I recently purchased a second hand MO3 with some basic hop ups, but do you think I could stop there?.....no sir being who I am had to keep going, but lovin it!!
Mind you this car was purchased to start my 10 y.o son off in r/c cars, and I'm the one getting carried away
I have most of the hop ups but no ball diff just the standard gear set up.
Also dont have heat sink, I wonder if it really helps
Other things I have are:-
Carbon gear shafts (homemade with lathe)
6mm hex nuts (metal)
Toe in rear up rights
Super CVA mini shocks and lowered sport springs (3 holes all round. 70wt front yellow spring and 40wt rear red spring. Front ride height 4mm and rear 4.5mm approx. I like the fact that these shocks are plastic and lighter)
HPI x pattern tyres
540 sports tuned motor
Stabilizer medium (front and rear)
Tamiya ESC standard electronic (forget the model number)
Quick release battery holder (homemade)
I have shimmed the suspension, wheels etc, to remove the play but canít seem to totally eliminate it all, and tightened up the steering with a drop of cyno here and there and that fixed that problem. Still have to set up best toe layout.
Could you guys give me some feed back on the things I still need to do to improve on, you could say I want my son to have the best possible start, with of course his dads help...lol.
Any other tips I have overlooked would be appreciated also.
