Seems that hardly a month goes by without Team Atlas releasing yet another super-cool 'vintage' shell for M chassis..

Check out this version of the awesome Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo.

Question regarding rims for the M03. How is everybody's experience with the rims from Cross and/or 3 Racing? I see that they are priced per 8 pcs at a price similar to other manufacturers rims for 4 pcs, or even 2 pcs in some cases. Is this a "you get what you pay for" thing? I'm looking to run my M03 on a carpet track and figure on doing a little experimentation with tires so saving a little on rims until I get that "magic" set-up down is a nice thing.

The 3Racing wheels are a good deal. They hold up well and seem quite durable.

This should fit the M-04 and probably now the M-05 too but there's absolutely no chance this will fit an M-03.

Old Tech,

I have not experienced any problems with the Cross rims or tyres. However for carpet I have used the Tamiya M Grips, kit tyres or S grips. The HPI M tyres work also on the front but have a smaller diameter.

For asphelt the Cross tyres and rims work very well on the rear of the car. I do not use the foam insert, but replace this with a spice 5.5mm insert.

Regards,

Calvin.

other than the new reedy sport pack lipos, what other hard case brands can fit the M03 with no modifications?

Thanks for the info.
My friend told me that the YeahRacing 3600mah won't fit in the mini. But the dimensions are pretty much that same from the 3200. How true is this?
