It will live again....there just isn't much happening. We've already covered basic set-up/build for 03/05's and there isn't much new in the Mini world to update the site with.

Mini Nats is on in a couple of months and we will cover that. New releases of stuff we cover on the FB page.

Yeah, but Facebook blows chunks. Time for a dummy account.

Incorrect. It just pumps the numbers which is self-defeating.

Anyone know of spec-r arms that are actually in stock anywhere? They are sold out everywhere I've looked.

They are 10x15x4 (assuming you are talking about the 3Racing diff), a common RC size.

Need some help here. Finally got the bearing set for my M05 and was able to get the chassis apart and put all the bearings in. My question is now how do you properly set the pinion/spur mesh as it seems the only way to mount the motor back on is to assemble the chassis again and then do it blindly. Please tell me there's an easier way.

I personally with chassis together used a piece of piano wire stuck the wire into the drive train hole and marked it to the depth to the outside of the spur to the inside of the motor plate. Then it gives you a good reference and is generally spot on.

When all else fails, read the instructions. Remember the little plastic cup with the slot in the side???? That's what you use to set your pinion. There is a specific instruction in your manual that shows you haw to mount the pinion.

The motor plate can be a problem if it rotates on the motor when you're installing it cause the holes then won't line up. Use a 3mm machine screw that is at least 30mm in length and remove the head. Put on the motor plate, then thread in the screw one or so turns. Line the screw up in the chassis and seat the motor. Install the other motor screw, then remove the screw without the head (it should be long enough to grab and turn) then install a motor screw. The screw without the head should keep the motor plate from rotating and will align the motor for you also.

The other alternative is to use the aluminum motor mount and leave out the motor plate.

If you want to use the fibreglass motor washer, just use a dab of thick grease to keep it in place when you put the motor in.

I did. This is an RTR car so of course the instructions aren't as detailed as with a kit, but even the exploded view isn't that helpful. I've built kits before, but this one is just different. I'll figure it out eventually. Half the fun of RC is the maintenance. Well at least for me anyways. Thanks for the input.

Haven't done this in awhile, so don't know if you can still do this. At one time you could go to the Tamiya website and download the manuals.

Hell yeah! Tamiya's compiled all the good stuff on one page for us. It's a good resource.
