The strength out weighs the weight
plus the M03R has lots of features you want or will upgrade to in the future

Default MO4L

Advice, someone is offering me a MO4L kit. But am not keen running a rear drive mchassis. Can I use the parts for spare for MO3M. I mean is it competible?

Thanks

Yes, the blue shocks are from the same mold as the CVA super mini dampers. TRF & CVA pistons are interchangeable. The CVA pistons have larger holes, which allows the shock oil to move faster(your TRF shocks won't feel so stiff with CVA pistons installed).

Everything on the M-04 except the main chassis, rear shock tower, body posts, front bumper, pinion gear & tie rod ball-connectors can be carried over to the M-03... they use the same B+C parts trees, and essentially the same metal parts bags. The one exception would be the rear wheel spindles on the BMW Z3 Roadster kit... it uses longer spindles & thicker wheel hubs to increase the rear width, and those would push the front wheels out too far, if used on a M-03.

Also, the M-04L VW Beetle kit uses the lightweight reinforced uprights that are standard on the M-03M, but all other M-04 kits use the old style uprights. Regardless, the complete hub carrier assemblies(C-hubs, king pins + smaller bearings) are interchangeable onto the older kits, and vice versa.

Thanks MEPs.

I also notice the FF02 chassis looks an exact replica of the M-03.

Not a replica, its the same chassis, only the centre extender piece is different, and it also uses TL01 arms etc..

Should have started a new topic--What(if any) differences are there between a box stock M03 Mini and the new Mini S?

Not really hard to work out.
The new 2006 cooper S is the same as the m03m swift so it'd have the new front end and the toe in rear uprights.

I'm sure its been asked a hundred times but whats the internal gear ratio of the M03 (I assume its the same for all 3 versions)

I'm going to have a little brushless fun with mine this weekend

The mini pick-up is very nice looking. Where do you get it from?

We have a couple of the exige controllers around the shop, but i need some wheel time with the Feiago controller so I was going to put that in with a 10.5 I have laying around the shop.

This is for no other reason other than its the only equipment I have laying around not already installed in something else.

I'm not a big fan of the Exige controller, at least not until they make some improvements on it. Even if it would only be used for Spec style mini cooper racing.

Default m03 upgrade

What are the part number I would need to convert a older m03 mini cooper to same specs/wheelbase/suspension as the m03m suzuki swift style.

Look like a chassis extension is needed and clearly the longer suzuki body.

Thanks for the help.

Cheers

Jamie
