Alot of ppl swap these 2 shafts for the Tamiya Carbon Fibre Shafts to save on a little rotating mass in the drivetrain.
the carbon shafts only save on overall weight as they don't rotate in the gearbox they just hold the bearings for the gears.

Default Good M URL

Not trying to post whore here, but I'm really getting into this little car. Are there any good M-chassis sites with pics or setups? All I've found are a few sites that list the Tamiya hop up's with part numbers.
You guys must get like an hour of run time with the silver can motor and 3300's. Can't wait to get mine.

This M chassis is normally used for Stock races ... so the quality of the battery packs is not as critical like in other races.

I would personally take some Bulk GP3300 packs ... or if you have surpluss cash get you the GP3700.

P.S: Here in Europe, Tamiya Stock Races are handled with HandOut Motor and HandOut Battery .... this should avoid advantages for people with expensive Motor/Battery ... but still charging/discharging properly a pack can make a visible difference !

Will 3700's fit? I just bought a new pack for my Mini, and I was afraid 3700's wouldn't fit, so I went with 3300's.

Yeah...I`m up for some new tires too, so what does everyone recommend?

I`m currently using HPI X Patterns that came with the car..do i just repace with X patterns or is there a better tire choice.

Cheers

If you want to make TCS races ... there are not much alternatives ... just Tamiya D60 Type A or S/M Grip D60.

If you are using for bash around ... I have found the Xpress Mini tire from rcmart quite cheap and already better then stock Mini tiries ... they are even little bit smaller in diameter ... that help on lower CofG, but reduce top speed.

If allowed you can also use standard 1/10 TC tires ... being bigger they will have a better top speed but also a worst CofG.

PS: Going to make soon a TCS races here in Europe ... very curios to see how I will compete my M03 in a quite fast track against TL01 and TT01 ... where TT01 are alllowed to use 27T pinion and 55T spoor ... quite unfear top speed compared to the M03 capability .... M03 is allowed to be as light as 1300g vs 1450g of TT01

Whats the diameter of mini 60D tires? I compared them to 1/10 touring car tires they're almost the same but touring car tires are lowprofile. Maybe the difference is only less than 2mm. I dont wana buy 60D type A anymore coz they're expensive and easily worn.

hpi body on tamiya mini..

Has anybody tried to put a hpi mini civic body on a tamiya m-04m chassis? They have the same wheelbase (225 mm). I want to try but hesitant to buy a body without references. Does anybody have pictures if you can? Thanks.
