Looking good. I can't say I have tried the super slicks. Here we would get left behind with the little tyres.

Your big toy looks great.

Later,

Calvin

These surfaces usually require softer springs and more suspension travel. A situation that does not favor the small Mini shocks.
What would you recommend then? I run on those surfaces on the CVA mini, and I do sometimes feel there's not enough travel. Perhaps take out the internal spacer?

Kimbrough is 100 times better. Tamiya Hi-torque has lots of slop. Superglue and some small plastic can help take out the slop.

Anyone run and fit Traxxas XL-5 ESC on M05? they are bit too big but can anyone fit those? how are they?
I need new esc that can run brushed 20T motor and run lipo batteries with low voltage cut off.

The TC TRF shocks. By using different piston rod lengths and internal spacers, you can get the type of shock action you want. There is a lot of flexibility here. It has nothing to do with the amount of travel, but has more to do with how much roll you want or side to side weight transfer. Or stated another way, how smoothly the shock works throughout especially on the compression side.

In the Mini shock, your choices are very limited and you can't get around the smaller oil volume. If you analyze it, you'll be able to figure out why the smaller oil volume can work against you in some cases and for you in others.

Check with Sean at TQ, I believe he ships internationally. He usually has this in stock.

Default Tamiya Springs

Are the M0-5 kit springs, the 3 white sets with a blue, red and yellow dot on them, the same size and weight as the Tamiya TRF Springs, ie the red (53630), Yellow and Blue (53632) srings etc.

Thanks.

Hi Guys
Bit new to this forum. Been racing my m05 here in the uk for 5 years now. I'm running a blinged s spec. My club has just changed to brush less to m chassis class.
Took my m05 apart last night to fit new 3 racing gear diff.... then realised i was missing 2 rather large bearings needed??? either side of the out drives! why 3 racing don't include this in the kit is beyond me?? anyhow had to build her back up with the original kit diff, re lubed.
I just hope the kit diff holds up with the new torque from the hobbywing 13t brushless combo.
Any tips on running kit diff with brush less system for longevity?
Cheers
Damien.
