The Reedy seems to offer the best balance between torque and rpm. Not sure if this is the absolute best, but its just opinion at this stage. Just came back from the TCS race at Horsham this past weekend and although happy with the results, disappointed I did not get to practice earlier switching from my M05 to M03 and not getting to fully test all the motors I have. Planning on a practice weekend in a few weeks to further weed out the best motor for my driving style.

On a separate note, I know we're all expected to run blinky mode. So i purchased a hobby wing just stock speedo for the M03. Does anyone have any experience with this speedo and how does it compare to a tekin rs? other than the price! I still wish Tamiya would release a spec motor and speedo
Carl, I run a HW in my F1 and it works well. That said, I needed to update the firmware and pick up a programmer to get the most out of it. Once completed, the ESC performs very well.

Carl, this is where I got mine. http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/tami...yaMChassis.htm

Out of town working right now and the laptop is at home. Otherwise I would offer up the one I have on it.

As far as motors go I run the Revtech Killshot Rpm 21.5 in my mini and it puts out well to me. I also use the hw justock esc in my mini and gt3 car. Have no complaints but as stated the programming box is a huge plus when making changes.

Just curious.. What good is the program box if you have to run blinky mode? I thought the whole point was that you couldn't dig into the speedo. Isn't blinky mode supposed to be all pre-set end points?

It allows for fine tuning of neutral, minimum throttle, brake etc. (timing/boost will not change as it is locked in spec mode).

Greetings. Hey Fresnojay, thank you for postin' the link to petitrc-I'd just built my first M05!(kinda had fun buildin' it till i'd got to the rear suspension- s,m, & l -arms in the wrong direction) I wish i'd had bearings before building it.

Not sure, but won't even be close to what you wanna run in an M05. Not sure about M06...

I recall the stock stuff being pretty thin. Maybe around 40wt.

Hi Justin,
stock oil of the 3-Racing diff is "2000", probably cst.
But it feels stiffer in the beginning, as the 3R needs quite a good time to run in properly. For my M06 I started with 1000 in new condition, and changed later to 2000.
Last race I run with another M06 very competitive, he even used 10000cst, he admitted after the Race. (this was on a medium grip carpet).

I think its no problem if you start with 10.000 in your M05 to find your preferences.

Br,
Matthias

First outing with the HW Justock at my local every Saturday MMafia Nats. Quite please with the speedo. Hard to justify the $100+ difference of the Tekin in my other cars.

Looking forward to running my new Tekin FX-R pro in my silvercan M05 tonight. First indication on th bench is that has a slightly higher pitch at top speed. The only thing I'll have to try and avoid is crashing as the reverse seems to take ages to engage Maybe with the hotwire I can reduce this delay?

Re the 3 Racing diff questions, I fitted my 3 Racing diff with 5,000cst oil from the begining for around 6 months sometimes racing twice a week without any problems. No leaks, still feels as tight as when I fitted it. Good product

Has anyone been running the Blitz Racing shells? I'm looking for opinions, specifically on the Jazz and the GTI.

I've got an RS1 in the 1mm thickness. I love the weight and durability of the thing. I know I'm not going to win an A main anytime, so I may as well have fun and try to make my equipment last. It's hard to tell if it's a stable shell, as I've been running it on my M04. There's not much that can make that go in a straight line.

Other than that, I like the shell. It looks kind of mean.

The GTI is smaller and maybe a bit faster overall. The Jazz is taller and maybe has relatively more steering. This is with the wings attached. GTI I found to be very unstable without the wing, so I never tried the Jazz without it.
