Yep I believe that is correct.

I think the idea is to keep mini class different, if you allow touring car shells to run then it becomes just a touring car class so why bother having it. There are already 5 other classes catering for that.

I would never run a tc shell in mini class because as you said there are 5 other classes for that

I had a competition yesterday in our Belgian Tamiya Competition. Everybody had problems with rear traction (also other classes) ... I ended up with M-grips in the front and S-grips on the rear and that worked just fine.
thanks a lot sir... another question.. how about The 60D SLICK tires? do they have better grips than the S tires?

bam, tire grip depends on surface. asphalt usually A, S, M. carpet usually M, S, A. but if you can get good handling with S, better as wear is good. type A do not last long on asphalt/concrete.

well, there you go, ... proves you really have to test.
I also tried the A-slicks this weekend, and the S-grips still performed better on the carpet.

One thing I know for sure: on asfalt, when raining: best tyres are brand-new A-slicks (they may never have been treated with additive.)
I do not know why. I should have thought the M and S-grip who have some profile, should perform better on moist surface.
But it was a trick a well-experienced Tamiya-pilot told me and it really works.

Does this fit the M03? Feral batts says yes (According to RC-MINI.net) but ABC say no

ABC said the Sunny Pickup and the Mini Pickup didnt fit either, and we proved them wrong on those as well!

Guys,
Which inserts goes well with the S-grip and M-grips? the Tamiya black sponge hard one?

edit: searched more throughly, looks like the 60D insert and a cut up touring car insert.

How do the S and M grip stack up against X-patterns for asphalt, in terms of handling and durability?

So does that means it fits?
