Thank Scott "the professor" West from Karz in Calgary. It's his setup. I believe 3 racing sells an adjustable camber link set but I can't seem to find it online. Maybe someone else can chime in.

Where is your home track Justin?

Small world. Anthony most likely copied that from Scott. Not sure if you raced at your Wcics race but I think Scott gave another little seminar about Mini setup like he did the year before that hence "Professor".

Around your area, your target will be Anthony and when Brent comes up from Kamloops he's someone to chase too.

If you can make it to the Calgary Wcics race in March, you're probably looking at 30-40 mini deep field.

Yeah unfortunetly i couldn't make the wcics race in penticton so i missed the professor but i'm on the same lap as anthony but to keep up with him i need a bit more corner speed and steering. I'll keep trying but i think the blue springs will be the ticket i'm really close so i guess just keep trying track time cant hurt

Hi all,

I would like a black can motor but I run the 105 esc. The specs of that suggest a 25t motor limit but the black is 23t I think.

I guess I can't run that combo then?

Cheers
Ryan

Hi, for me M-Grip/S-Grip tires, ball bearings, lead weights (to put in front bumper). The stock gear diff is fine. To give it limited slip effect, fill it partially with thick oil then seal the edge with gasket sealer or hot glue gun.

Obviously bearings, but the most important is the aluminum steering rack. There are several on the market with the Tamiya one being the best and by far the most expensive.

As far as the other upgrades, many of them are dependent on the track and the surface you race on. It's better to see what the locals are running and copy that. An example of that would be the aluminum rear blocks. If they are using 2 degree blocks, you can save yourself the $40 by using the kit ones. Minis are like any other car, you can go crazy on option parts.

Since you're running WCICS, the Yeah Racing and 3Racing steering racks are viable. I've been using the Yeah Racing setup. It's pretty good and it has a lot of adjustability. Avid is great for bearings. The Revolutions series are a bargain at a buck each.

Does Tamiya include servo adaptor for 23 spline Spectrum servos? for a M05 would it be one marked with KO?
I am looking over my manual and puzzled at the moment?
Again thank you for all your help!

Hey guys,

I need some help. I ran these tires on my M-Chassis and they worked really, really fine and personally I like them more than the sweeps. Plus, they don't grab dirt from the carpet so there's no drifting around corners after a few rounds

http://www.rcmart.com/mini-radial-pr...?cPath=35_1086

Anyone knows where to buy them?


Or if the Pit Shimizus are equally?
