That's another aspect I like about the Kyosho rereleases. They went through and developed a fair amount beautiful, top notch option parts. They ain't cheap though :mellow:.

That's the first I've seen of those option parts existing for the Ultima.   I want those!

The official Kyosho PDF with the parts and option parts doesn't even have those towers or motor plate listed.

From the rc.kyosho.com website (all 3 parts are listed as "coming soon"):

UTW001 - CNC Motor Plate (Gunmetal/ULTIMA)   ¥3,600

UTW002 - Carbon Front Shock Stay (ULTIMA)   ¥2,000

UTW003 - Carbon Rear Shock Stay (ULTIMA)    ¥2,200

I am also more familiar with ball diffs and didn't want to have a smooth diff in the Ultima, so I used 60k.  It runs super straight, even on gravel.  I mounted pin tires in the front.  This way, it also runs in curves like on rails. I highly appreciate the Ultima, the RC10, however, will stay my favourite buggy!

Wow 60k diff fluid!!! I did install 30k in it and got somewhat better performance?.? 

Looks like I should have bought the closed cell foam fir the rear tires. Stock foam is a joke. 

What brand and model front tires do you run? What rear tires? Do you purchase the rear closed cell foams also? The stock foams are garbage. Cannot tell it has the foam in mine.
