Use a 20 tooth pinion

Also how long were you running around for ?

RC Market I'd guess.

In other news, I've just cut and drilled a Blitz C30 body to an M03, it clears the servo fine, and I think the nose is long enough to fit over a Xevo chassis, which means you can run it 210mm without it looking goofy.

Good to see another brand of double joint universals ... I hope they are stronger than the Spec R items.

The Spec R items worked well and reduced steering chatter when you're on full steering lock ... but I wouldn't run them if you use a spool.

The yeah racing ecs look like they can fit an M03 better than the Arrowmax ecs . In any case, I fitted losi lcd's (losa3333) in my M03 with alot of grinding of the ball that holds the pin and the outdrive !!! Yeah racing might also be a better fit than the lcd's ,but might weigh more because of lost lcd material .......

2 Questions....
I got the m05 MiTo model and as I was putting it together it dawned on me that the diff isn't sealed and needs something to keep it from diffing out. would some really heavy diff fluid work? I was thinking 300k or even heavier?

The guy at the lhs said he has one and he just used some shoegoo to lock it. I don't want a locked diff do I?

Also, I just realized that this model is the long wheelbase. The guys at the track I'm racing at said i need the medium wheelbase. Can the wheelbase be adjusted? I thought I read somewhere that they are.

smaller pinion, longer runtime
bigger pinion, more topspeed

Smaller pinion should make motor run cooler. Both over-gear or under-gear are no good. One overheats everything, and other one lose lots of performance.

Stock diff uses grease only.
Wheelbase is adjustable, check the manual, you'll need a medium wheelbase body.
