Dumb, dumb, dumb...the kit servo saver teeth don't fit the Hitec teeth. Stupid mistake because I go through this with every Tamiya I build; Local HS carries Hitec servos but none of the Tamiya kits have servo savers that fit Hitec.

Anyway, I replaced the servo saver and now the car is awesome!

I don't see your name in the mini class. Moving on to other cars (F1 & FWD Touring)? Say it ain't so!

The grid listing is all messed up at this time. At least 10 + names in the mini class are not running mini at all. The grid listings are being rectified, so the names are in the correct classes.

These things happen.

Brownies rocks! Their prices and shipping rates are second to none. Last year they sold me a set of Tamiya S Grip premounts for $35, including shipping, to Canada. Wow! I'm really looking forward to seeing their new website and hope it incorporates more online shopping features.

To update you on my current situation, my wife ordered two brand new, but heavily discounted light fixtures from a company in New Jersey, three days after I placed my order for an ESC with HobbyPartz. She paid $20 shipping for a rather large box that arrived in about a week. I paid $43 for a small box, regular post, no signature required at my end, and it's still on the other side of the Rockies. I feel a little ripped off right now.

On the plus side, the stuff I ordered from A-Main was super affordable and shipping was very realistic. They and Brownies both deserve more of my business. I think I ordered from TQ once too. Shipping was quite reasonable and they actually had stuff in stock for my Genetic. Nice!

Just put some 3 Racing shocks on my new to me M03. What kind of rebound if any do most use? I realize this is more of a TC type concern, just curious.

I have built my shocks with zero rebound for quite a few years now. The car seems more settled to me ever since.

I use none because I found it bounced all over the place otherwise (M03 w/TRF shocks).

Please keep in mind that I'm a gimp when it comes to Mini racing compared to some of the guys in this thread so take their advice over mine!

Like in most things, it sort of depends on what you're trying to do. Zero rebound is a good default position, but having some rebound in the shocks can be useful at times. More than 2mm seems to be counterproductive regardless of conditions.

I always try for zero, but end up with a little. Seems to work well.

Thanks everyone. I'll shoot for zero and see how that goes.

Guys, do you know of a rounded lipo that fits the m05 that uses 4mm bullet connectors directly to the battery rather than wires? I just toasted mine today and would like to buy another.

Thanks
Dave
