Or use some heatshrink over the joint if space allows.

Has this happened to anybody else or is this a once in a lifetime thing ?
(Or to rephrase - would this be the moment to buy the aluminum upgrade ? )
It happened to my son's car. I just replaced the rear upright with a new plastic one as it would almost certainly happen again at some point (the only aluminium on my M05 is the steering linkage).

Hi all,

Did anyone save the info from rc-mini.net before the site was taken down? It was good stuff and I'd love to find a copy.

Hi guys,

I'm considering an M-05, plenty of info here, but I have one question. I do not want the Pro II. I have all hop ups to make the regular 5 into a Pro II. But can I buy the central chassis parts of the Pro II and fit them to a regular 5, so a hard case (not stick pack) lipo will fit? A Mini at Banzai doesn't brake the bank, and with this mod I'd be able to use my racing packs.

Cheers,

Hugo

In theory yes you can, but in reality the parts haven't been released yet. Someone here previously mentioned mid Nobember, but nothing yet. I also plan to change my 05 chassis.

Ah, that expains why I cannot find the manual on-line, yet, either.

Cheers,

Is this what you're looking for?

Yes, it is. Unfortunately, the A parts in that manual are not part numbered. They do seem interchangeble with the regular A parts, 51389, looking at the pictures...

[EDIT] I think the motor mount is different, too, since it's not part numbered in the V2 Pro manual [/EDIT]

Anyone tried (and succeeded) to just cut the regular M-05 chassis to fit a lipo??

Yes, motor mount mount is different. There is a ver2 motor mount. By the way, I'm looking for new shocks, will it be better to get the TRF short shocks or just get the mini shock #5400?

This has been discussed over and over again. The only changes made were the 'main' chassis, the motor mount and the arms (and their supporting parts: spacers, different hinge pin screws, etc). Almost every other item is the same, including the steering components and the part tree which includes the rear chassis upper support pieces. Sure, you can 'convert' with the parts. Do i think its worth the trouble: not really...

For those that are interested and want spares, the 7-digit spares for the chassis and arms are on our site. The official 5-digits spares and motor mount have yet to be released.

You can use the old motor mount. (Though you may need to leave out the 1.6mm spacer behind the spur) All you really need are the chassis parts, lower arms and rear hinge pins.

I'm hoping to see parts soon. I need spares!

EDIT: Chassis and other spares are showing up on rcmart, stellamodels and a few other sites now. Less than $9 for the A parts. Not bad!

Is there a source for the two long screws that hold the rear lower suspension to the chassis on the M03? (No idea what the right term for it is)

I ran my M03 in snow last winter and the snow + residual water for a full year ended up rusting both of my screws to the point of seizing the suspension. Even WD40 couldn't fix it. I can't seem to find a good source for replacements, and am feeling stupid for selling of my pair of spare chassis earlier this year.

Thanks for the help!
