That will probably come with the plastic friction dampers. They can be made to work. Just look at the m-03 buildup on rc-mini.net

The next step up would be the Tamiya Super Mini CVA shocks. They're plastic as well, but they're very good considering.

If you really want to spend money for a little flash, then the 3Racing alloy mini shocks are a good deal.

Rumoured for months and months, but apparently now finally confirmed. The absolute BEST Mini tyres ever are now back in production.



Pit Shimizu mini tyres available again soon, in 24, 27 and 30 compound. Don't ask when /where, we don't know yet.
But if they're as good as they used to be we can't wait.

Never used them since they weren't ever available around here to start with but sounds like they are the biznizz. Are they also of the 55mm diameter variety or are they 60mm?

Definitely 55mm od. But just fantastic tyres. Last forever, and bags of grip, but not traction-rolly grip.

I still have some of the originals but have been reluctant to use them up.

Anyone know if the Xpress 3200mah 20C lipo fits the M03?

Does anyone else know which lipo's DO fit the M03? I know the Orion 2400 & 3200 plus the Yeah racing 3200's fit Is there any list around with what does fit?

Cheers
Lee

4WD mini? Seems the wheelbase and width will allow it to run the Tamiya mini bodies.

Much prefer the look of ^^^ that ^^^one compaired to the fwd one in reply 8256

The one in the link above looks like it has a lower centre of gravity than the other one and more roomy.....plus it looks like you have 2 cars in one

Certainly it's bang on the money for M chassis size specs for both SWB and MWB.



And HPI are saying that they're doing a full range of bodyshells as well. Although the wider ones could be a problem. This could be interesting. With the Switch FWD and now this car, seems there is a big HPI M chassis push.
