I am only putting on the 2 deg. toe rear uprights on my M03... So I just need 4 bearings for the inside and outside of the axles.

But jezzz.. now I am going to have to have bearings for each hub setup.. MINIS are supposed to be simple.. easy to work on.. this is OUT OF HAND!!!

OH well S$%T happens.

If you're only doing the toe-in rear uprights James then you probably should have opted for the original (53345) items as opposed to the M03M ones. 53345 uses the normal size bearings......

Default rubber carpet setup

Anyone have a rubber / carpet set they can help me with?I don't want to run foams and I know maybe some of the trackside our Midwest guys should have something to share in regard to setup. Thanks in advance.

What my carpet foam setup isn't good enough for you John?

Use the USA HPI X patterns right Tony.

I'll let you know how it goes with RP30s

Thats the problem willy,its almost too good with foams.I want a more realistic Mini experience! Not a 12th scale with a mini body.

I know there is a tamiya tire combo that works a trick if I could just find it.

We've only ever run on carpet a few times and we used Tamiya M grip normal radials (kit tires) with some success.. However I hasten to add that our experience on carpet is very limited...

But my experience with evil USA X patterns is extensive! Hee hee..

Default F parts tree from the Swift/M-03M kit

I've looked for the F parts tree (uprights, c hubs, rear hubs and medium chassis extension) for the Swift/M-03M everywhere and can't find one. Does anybody know of a place with some in stock?
