Can't remember what I wanted. Could've been green alloy bits or possibly that mini carrier bag they did. One way or the other, no dice.
Yeah, Venom is kinda more of a big distributor of all sorts.

Let us know next time and who knows, maybe we can help?

One thing I've used is chewed chewing gum. Some of the stuff that is "long lasting" or known for not turning to chalk after chewing it after a few minutes. It'll get pliable with heat, but isn't goopy, and isn't 100% solid when colliding with other objects on the track.

Did this successfully with my M03 and a new diff. I don't race much, but it did lock it up very well. Had good success with Trident brand (Because that is what my wife chews)

If you're going to do this, don't try a race with fresh gum. Let it sit for a little while (6+ hours) for very solid gearbox. You can run it for a short while to get the gum in the whole set of gears, but running a race with fresh gum will not go well. It likes to escape into the rest of the gearbox.

Try pieces of silicone fuel line or cut up some earplugs.

So on the subject of HPI Mazda MX5 shells. We had a big problem with getting these shells in the UK. Well we thought we had a problem. Everyone was saying they don't make them any more. But a chance chat with a "at track shop" they said they would ask The HPI distributor and if they still had them showing stock we could have them. That's what we did and they did have them. Hence the availability of MX5 shells. This is also the case with the Honda Civic 225mm shell. Now to Monkey racing's paint job. This was done by a chap at our local club in the UK. He is a novice and is getting better all the time. I will try and find his web site address and will post on here next week when I'm back in the UK. He is truley a talented painter that does it just for fun. He would paint you one if you pay for the shell, the paint work and of course shipping. As I said I will put his web site up next week for you to see his other shells.

Seriously. The pictures don't do it justice. There's a cool colour shifting effect in the "honeycomb" bits. Plus, there's a monkey on it. Win!

Hi, I'm building a M03 reversed (RWD). The wheelbase is 210mm. I was looking at the HPI #7211 Porsche body, but I don't know if it will fit properly. I'm open to suggestions for other 210mm bodies if the Porsche is a no go. Thanks, Don
I have the Porsche body and an M05, wheelbase is not an issue. I believe there would be no issue w/ the M03 ...my ONLY concern would be the front shocks towers being too tall on the M03?? ...for the HPI Cup Racer (which that Porsche body was made for) the front shocks are in a "lay-down" format to accommodate the lower front end of the Porsche body.

I can verify for you tonight ...going to a friend's house who has an M03 ..will bring my Porsche body and will give more details on fitment.
