This is a TCS question, but I'm going to ask it here because it can't be original.

Assuming I don't use HPI spacers and use all Tamiya parts, can I do this?



The offset of the part is the same, only difference is one isn't made of brass.

That is ok to do, that's how I had mine (only with tamiya spacers) and it past tech.

Voodoo,

In opinion the body handled fine. Only thing I disliked about it was it doesn't Marshall itself. I tend to hit a lot of dots and barriers with the swift, LWB mini and SWB mini they tend to roll back over on its wheels or side (turn the wheel a few times and you Marshall yourself. The crx has a flatter roof so your stuck waiting for someone to flip you over.

Anyone know how to get the m03 rear anti-roll bar to fit an m04? I've seen a picture or two, but they were too blurry to be useful.

Been using the Friction shocks will the tuned springs work on them?
or do i have to do a oil-filled set up to use the rest of those optional shocks?

The springs will fit.

Which version of the friction shocks are you using? There are the old ones that used a piece of rubber tubing over the damper rod and there are the snap together "spring holders" supplied with current (2009-) kits.

The older version can be made to work okay with a little ingenuity. The current ones are...spring holders.

The 2009- kits snap together.

Just did a test fit and no, the rear bumper hits the two motor support rings. Only way it will work is if you hacked up the center of the rear bumper for clearance.

I REALLY like that motor/esc combo. Fast for a mini and always runs cool.

Got my M05 up and running for the most part. Still need a battery, and do a lot of testing/tuning. Got a few months to get it sorted out.
