    lightweight chassis sucks. i broke my chassis in 3 places racing and melted it where motor got too hot. everyone else running TL01s said they had the same trouble and they all switched back to the black chassis. i did too last night. i think it looks cooler cause everything matches now.

    What are you guys doing to break it? Jumping? Or do you guys have like 13t motors?

    Id say just drifting and accedently over accelling or something and hitting a wall. Tamiya cars are durable... but their chassis' are usually plastic and what not and plastics not all that strong.

    a EMS... dont know what that is. But a ESC, is a Electronic Speed Control. Controls the speed by elecrical signals.

    A MSC is Mecanical Speed Control. It uses a nother servo on a arm with a little piece of wire on it and the servo moves the arm increaseing or decreaseing the speed.
