Hope that helps.

A few posts ago someone also asked about the 03, 03L, 03M comparos. It looks like the M is the best of all worlds turns in harder, more stable on the sweepers. of course your mileage may vary......

AW grease?? Could you spell it for me? Thanks

I just bought one of those new 1600 Suzuki Swift's. Is there any special building tip or problems with this car?

I put a .1x3mm shim under or over (your choice) the front uprights when you bolt them into the C-hub, takes some of the slop away without binding..

Not that I have the swift kit, but I bought the suspension parts for my M-04

What the minimum amount of torque needed for the steering servo of the M03 when powered by the stock silver can motors? Since we race spec, non-rebuildable motors, weight becomes of paramount importance. I know the Futaba 9602 will work fine but will the 9601 with less torque and nylon gears be okay? How about the 9650? I have both of these servos and they are lighter than the 9602 because of their nylon gears. Thanks.

Default My M-03 Outlaw class

Hi all,

Just want to share some pics of my M-03 Outlaw class...
This time is the body shots ...
It fits the M03 chassis (not M or L version) and can use std 1/10 size touring tires (foam or rubber). I use Kawaharas on these pics.

It's Skyline GT R-34 model

Enjoy...

Difuser: What are you using to shim the gear diff? Does Tamiya have a shim for this?
