Anyone use the HPI Civic Body on the M03 chassis? How does it fit? Am particularly interested in the front hood. Is it high enough to fit the front body post without being too high? Can the body be lowered properly? Please advise before I buy a few of these bodies. Thanks
the new m03-m fits the hpi civic body. the body posts are fine, but the wheel base you have to watch.

Default Ball diffs and more

Will the Manta Ray ball diff work on the mini? Also would it be more beneficial to run a Front wheel drive mini or a rear wheel drive Alfa in an oval race? My friends and I are running oval with the mini's and having a blast...........I like the look of the alfa but it is rear wheel drive so I am not sure if it will work as well..........thanks

Yes the Manta Ray ball diff will fit the m03/m04 mini, as will the ta03 ball diff.
I think on an oval track the rear wheel drive m04 would be better as it is a little taller geared for better top speed.

Default servo saver

Does the stock tamiya servo saver that comes with the RTR's fit Futaba servos?

Default Spool??

Guys,
Has anyone tried to lock the diff (spool) and what did it go like or is the ball diff the best option.

I've locked the diff with super glue before, no good for a track with tight corners as it pushed real bad and is not tcs legal. Most people run the Manta Ray ball diff. If tcs legal is not an issue and your track will allow it you could try the one way, It works real well unfortunatly the clubs near me that run mini won't allow it.

OK I will try the ball diff as I am losing mid corner speed with wheelspin on the unloaded inside wheel and is killing lap times.

Try using a thicker grease, or packing the gear diff with thick grease, like AW grease.
I feel that the gear diff still pulls better than a Ball diff.
