Great web site by the way!

You need the Medium extension plates to use the Civic body if you only have a M03

Those original Monte Carlo body sets are VERY rare now...

However, given that you can now buy a XB replacement one easily and that the original one has holes drilled for the M01 and not the M03, I dont think I'd be in a great rush to buy it..

I think this is rare cause its the body from M01, correct me if I'm wrong.

A genuine M03 one went on ebay today... $122 USD with some spirited bidding at the last minute (not by me)
So there are still some out there.

Default shock oil and springs

hi, what setup of shock oil and springs is best for parking lot racing. It has a fairly smooth straightaway but becomes rough in other parts of the course.

I'm running a M03M, silver can with:
Tamiya CVA super mini shocks, long spacer in the front and shorter ones in back.
Blue springs front and red springs back (on-road tuned hard spring set)
and AE 60 shock oil

or just a brief explanation of what i shoukd be using on different surfaces.

thanks

Alright, of the two VW mini bodies, is it the VW Beetle Cup Racer or the VW Concept One that fits?

Miniman, do you have the internal spacer in the shocks? If so I'd take it out, rougher surfaces need the extra down-travel. But your spring and oil set-up is fine as is.
Set your ride height according to the specs on our website and you should be bang on the money.

Razorback, only the Concept One fits the Minis, the Beetle Cup Racer is 1/18th and 1/10th Touring Car

Does the SWB to MWB conversion mess up the body mount or wheel positions?

Not sure about the body mounts (I dont have a Swift shell to check) but I think the rears would be out slightly (too far forward by 15mm)
But the wheels should line up perfectly.

might work if you flipped the rear posts backwards.
