    Hi Howff! In case you haven't updated the mini 4wd news, there is MS chassis which has the motor at the center.

    http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/javascript/mini4wd/img/ms_chassis.gif

    for the mini 4wd's setting, you can take a look on the pics of our 1st meeting. we dont use the aluminium adjustable bumper anymore, but frp plate instead.

    some reference for u

    the gear box is poorly made for that brand...
    i tried hard to integrate it with the chassis and i broke the lock a bit, but the motor can run. hmm, do not put any hope on the fake mini 4wd that is made in china
