Default MO4M

If any of you are running the mo4, I finally completed the final adjustments.
I have tha alfa body and it fits perfectly. the cars handles very nice, stabe and turns in good. because it is rear drive I probably could have gone with a standard steering servo but will use to the hi torq servo for now. I will test it out at the tamiya track this weekend.

It is very stable and has good speed w/ the stock johnson motor. I hope to match it up w/ some mo3's
I was very good about freeing up the ball bearings, stiffining up the front shocks, tires and took a little out of the stearing. No sway bars yet. may not need them.

I do agree that there are some important alum alloy parts in the M03R package like the servo mounts that are really useful to replace those plastic parts...

Found this site while looking around for a body. They have quite a few 12th scales that would fit a mini.

For this next one you could add a M03M and M03L center spacer to get the wheelbase right.

Must be TCS legal.
FYI - What I did to help with servo movement was to take my transponder and servo tape it to the top of the servo, pinching the transponder between the support posts. Seems to do a great job so far.

Default prices

I've been hearing from several guys here of how expensive Tamiya and in general RC stuff is in their countries. Is it true you guys in Australia might pay up to $USD60-70 for a mini body?!!? what are some other prices?
UK prices? US prices?

Heres a partial list of what we pay here:
Tamiya Mini rover body $30 and $33 for a swift.
Tamiya Sport tuned motor at most $20
M03 CVD $20
M03R $120
TA03 ball diff $21
M03 heat sink $13

Prices are maybe $2-$4 more here at least on Tower Hobbies.com. So local hobby shop maybe the same or lower than tower's.

I bought my black can motor from the lhs for $20.

Hoping to get my hand on one of your motors soon to

Default Monster M bodies

These Chevron Monster M knockoffs are also very popular here. The originals from Japan are impossible to get these days.
