Mabuchi 380 is the Speed 400 size motor instead of the Speed 300/Mabuchi 370/Tubby Cubby/Wattage 370 size. Different class of motor and it will be as if, if not more current hungry than the 370 motors.

I guess the Stress Tech will probably be Stress Tested and either they will be more durable or replaced broken parts.

Being more of a monster truck than a stadium racer will it compete with the 2wd Mini T?

Let me see if I can get some photos and an answer to your receiver question.
Thanks. I hope it's not the same sort of lock-in as the Mini-T, where you have to dump all the elctronics to upgrade the servo or ESC!

A picture of the chassis and electronics can be found at
http://photos.hobbytalk.com/showphoto.php?photo=2136

Got the following details from DuraTrax:
The RX is a DuraTrax RX-100 AM 75MHz made by Futaba. It's equivalent to
a Futaba R122JE

As a note looking at the picture, looks like any standard reciever & ESC should fit. I didn't ask about the servo but my guess is that a "standard" servo is also used.

Thanks. Interesting layout. It looks like it may be a challenge to change crystals quickly. You have to take the deck off to change battery packs; that looks like a tight fit but do-able.

The battery connector looks a bit odd for an RTR (Sermos?); I'll bet they don't wind up with those for the production model.
