ABC Hobby's 240Z version is 210mm & HPI's version is 225mm. There is also a 240ZG (wider flares) version for 1/10 by ABC Hobby.

TeamBluegroove on eBay for $30 shipped. 210mm wb and 160mm wide. Almost 170 at front fenders. I like it but tight on the battery wires. The scale look fades on the lower front end. And I wish it had the rear wing No window masks but has the overspray mask
I wasn't going for super scale and I know that the body will get thrashed pretty quick since I am new to on road. A 240z has been one of my favorite cars since I was little, that along with the 510. It was $10-15 cheaper than any other body. It didn't have bumpers or a stick kit.

New to the thread, putting an M05 together this week. Do I need grease on the idler, spur and diff gears? Seems like this would add considerable drag...

Running box-stock silver can motor with cheapie NiMh cells.

I did when I first built mine, and I'm planning on it with the wifes m05 when it arrives next week. But I do think it adds drag to the car initially, but as the excess spins of the gears I think it gets faster. I haven't added any extra since I got the car.

Of course if anyone wants to share ultra fast mini secrets, I'm listening.

I have some new gears comming and I was thinking about trying some chain wax for motorcycle chains that I have. It is a liquid that dries into a thin wax. Anything that doesn't atract dirt has to be better

Unhappy Mini Keeps On Tumbling Over When Turning

Hi guys,

I have an M05 S Spec, Long Wheel Base Config.

It keeps on tumbling over while turning and it is not funny anymore.

Set-up:

- front hard white springs with BLUE pen marks
- rear hard white springs with YELLOW pen marks
- tires are Tamiya slicks with medium foam inserts
- ride height is that the arms are parallel to the ground
- oil is the oil that comes with the kit
- my EPA is already at 60% and if I go any lower, the car won't turn anymore
- the tracks are asphalt high grip indoor
- shocks are the blue TRF shocks

What am I doing wrong?

1. Gears: Don't grease the gears! Run them dry, or use a tiny squirt of spray silicone.

2. Traction roll: Have you tried applying a tiny bead of CA glue to the sidewall of the front tires, right where they meet the tread?

Mount your electronic very low, maybe you run harder tyres in front to reduce the traction roll.

Try and build the car with a tiny amount of droop if you haven't already.
