Best ones are the short Tamiya TRF dampers (#54000), but the Tamiya CVA Super Mini is an equally usable alternative (#50746).

If you have an M-05 Pro, you probably have the clear versions of #50746 on the car already, the clear plastic is known to be fragile, so you should be able to replace just the bodies with the black ones. Not sure of the part numbers off the top of my head though.

Intellect 3800. Fits great with the standard battery holders, no offsetting required.

Looks terrific. As I said the problem is with the wires coming out of the end of most batteries. It's still a good idea to offset the battery to balance out the motor weight.

I checked my usual suppliers and could not find this battery listed. Does anyone know of a source in the USA ?????

Ok , after a lot of searching I finally found them in stock in a company that won't take 3 weeks to ship from Hong Kong to new York. Man tamiya parts are a lot and not so easy to locate. Any suggestions on where to buy

M-Chassis is also amazing, with cheap shipping, hard to find parts and really cool stickers!

ok im a all right newbee driver
but this last weekend I lost 2 lipos batteries in my m-05
took a hit on the side ( twice ) and cook my batteries
I thought it was esc/motor but when it was removed it works fine
1 baTT was a gens ace other was a wolf pack
what / how do you guys run your battery in m-05
it allways seem to stick out the side
I live in canada so lipo selection here kinda sucks here
what to do?

Pro Amps do a 4000 Lipo and LRP do a 4600 which all fit in the MO5 and MO3. Depends on how much you want to spend on batteries and whether you prefer deans plugs, corally plugs or the standard tamiya plugs. Most replace the Tamiya plugs with a Deans. The 3800 IP is a good battery also. With the corally plugs just make sure you do not reverse polarity them or else your ESC will let out the smoke quickly.

Later,
