I'm more interested in the leap of logic

i.e. Small and Slow = Gay

Now run that one past me again Mr Cracker? Oh sorry, you can't because your account has been suspended I see.

But thats the good thing about the net, it allows people with minimal brain power to waste it for our amusement....

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!
Thanks
Rod

TA03 diff is the one to use Rod.

And Bruce, some more manuals here : http://www.tamiyaclub.com/manuals.asp
Under the drop down, there is a mini one and I'm sure some others as well.
