Default Hubs

I've used these and they work well and don't bend as easily as the stock hubs but I like to use a sway bar on my M03's so I went aluminum. Hubs from a TA02 might fit. I think they might be the same.
Thanks for the info.Mario

i got mine from merto hobbies , but that was a while ago. Drop pete an email he should be able to tell you were he got them from.
www.metrohobby.com.au They were about $20 a pair with inserts. But theres nothing better than HPI's. You should be able to them easily in Sydney.

-------------------
That setup guide is pretty good. I am really addicted to these little cars. not playing with my others for 5 years or so these mini's have really gotten me back in the hobby. I can't believe how buch I have dumped into them in 2 weeks. Found out with a little online research why the m-01 is so much faster than the m-03
M-01 gear ratio 2.4375
M-03 gear ratio 3.134
this would shurly make the difference.
-------------------


This is just an additional info about the gear ratio of M03 which one of the Tamiya tech gave me a long time ago. I found it on my old hard drive.

Spur 37T / Pinion 20T = 1.85
Differential 39T / Spur 'Low' 21T = 1.85715
Counter Gear 'Hi' 27T / Counter Gear 'Low' = 1.6875

Multiply the results and it will give you = FDR 5.79:1 or rounded 5.8:1

To get the 'internal gear ratio' :
1.85715 X 1.6875 = 3.1339

from Spur/pinion of 1.85 X 3.1339 = FDR 5.79:1 or rounded 5.8:1

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Take on eBay the ToBee gears for the M03 ... you can go as long as 4.63 !

With a the 34T spoor you will have a quite nice choise of gear for 27T motors:
23T -> 4.63
21T -> 5.07
19T -> 5.61

With a 23T pinion and a silver stock tamiya motor the mini should be flying

2 ways i know of.
1]. only put 1 motor mount screw in and push the motor over till you get the gears to mesh well.
2]. From what I've been told for a 21 pinion put the motor in the 20 hole and drive the car for a while, after a while the gearboxs frees up and it works fine.

But i would not recommend it for racing. Because of a little thing called rules. In Melbourne (Australia) the rules are for Mini you have run the car how it was designed eg. 20 ,18 ,16 pinion. But if your bashing around in the street no probs.

Simple you need the 34T spoor gear from tobee.
Stock spoor gear is 37T, this means the 20/18/16 holes could be used for the 23/21/19T pinion.
Clearly this is now allowed in TCS racing ... but where is allowed in the stock class make the M03 much faster!
