I use a front shock tower with the shock on the 2nd outer hole and on the rear 1 hole out from standard. I only fit my shocks to the standard positions.

I use a TOP racing oil gear diff with spacers to prevent side to side
I appreciate the advice.

While running the car tuesday, I tried a few radio tricks to try to get the thing to drive better. I first tried expo. Dialed it up to 20%. And it made the car a little less predictable.

That said, me, and expo, don't usually get along very well. I like linear responses from my inputs. (blame 30 years of non computer radios..) So I swapped it around to 80% travel, and no expo. That helped a lot.

I miss Grandpa on this forum too, Cal, but mostly I miss him sitting across the table from me on Saturday mornings at Tamiya, with all his lively kibitzing and comments, donut crumbs dribbling from the corner of his mouth. We have a plaque, "Grandpa's corner", complete with a wreath of dusty plastic flowers, to remind us where he liked to crash. Life's short guys... enjoy.

Lagua! I never met the Gentleman in person, but we talked a couple of times
on the telephone and numerous emails from here!!! He was extremely generous in his knowledge and life in general in helping out both myself and
my Son (Golddust) with numerous car troubles! I sure wish Team Golddust Racing could have raced against Bob!!!

If you have the post supports reversed, that could happen. I think. A picture would help a lot.

Does anyone happen to know the outside diameter of a TA06 rear diff? I've got some nerding out I need to do.

EDIT: Never mind. Found a lovely side by side photo from the very forum dating to 2013! R/C Tech Forums - View Single Post - Tamiya mini cooper Different pitch, different size.

And...

Nothing better than going to his house and working on motors or having a smoke with him at the track and discussing set ups and sometimes he would come over to my pit reach over and just grab a smoke out of my box without asking and I wouldn't say a word but just smile.

I miss the exchange of thoughts we had regarding mini setups in general and some of the enlightening statements that were posted in this thread. I really appreciated the information I learnt and then tested. Not all was ever shared here, but then that would take away the mystique of working somethings out for yourself.
I am sure he still rolls his eyes at some of the antics on here. May he rest in peace. Might be gone, but never forgotten.

Does anyone have a parts list for the TA03 Ball diff, part #53267?

I am looking for the part # for a replacement ball diff gear.

Thanks!

50704 is the closest you will get to getting that gear separately.

Why did tamiya add the boxy protrusion at the rear end of m05 chassis? My m05 is built in short wheelbase, and it's sticking out far enough to interfere with the body.

It's for the droop screws with the v2 arms. If your rules allow it (or you're not racing), feel free to cut it off with a hacksaw. It's disappointing that Tamiya didn't check if it would interfere with the Mini Cooper bodies.
