YES, put the mini arms, dog bones, shocks, body posts, bumbers and tires.
Here is a couple of tips.
Make sure you put the pinion on the TL01 way, not the mini way.
Use the 23 tooth pinion.
Put the mini ball nuts ( the ones on the front steering knuckle ) upside down. You'll see what I mean when you try and attached the steering links from the servo.

The shaft drilling was easy after I figured out to use the cut end...

These are not TCS legal... YET, but if some one is running a mini class go ahead and ask them if you can. Heck, ask them if you can run with TL01s...

Hey all,

I'm about to get my first mini on Saturday, a brand new M03L. I was wondering if this car handles well out of the box?

I'm going to race it in a mini novice series at my local track. The track is a bit dusty, track temp ~60-70*F. Using RP-30's on my 415 makes my car handle well, but I was just wondering if the M03L will handle right out of the box.

Thanks

Out of the box:

Stock box tires are no good, so try to get Tamiya 60D type A or the RP mini slicks works well and ball bearings are very important as the kit only comes with bushings. Bevel Stock diffs works if you shim it abit so the diff action is very tight. I would also get a 20tooth pinion and maybe an RS540 as the motor included is only a 540J.

Other option to consider would be universals, 2 degree rear hubs and oil
shocks.

M03-M Suzuki Swift already comes with wheel ball bearing, 2 degree rear hubs and a 20 tooth pinion so you might consider this than the L version.

It's great.. has a shorter wheelbase than the BMW Cooper, thus quicker to turn, longer than the Rover, so less twitchy, as well as it has a wing to help keep the rear planted in high-speed turns. It's also a very rounded body, so less air resistance. They've done well with this kit's body, not to mention the LW suspension.

The bevel diffs come with 2 shims instock form, if you add more then it will tighten the diff action. Make sure you pack the inside with AW grease.

Check the ball bearings in the drivetrain for any binding as the Carbon shafts as basically the same but only lighter so its not mean to alter the speed of the car at all.

Any type of grease is better than nothing.

Dan is right but just be careful what type of grease you use as some oil based grease (automotive) can attack plastic and makes it brittle. Use a proper gear grease for RC.
