Default M05 RA????

Hi
Just looking at getting an M05 and have been offered an RA spec chassis,
What is the difference of the RA and if it can what is needed to convert to std M05? Does the RA just have higher ride height?

I found an interesting issue with my M 03 that I thought I would ask you wise-old-sages about. I recently disassembled my 03' to get it ready to race a carpet series (TQ Raceway). After I reassembled the car, I found that the rear camber seemed to be zero on the right, but was positive 1 degree on the left (Top of tire leaning out) using 2 degree Tamiya plastic
hubs. I replaced the "A" arms, upper fixed links, both hubs, hinge pins, pivot screws, ball studs and made sure the shocks were equal length with a digital caliper. At arms level the left side has 1 degree positive camber and zero degree on the right.

I have never noticed this before and nothing I do seems to correct it. I know a set of adjustable camber links will allow me to adjust it, but has anyone else noticed a difference from side to side? Are the parts molded slightly off?

It's pretty much a few suspension pieces that make it what it is. I think it's the front and rear hub carriers.

Just curious if anyone found using the lower hole of the rear aluminium upright useful? U know it reduces camber gain, but is the effect significant?

What does the hot ticket seem to be at present for LiPo packs in the Minis seem to be? Need the round-sided packs (not sure what the new M05/M06 take).

Thanks.

Pretty much all the rc-mini team run THESE.

They have the rounded edges, hard case, and they also use the Corally style connectors so you dont have wires poking out the end and making the car body bulge out.
