Been out of the mini Racing for a while, I need to know if I can update my M05 Pro to a version II to be able to use the square packs?
If so what parts do I need to order?

Thanks guys

You will be able to, but the parts aren't available yet.

I have not done it, but believe at minimum a new chassis and battery holder (end pieces) would be needed. I believe that all the other parts are similar. The motor location is different (slightly), so not sure how this may effect anything during a conversion.

You could be a guinea pig? A new chassis has got to be $15 or less.

Where to buy a KO VFS-1 Competition v3 or a LRP Competition Quantum 3 best? Didn't find any here in Europe...

The a parts and L parts are released O/S for the MO5 V2. I have them coming and the chassis is black plastic, no idea on the internal spacer for the spur gear, new alloy motor plate or the longer rear inner arm bolts.

The L parts are the new arms. An option if you can get the new chassis and arms would be to use the arms without the droop attachment on the rear and use normal length 56.5mm shocks.

Calvin.

Maybe a little early to ask, but will the M-03 still be a legal chassis for TCS racing for the 2015 season? AFAIK, there are no longer any current M-03 kits being manufactured. I have two that are still in the box, and the last time I drove an M-05 and an M-03 back to back, I preferred the M-03--esp. the long wheelbase configuration.

I've heard yes and no, but the last I heard from those "in the know" is that it WILL be legal next year. Seems like the question was parts availability, which I assume won't be a problem. One more year with my trusty ol' M03 it seems!

Two questions:

What/who is "Stargek"?

Are there official part numbers?

Cheers!

Hello Jim,

The parts are coming from Singapore and I am waiting for them to arrive. Hopefully then can give you the part numbers. Stargek are the Tamiya distributers in Singapore.

Calvin.

Btw,

A friend in Singapore sent the rules for the TAC race in the Phillipines and the MO5 V2 is not eligible to run. Only chassis allowed are MO5, MO5 Pro, MO6 and MO6 Pro.

This was already amended. The V2 is already allowed.

Thanks Cal. It would be nice to see them get real website and online presence. Having another source for stuff is always welcome. The social media approach is limiting.

Looking forward to having part numbers and spares. Working without a back-up plan just isn't me!

A few weeks ago I posted about having trouble with my diff being noisy. Since then I have installed a gear diff and it is much much quieter and really improves the driving.

I have also replaced the rear hub knuckles because I bent one, but now my handling is not very good. I used the yeah racing -2' knuckle but I am finding that the rear of the car bounces/skips through the corners. This is them http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/400570327...84.m1497.l2649

How should I set the roll/camber?


Cheers
Ryan
