I thought that's what the bearing spacer was for! Is there a modern ball diff that will fit in this car?

I transfered my M03 shocks and did some ackermann changes. The box stock ackermann was not very aggressive during the turns. The car had a tail that was much more planted, less fighting with the car.

I'll get some indoor action with our car tonight but that wont tell us much....

I should fly up to Sing to test..
Indoor will be good too, to see the effects of traction roll. I am very interested in that actually.

OK I have been playing around with a rear diff from a Tamiya Dark Impact. The fit is almost correct. Obviously the plastic gear in the centre is wrong but a replacement gear for a 3 racing M chassis diff is a perfect fit. Now just need to find smaller diff balls to suit. The diff has a bit of left to right movement between the chassis halves but that may be able to be spaced out. If I can find something that is close with a first try there must be someone who can manage to find one even closer

TA03 ball diff works fine as per the M05 manual.

Forgive my ignorance but doesn't the TA-03 one fit?

Yes it does but Tamiya has designed the M05 to take a new diff that they are obviously going to release at some stage.

There is a good chance that Tamiya already has something that will fit that is a better and lighter diff than the TA03 diff

The TA03 diff is an old design , both poor quality and heavy. Imagine putting in a diff something like a TA05 or 416 diff. Lighter , spools up quicker etc etc

The fact that Tamiya is using a bearing carrier in the M05 shows they are ready to use a diff with the standard 15 x 10 diff support bearing

It would be nice to see a ball diff that you can adjust without having to take the chassis apart like you have to do with the TA-03 diff currently.
