Ya big show off!

I think I might just put my stock Tamiya ESC back in the car, and continue losing races in an affordable manner.

I have found that there is nothing different other than a couple bits of alloy, diff grease is different, slightly different rear suspension and bearings

Should handle almost the same except the R will have a small slight edge due to oil shocks vs friction shocks.

I'm not a M03 experts but I did notice a couple of things...

1) the front alloy uprights have a 3rd hole for the steering linkages, I'm not sure but I think it gives more Ackerman. Also the potential steering throw seems more because the linkage do not hit against the side of the gearbox.

2) Rear alloy uprights has additional hole, though I think it is not used. Could be an additional tuning option.

The M-03R is nothing more than an M-03, with oil shocks and a few bits of bling.

It is nice that it comes with toe in rear uprights and such, but you can get most of that stuff in the Swift kit.

There are no real changes in handling or geometry.

I think not Jeff.... They're allowing 4WD Minis as well so the M03's will get slaughtered..
As Cal will tell you, that's a super high-grip track, so keeping an M03 on its wheels will be hard enough as it is, let alone contending with 4WD cars as well.
