monkeyracing's info is correct. He listed pinions that are .6 module. He did not say to get the 48 pitch pinions. 48 pitch and "48 pitch metric"/0.6 mod pinions are two different things. Maybe you got confused with the wording "48 pitch" metric. Just follow his part numbers 1118 and 1120.

Look here at the very bottom set of pinions.

Is it possibly the biggest m chassis flop ever? We didn't even bother to do Part 2 of our review on the car because Tim lost the will to live after Part 1.

How could Tamiya have got it SO wrong?.............
What is wrong with it?

The post states that 48p and 0.6 mod are the same thing. That information is frustrating and useless and wrong.

Robinson Racing makes a line of pinions in the Tamiya/0.6 mod/48p "metric" pitch.

His post that you quoted say 48p "metric" and also has tamiya/0.6 mod wording. In the end all that matters is that you got ones that work.

Dude, not only have I been running these pinions in my minis since 2008, I even gave you part numbers. I can't make it any easier for you.

Part numbers are easy to figure out. EG: 20 tooth would be 1120. 18 tooth is 1118.

You tell them Monkeyracing, you tell the world! Robinson racing gears ROCK! In a Tamiya mini chassis. Part # 1120 makes my mini go round.

You're getting crutch to the goodies, pal. My feet don't go that high anymore. Unless I'm falling over in a comical, bungling, Clouseau-esque fashion.

Install it so that the rod is at 90 degrees to the servo arm/saver centerline. That gives you even travel R and L.

For those experienced Mini drivers which chassis do you feel is the fastest today; M-03, M-05, M-06?

What chassis is Brandon Koslosky using this year or in the past few to win the TCS championships?

What tire works best on carpet, please provide part number?

Thank you

Although I have never run the M06, I have a lot of experience with the M03 and M05. In my experience he M03 is lighter, more nimble but harder to drive, while the M05 is heavier, more consistent and easier to drive. Back to back I think the advantage goes to the M03 (for me at least). The tire setup for carpet I find best for the M03 is M-Grip fronts (50684) with hard inserts with Type A slick (53340) rears with soft inserts. That setup for me works everywhere! However when I ran the M05 I ran M-Grips all around with hard inserts in the front and soft inserts in the rear.

To sum it up in the hands of the right driver I think the M03 has the advantage, however for most its easier to go faster with the M05.

The M03M or L. Actually, Brandon"s first win was with a M05M. Last year it was a M03M. Both cars used a Swift body. BK and I had been having this conversation ever since the M05 was introduced. Finally got him to admit the M03 was the better platform. The M03 rules at the Tamiya track, although the M05 have been getting better.

The consensus locally is that the M03 is the easier car to chassis tune. It will run well with a wider range of set ups than the 05. The 05 is really finicky on set up. You're either on or way off.

I gave my M06 kit away. It was tough to do, cause most of the guys didn't even want it for free.

Limited experience on carpet, but if you want to run Tamiya tires, the S-grips and the Type A seem to be the best. The S grips take careful tire prep to work though. For the smaller diameter tires the Sweeps are a good choice. You'll have to look up your own part #s cause I'm feeling lazy today and don't feel like looking them up for you.

Sweep tires are not legal for TCS racing. Stick with the Spec S grip tire.

Is there a setup sheet available for the M-03 or M-05? Can you provide a starting point setup even though it's for pavement?

Where's the best place in the US to but tires and parts?

Thanks for the help.
