Also on the rear looks like a blue aluminum upper arm inner pivot ball??? maybe an adjustable rear camber link?

Default M04m

For the experienced M04m tuners:

Just dusted mine off from last summer's racing. With a Johnson 540 motor do you prefer using the Heatsink or leave it off? Reason being is that it is a whole lot of weight on one side of the chassis.

And has anyone tried to put the chassis on 4 scales(one on each tire) ? If so what have you found?

thanks for any info

Bought and built my first mini.
Now I see why these are so popular!
This thing rocks.
Heres some pics.
Props to www.celphdesigns.com for the wicked paint job.

I don't like to add any extra weight. So I don't run a heat sink when I run only 5 minute heats.

As for the weight for the motor I usually end up with about 1mm more spring preload on the left rear shock, to compemsate. (Depends on the spring.)

Heck with the body
the body will be ok once the chassis gets an altitude adjustment.
