Has anyone any tips on building a smooth 3racing oil filled gear diff? I have built it as per instructions and find it stiff and notchy, I removed 1 shim from each side and it is better but not as I'd like. I notice that if I lossen the 4 screws holding it together it gets smoother which is not ideal having loose screws.

I have a vague memory of removing some flashing from the gears, take a close look at them. I also left out one large shim from each side and it feels pretty smooth.

Another thing to bear in mind with the 3Racing diff is that the standard o-ring seals are exceptionally stiff and cause a lot of drag. I'd run-in the diff for as long as possible to bed them in before choosing the oil and putting it in the car.

I've got a feeling I had to remove some flashing from the circumference of the gears, but I am running the full complement of shims in mine. Since each moulding is slightly different, adding or removing shims can help.

Thanks for the replies guys i'll strip it down and check the gears for flashing then give it a good run in.

Apart from HERE, pricey though
Thanks Tony and MD,
Pricey indeed, may have to rethink a bit, might just spray the white rims I have instead.

Anyone use tamiya CVA mini shock unit II on m05 with internal 4 - 5mm spacer to lower the car??
i race on smooth tight carpet track.
I'm replacing 3racing body as they leak LOTS with this shock body. 3racing piston/shaft fits fine.

Is there enough suspesion travel on those with 5-6mm ground clearance?

I'm in the process of building a set of mini cvas for my father's m03, 63 years old and still racing! I test fitted the shocks and there's plenty of travel to achieve 6mm ride height with 55d tires but not 60d.

I have a question regarding oil weight with these mini cva shocks. I'm using m-chassis aluminum dampers on my m05, 400cst oil all round. What oil should I use with these cvas to get a similar damping action?

My old super mini cvas had the clear 900cst oil, these mini cvas come with 400cst.

Found 2 sets on Ebay from "Jasons Store".

$7 a set, so not too bad at all.

Middle of the night, really bored question: What's the most useless piece of bling on your mini? Mine would be the carbon gear shafts. Not really blinky, but utterly pointless.

So if someone was going to get a M05 just to beat around his block, would stock be ok (yeah....right) or are there some essential upgrades?

Jim, I may not be blingy, but I'm probably the most useless item that my car has.
