hi buddy,

i am no expert of this FUN mini, but i did have a hell of a time to figure what fit what...basically i found out that M03 and M03M/M03L and a bit different interm of front and rear upright,

M03 front upright & front c hub can also be use on a TL01, which means it a m03 upright its taller compare to a M03m upright(M03M same with M03L)

due to the different in the upright, there for the c hubs , king pin and inner bearing will be different.

so when buying after market alu upright, please make sure its for m03m, if you bought a m03 upright to fit a m03m, than it won't fit, unless you get a mo3 c hub...

please refer photo attach, hopes this helps....

TK

tried mine with the sport tuned motor (with no voltage cutoff limiter). 15 minute run time +/- shouldnt be a problem and it is within the prescribed cut-off voltage (6.0V)

if u r still running the short wheelbase on asphalt/tarmac, stick to it...plenty more to tune and the car is nimble and fun to watch i run using sorex in the rear and foam for the front. the aluminium damper helps too.

dynodan22 - I haven't checked. but 3racing and other after market companies may make aluminum knuckles for the m03m. But, if they are running the TCS they wouldn't be legal.

Thanks MD
Yes it was my own fault I should looked them up. I am using a plastic replacement set for now. I like the blue anodize aluminium pcs.
I am not worried about TCS, I neither have the driver skills or the
higher RPM motors red dots to run. I also refuse to by another can motor
when this one runs just fine. I tried Mini at Trackside, I liked it but have
to many other commiments on that days that it runs and I am more of an offroad guy I like the rally car by tamiya but they only seem to run
during TCS and thats it oh well , any day rc'ing is better day than working.

dynodan - I think the minis are a lot of fun. We're trying to get a class at our local parking lot races for the rest of the summer. None of us have invested a lot of time or money into our cars. I think these cars are a great for a low budget, sportsman,, whatever you want to call it class. They are reasonable in price and you can find some inexpensive aluminum parts and hop ups on Ebay. This RC Tech thread is excellent. The people who contribute on this thread have great knowledge, and are very enthusiastic.

i would say grip wise its ok must better than yeah racing rubber, wear rate its also a bit on the high side, or at least that what i tot, i did not measure, but i guess the wear rate its about the same as those yeah rubber, i guess i can finish 1 pair with 2 lipo battery, maybe too much wheel spin,

any can suggest on cva shocks? i am now using cva with trinity 40 oil with trf 2 hole damper disc, i found too bumpy....should use 3 hole disc or change to lighter oil? spring blue front. yellow rear

Plenty of Spice 36R slicks available in Australia. Geta bulk order together to reduce the freight costs

Earlier today I couldn't find Mini tires on their site but I've found them now. They list the RP 36's in stock as well...is that accurate? How are the spice tires compared to the RPs?

Also I'm running the HPI rims right now but their off-set is a bit wider then I want...are other brands different off-sets or are they all pretty much the same?

How good is chrome paint for those little fiddly trim bits eh Jeff?

It's the details that make a good job.
