Want to see some more of the M05? Of course you do.



Then click HERE to see where our good friend Nishinaga-san (of Grahoo fame) has posted some video taken at a Japanese track.

The car isn't running, but you get a good look at it. Check it out.

So if that is the final production version of the M-05 Pro, then it will come with alloy shocks (not the blue/clear plastic ones) & alloy front uprights? I was expecting to have to buy those parts as extras. I hope they do actually come in the kit.

Does anyone know the release date of the M-05 Pro? I understand the standard M-05 is due for the end of June (?), but none of the Hong Kong sites I've looked at have either verision listed yet. As I am in the UK, I am expecting to have to import one if I want it as soon as it's out, unless there is an (extremely unlikely) simultaneous worldwide release...

It appears that one has been further upgraded from the "pro" level. Tamiya did have a version at the trade show that showed just how far you could take it with their hop ups. This looks like that one did.

Yip the M05 in the vid is like the "FULL OPTION" version from the shizuoka show, I'm almost 100% that the production M05 Pro will come with the clear plastic shocks and plastic front uprights too.

I wish they took out the shocks and the alum upright and included the mini TRF shocks instead...

Would've been nicer if the rear squat was adjustable too.

But hey, I'm still getting one
