I've just visited eagle-racing website but no pics.
I think it's an old product, listed under M03 parts

For better bumpers on the M03 chassis would the M04 bumper fit, using part # 50850 (E2, E3) for the bracket and part # 6275061 for the urethane bumper?

I know that the bumper for the TL01B does fit. Use part # 0005688 (C11, C20). It’s a “kick up” type buggy bumper/skid, but fits fine.

I also found M03 speed tune gears at Integy.

while looking for the bumper, which is not at integy.

If anybody tries the M04 bumper let us know if it works.

I'm pretty sure the M04 bumper will not work, the m04 mount has a tapered screw pattern, where as the TL01 / M03 has a straight pattern. 2 of the 4 holes might fit, you could create new holes in the chassis for the top holes

Any reports on how well the RP30 and RP36 mini tires work?

Which are better for them, the Medium or Medium-soft inserts?

Spoke to Adrian over at Schumacher who imports the RP tires and the RP36 has been working very well at our local track (indoor high-bite asphalt) and the 30 has been working well on out door asphalt. I'll talk to other mini racers to see which inserts they run in what compound.

We actually have a large shipment of RP mini tires and inserts coming in along with bodies, spare parts, hop-ups, and we are putting together titanium screw kits and ceramic bearing kits for the mini. Also, we're trying to get a couple more different kinds of bodies from Japan for the Mini into the states.

Take Off only makes a Medium and Medium Soft insert there is no insert firmer than Med. The Mini tires with the Med inserts are not all that soft.

A friend bought the RP30's but traction rolled so much that he went back to x-patterns. He loaned them to me and I could hardly turn without rolling. We are on high traction asphalt. Any tips from someone having them work? RP's are great on our sedan's so I wanted them to work on the mini; any thoughts?

How much traction compound are you using on the tire? Just start using a thinner band toward the inside of the tire until you get the sweet spot between acceleration grip and minimal rollovers..

I put a layer of CA glue on the outer sidewall of sedan tires to reduce rolling for my TC, why not mini tires?

at my local track (Glen Burnie Hobbytown, MD.) Many people run the 30's. A few run the xpatterns, some run tamiya slicks. Me personally, i like the S grips with about half the tread worn down.

RB as corrected before by Adrian and Troy. I am running the 36 fornt which should help lessen bite a bit. I have the medium insert in the car and it could prolly use a bit stiffer insert like the Hpi. you can use CA on about a 1/16" stripe on the very outer edge to also reduce side bite a bit. You don;t need much and it will do the trick. Our bite is very similar to SoCal but our track is a bit more abrasive.
