Default Tamiya TCS Mini class

Those that have raced in a TCS race anywhere in the world please provide your feedback.

How do you run the dif in your Mini?
1. Ball diff, tight
2. Gear diff, shimmed tight, still has diff action
3. Gear diff, shimmed medium, still has diff action
4. Gear diff, box stock, spins freely

If none of the above please describe what you use for a diff and how it's setup?

Has anyone else heard the rumors of the clear blue M05 limited edition? If its as brittle as the shocks, it'll be a shelf queen.

Myself, Tim, and NT, each have one of the SUPER rare M03 clear chassis, and they are so brittle that you hold your breath even screwing the things together.....

ball diff, right...a little loc-tight on the diff screw so it don't back out

since you guys are talking about the clear chassis parts - how are the chrome parts? brittle or as durable as the standard parts?

the blue/sliver chrome chassis parts are just a strong as normal bits, as they are just std parts dipped in the coating

Wow~ Whats sorts of suspension arm is this? Doesn't look like Tamiya's...

Porsche is RR, would be nice if can fit in the M-06 chassis!!

Is this shocks brittle? Love the full suspension RWD touring, too bad Tamiya didn't do that. Tamiya only offer full suspension FWD chassis, like FF03, finger cross that they'll come out with one... (my fingers been crossed for >20years...)

Those are TA-02 rear arms. The arm mount about 3mm longer than the m-chassis, so like this i can adjust wheelbase with spacers inside the arms. Shocks are ok. Like the normal ones. No problems with plastic cracking or anything, as I was worried when pushing the ballnuts in.

I wanted a m-06 badly for this shell (hey I guess a wanted a m-06 period) but unfortunatly, those don't grow on trees (neither does money lol).

By the way you can get 2wd touring wheelbase on the m-04 by using 2 chassis spacers and then the TL-01 arms to get the 190 wide. Just use the LA version arms to get TRF like suspension, since the geometry is much better.

hey guys! im new to the m chassis but i am currently saving up for this http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBWXA&P=7. a few guys on here have pointed me in this direction since it has some good factory mods. I was wondering, i want to get a tamiya mini cooper body such as this one lol http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-85258...item20cbbe07f6. Is the factory tamiya lexan real brittle? Reason why im asking, i had a lancia delta body on a tt01 chassis. I hit a curb and the whole front end snapped off! if this body will be the same material i may need to go with hpi?

Tamiya's lexan is as strong as any other. I prefer their bodies. as they seem to hold up better than most to my sudden stop prone driving style. That particular shell may not be the best choice, as it's got a lot of doo-dads that will want to come off. You might want to consider a Swift or something similar. They come in two weights of lexan. Get the thicker one and it should last a while.

That's a good kit, btw.

Ok man cool, that sounds perfect. And thank you for the tips! now for power, i know the silver can is great. But something with a tad bit more spank would be cool too lol. Any suggestions? i used to have a tamiya factory can laying around, but who knows where that is. If i wanted to go brushless, what kv? all my stuff is probably over powered for this little guy.
