Hi, recetly I purchase RIDE 60D LOW PROFILE TIRES

But I can't put it in "normal" m-chassis wheels. What kind of wheels can I use? Or what can I do to use m-chassis wheels?
Thanks

They require a special wheel which is a little larger in diameter. In the USA, you could try TQ racing or one if the Hong Kong shops.

Where'd you buy the tires that didn't also sell the wheels? They need to hire better salesmen. Upsell! Here's a link to RC MART. If toure looking, they're usually referred to as "Ride inch up wheels" and I've only seen them in white or chrome.

Anyway, Google is your friend, my friend. This one was way too easy.

I've got a brand new tub of Kyosho 500k silicone, just waiting for the day Tamiya comes to their senses and put the M03 back into production AND makes a decent oil filled diff for it.

That will happen the same day I fart glitter and sunshine.

Tamiya make a decent diff for the M03 (and the M05). It's called the TA03 ball diff.....

The TA03 diff just isn't cutting it anymore, not for us anyway. We've got guys who've tested ball diffs vs spools vs oil filled and the latter wins hands down. Some are claiming 1 second per lap. On a 10 second lap time, that's a bunch. We do have one fellow still running a ball diff who is regularly in the top 5, but he's also an excellent driver compared to most. He also used to win most of the time. I tested my ball diff back to back with a VERY shimmed out stock unit and my lap times were much quicker, as well.

You've got to remember that this is also fairly specific to our racing conditions, as opposed to yours. We're running on medium grip carpet, with a low surface temperature (last major event the track surface was 15c/59f, with the occasional -20 blowing through the building) and our maximum straightaway length is ~80 feet. 60 feet corner to corner if you want to discount lane width. Plus, we're running Tamiya tires as spec, no 55mm gumballs allowed. Our races are generally about corner speed launch out of the corners, with one good(ish) straight. Even our motors were selected more for torque than for top end.

As one of my fellow racers likes to say, the numbers don't lie.

One would have to assume that on a more open, grippy asphalt, warm track surface, that a different setup might work better. I'll trade my carpet track for your asphalt any day of the week. I miss my ball diff. It was SO good!

You're probably best off sticking with the stock 20t pinion, unless you track is only 10ft long and sticky as hot tar.

Woke up this morning which means it was the start of another glorious day. As many of you may know from my posts, i'm a very senior citizen. Today is going to be a great day cause it's my 77th birthday and I still haven't developed the sense to stop playing with these toy cars.

Have some bodies to paint, need to rebuild a TA03 ball diff that's getting a little loose after 8 or 9 months in my M03M. M05 SWB is almost done and my M03 LWB needs a little refurbishing. The M05M needs nothing cause it's just dialed at the track it was built for. I'm getting a little older, but not dead yet.
