Has anyone tried running 4 cells on the Tamiya cooper M03?

I just got my Mini Cooper and am trying to figure out what brushless to get with a 4 cell (I am carrying it over from my 1/12 scale).

Any suggestions will be welcomed.

Any US based shops have RP36's in or coming in soon? Also do the different brand of rims have different off-sets? I've got HPI rims on my car now but they are just a hair wider then I'd like.

Thanks for the compliment!

I also believe that the weight of the chassis is alot lighter then it's Tamiya or HPI counterparts.. will be posting it's weight after i've found my weighing scale!

Will also be posting pictures after I get it painted(Red with white top)

Default Aluminium Knuckles

I picked up a set of aluminium steering knuckles since my kids
strip out the plastic ones. What I find out though is that the aluminium
ones don't fit the mo3m. Is there any way to get these to work with the
mo3m or am I going to have to machine them down ?

Hi Edwin,
6mins is very short time. Did you check the lipo pack voltage after the 6mins run?

You bought the ones for the M03 SWB/LWB , and they wont fit the M03M. The only aluminium ones that will fit the M03M are the 49441 units off the M03R.
I'd just buy a replacement set of plastic ones (51238) as they are pretty damn strong and it's rare to destroy them.
Maybe sell off the others to someone else...

...or you could buy the parts tree that has the front uprights on it: B parts #50736 and the front kingpins, which are 4 X 11.5 mm step screws- kinda the same as the old FF01-TA01/2 kingpins. Might be easier to just find the ones from the 03R that fit what you've got, but you'll also need the bushings and screws that mate up with the M uprights, as I'm not sure that the TA04 style kingpins will fit the alloy carriers.

BTW, some people think the older front end is easier to drive.
