- 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?

Drop ride height to legal limit or just above.

Default Traction rolling

+1 on CA for the front tire sidewalls and lowest possible ride height

Haven't seen many for a while, but there are real full sized cars that have teddy bear hub caps here! Is that another stoopid Aussie only thing we have?

Nope. I've seen them here as both hubcaps and as alloy wheels. Horrible in both cases.

Quick question....

Does anyone use the stock Tamiya gear diff in there cars?

Last summer I put one in my M05. I filled it with some grease I had on the shelf (?). Had a nice feel. I ran it all last year. At big races I was top of the "B" or Bottom of the "A". At club races I was always in the hunt.

Everyone else rans a Ball Diff. I tried one at the last race. The car was not to my liking.

I am going back to my trusty gear diff, but was wondering if I was the only one that liked this set up?

Thanks
Chris

Chris, Tamiya TRF drivers use the gear diff (with gum). You are in good company with the gear diff.

Ackerman angle on m05, Less or more, none. what effect it on m05 ? im thinking of changing to no ackerman angle (both wheel are true to each other)
will that improve the car? I got 3racing alumiumum steering rank.

so and after taking part in WCICS I feel like smashing my mo5......no not really
I got to learn a ton. im going to say 40% car 60% skill
So when i was corner marshall all that I was thinking" DAM look at the driving lines, and on a main most of the cars were allmost at full speed for most of the track"

so the guys that run mo5's do you still run dogbones or what?
they seem to alll ways come out on me? why?

my son runs a mo3 and he seems faster on the straights why?
we both run bearings and spec motors&esc , gear diffs

as a newbie would a ball diff help me? if so what one mo5 or ta03
I notice that this thread has over 1100 pages,could someone give me direction on setting up a spec mo5


thanks for any help

hotrod, just my personal thoughts.

http://www.rccarsrtr.com/index.php/t...05-tuning.html

M03 is lighter, maybe reason why it is faster.

Gear diff is good, I would stick with it. Or the TA03 fully tightened.

Its funny how differently we all go about setting up a mini. Here we have a minimum weight of 1330, but its not enforced at a club level. I decided recently to bring my M05 up to the legal weight (I had scales, and chassis weights...). It actually drives better. I added 25g to the front bumper and 5g over the battery. Perhaps this is because of the hobbywing system. It does produce a lot of wheelspin, so the extra weight over the front helps with that.

I know a guy at our track that sets up his mini like this (harder rear spring, softer front), which is opposite to how I set mine up (harder front, softer rear), yet we race wheel to wheel. My car is pretty good on carpet, but its on rails on asphalt.

Biggest 2 things i've found with mini setup is ride height, and tyre choice. Followed by the diff to help the corner exit and get the power down. Otherwise its mostly preferential stuff.
