Fluffy, you need to get that sucker down a LOT more. We're talking in the region of 5-6 mm, so half what you're currently running. It'll transform your car.
I'm not sure how you can do it if you're running the bog standard M05 friction shocks as there's no easy way to do it with them.
You're gonna need to change shocks I'm afraid (unless someone else knows any better way?)

Hey Tony. I have the oil filled shocks on my M05. I was talkin about how there isnt any shock tower adjustment holes for lower or higher ride height. Any ideas? Thanks

You dont use shock tower adjustments to change ride height.

Read THIS (about halfway down) to show you how to change your shock length to drop the car down.

gruman28,

The Tamiya reinforced gear set works the same as the originals. Just black and should last longer. I have these fitted to my car and seems no different to me, they still have the same gear noise, even when using a little spray of silicon lube on them.

Later,

Calvin.

Wow very cool! I was wondering what those little spacers were for lol. That's a really cool and informative web site. Thanks for the help!

Thanks. I ordered a set of both. Does anyone know where I can order a set of spline outdrive cups? The ones that go through the diff (guess thats what they are called). I have a few different diffs I use and they all have the old splines on them. Mine are wore out.

Thanks
Chris

Find attached a Link to Tamiya USA website for Hopups for the MO5. I believe google can be your best friend.

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/rcp...=desc&offset=1

In response to your question PNo 54182. Check link above for accuracy.


Regards,

Calvin.
