If you want to try some have you local shop contact Schumacher or order on line at www.racing-cars.com tomorrow (the website will be updated to show new stock tonight).
I've been running these tires for the last two weeks. They are the BOMB! I'll be picking up another set for back ups when my current set finally gives up traction...but that isn't looking like it'll be anytime soon.

I've been running on an unprepared parking lot. All I've done is clean them with Simple Green and wipe them dry....no additives needed.

Default Grease in Diff

How much grease do you put in the diff? (the standard MO3 gear diff)
Do you fill it or about half fill it or what?
I hear there is an art to getting the diff action just right. What is the secret please.

The 36's or the 30's & w/what inserts? Were they better than the Tamiya slicks?

Default Mini wandering around down the straight

How do you stop a mini MO3, wandering around down the straight. Mine drifts left or right as I acelerate or drive down the straights.
All screws are tight, there is a bit of slop in the suspension and the wheel 'C' hubs, can this be fixed with shims?
Will lowering the ride height help this?
Thanks in advance

Default Lock your DIFF

For those who want to lock the diff. I tried this Tamiya part, it works fine and it isnt permanent. Two plastic parts replace the three metal gears in the stock diff. It helps acceleration out of corners, but makes the car a little more squirrelly.

They are the G-5 parts on this PDF exploded view of the Tuoareg file from Tamiya.

Default Rear toe in

Tamiya part # 53345 . Works great, better down the straights and helps carry speed in corners.

Default 03 or 04

Is the 04 chassis a big improvement or advantage over the 03? Also what are your thoughts about front vs. rear wheel drive? I was thinking of getting the new suzuki as well.......I love these things.

Just got finished building my Swift. I really like this kit and the body and decals are great. My local club is starting a mini class on our electric track and there are people waiting in line for this kit, so I decided to add a little flare on the lid to make it stand out, hopefully.
