well.. I've gone and done it now.

Just purchased a M03-R, with a Swift bodyshell..... what have I got myself into

Bit different to my other cars (fairly serious racers) but wanted something that I can have a laugh with, and look good.

Have to say cheers to the guys at rc-mini, some very useful info on the site. Just a shame I can't seem to find any X-patterns anywhere....

Still looking forward to building the little pocket rocket now.

One other random Q, Anyone know what the motor limit of the Tamiya ESC is?

Cheers
Ed

I've got lots of x-patterns Ed.... But they not be for sale.

Sadly they aren't being made any more, which is a damn pity.

My personal current favourites are Rides but they aren't all that easy to get hold of either.

I install the diff so that the nylon gear part of the diff is in the right hand side of the chassis.

So far my diff has never come loose in 8 years


Same for me... We have a sneaking suspicion (unproven as yet) that if you put the diff in the 'wrong way around' (i.e. with the gear on the l/hand side) then that tends to promote loosening.
I cant recall any of us at rc-mini having had a diff come loose for at least 5-6 years, maybe longer.
I remember putting the TA03 diff that way (to the right, if you mean right from looking from the rear of the vehicle) and it would be locked up almost like a spool for three races, then would come loose. Or am I look at things the wrong way here?

1) Clean threads on both diff bolt and housing
2) Apply Shoo-Goo or Rubber (contact) Cement
3) Install diff bolt and tighten.

No more loosey.

Ive actually had good luck with blue locktight. Just make sure the threads are clean and don't use too much and everything works out fine. I use aerocar grease on the diff parts with good results but most of the guys around here stick with the Tamiya antiwear grease. I had issues with the 03 diff at first but after I got a feel for the setting and started to use the locktight things have been just fine.

Does anyone have the part number for the Tamiya 0 degree rear hub to suit the M03? All I can find is part numbers for 3 Racing aluminium part, but want the Tamiya plastic one.
