I am new to the Mini and will be racing (for fun) in the WCICS. They use TCS rules,Tamiya hop up's only, silver can motor, ect.
Can you help me with some tips? I have purchased bearings, ball diffs (both Manta and TAO3), 20 and 21T pinions, shock set # 53280 and the Hollow carbon gear shaft.
What more do I need?
I have the M-O4M Alfa Romeo and the M-O3 Mini Cooper. Is one better than the other?
Can I get a good set up for carpet for both?
What diff is better, Manta or TAO3?
What Tamiya tires and inserts should I buy?
What is the best way to run in the stock motor? Water dip? How long?
Sorry to be a pain! I know I could read 83 pages and get most of the info but I know Tamiya Guys are hardcore and will give me good advice!
