Since a couple of months one of the top guys has been qualifying (5min hits) 3 more laps than the rest of the field and wining the A main (20 min) by more than 5 laps.
Iíve noticed he lowered the ride height, but he sling shots out of the curves in a way no one of us has been able to emulate,
M03`s have a tendency to spin the tires on acceleration HOW DO I CURE THIS?? (tire incerts, diff, dogbones, ride height)
Tire is the 1st, damper shock set is the 2nd and radio system setting is the 3rd important thing for m-class (remember it's 2WD) .... You have to get some more experience combining those 3 things 'cause racing is mostly depend on the track and environment factors .....

A racer at my track bought some mini GP30s and gp36s. I'm pretty sure he didn't like the 36s but after scrubbing in the 30s, he likes them and I'm pretty sure that's what he is running now. He posts here so he can probably give you a more detailed answer. Look for a post from SteveM.

I'm pretty sure all Tamiya diff balls are 3mm.

Not sure if anyone in the US carries them. I usually would have to order from Hong Kong. Dinball at RCmart.com has the bodies not sure about Whizzie hop-ups though.

most of the important "Whizzie" hop-ups (i guess this is the word we're using now) are available at towerhobbies.com

Just tested my Team Orion carbon 3200 lipo battery in my mini. Great power and can really feel the difference accelerating out of the corners! its really light, however, and traction rolled and spun out frequently. Its less than half the weight of an IB4200 stick pack and equal power right through out the race. At 7.4V you can really feel the extra power. It takes getting use to but i think extra weights are in order. The Novak smart cutoff worked perfectly too. Though i left the Novak cutoff on top of the back half of chassis I managed to get all the other electronics in the chassis. Plus it emits a red light which caught the attention of the other drivers!

I run the RP30's on the rear of my mini, haven't tried them on the front (rollout reasons). Great little tire though! Just make sure the track is pretty clean though, they don't like a dirty track. If you have dust/etc... on the track I'd suggest using the HPI X-patterns.
