Then it's servo time, and time to unite that Savox black edition with the HT servo saver and all that servo bling

The manual asks the servo horn to be attached at a 10deg angle off-centre with the servo centred. I didn't quite go as far as getting my protractor out, but reckon it's close enough

And it's in, screwed down using the blue aluminium servo mounts that came with it

Getting near the end now :(

Next step was to install the battery supports, made up of six different parts from the J Tree.

The four L/R parts look identical but have different part numbers in pairs, but a test fit helped identify which pair was which.

Again, I find it amazing the precision of the design engineering, particularly the two J4 parts which fit over the battery struts cut into the chassis and then slide into the centre of the chassis, just (JUST) stopping outside the drive belt. Everything is so snug, and just so

Then on with the final hop up that came with the kit, the blue carbon fibre battery plate (49427)

It comes complete with two blue aluminium mount screws that replace the kit parts (9805886) for a nice little finishing touch

I added a bit of sponge tape to the bottom of the battery plate for a bit of a soft cushion between it and the battery

And that, sadly, is the chassis build done.

Just need to set up the ESC, add the tyre foams and glue the tyres on and it'll be ready for a test run!

Once it stops raining....

Orange on the shelf, Black on the tarmac? 

Yeah, I think that's the conclusion I've come to as well. Why choose :lol:??

Both look great, whole thing looks great, inspiring me to crack my 84431 out, Don't have a Porsche on my shelf yet

Definitely do it, I loved building that one too, especially the opportunity to work on a few modifications and try out some new tools :)

But despite the title of that thread, it ain't 'baby blue' any more....

And a side-by-side chassis comparison, which if nothing else shows how effective that wheelbase mod is on the TA02SW
