Core .. do you actualy have a M05 kit to look at? It doesn't seem like it

The motor is covered by an additional 2mm !!!!!! hardly a cooling issue.

And the hole for the motor is the same size but has a slightly larger wrap on the leading edge but not a real lot.

I cannot understand why people put this rubbish on the threads without actually checking things properly. And yes I do have an M05

Wow...yes, I do have an M05 in front of me and we raced them 2 weeks ago. There is no question it is a slightly tighter rap and less of the motor is exposed. 2mm is 2mm...and when the difference between a motor running 155 deg f or 180 deg f is a lost race and a fried motor, 2mm makes a difference! When you race hot rodded silver cans every tiny bit makes a difference and running a fan is a must! So what may be a non issue for you can be an issue for others...you might take that into consideration before jumping on here and getting excited.

I have no intention of not racing the M05...it WILL be my main race car now. And I am sure we'll figure out a solution ourselves without much problem. The aluminum motor mount will likely help also. This car is better than the M03...and I in no way am trying to sway people away from it....the M05 is the future of mini!

hey buddy....my personal opinion, maybe due to the motor mounting position, may cause the motor to be more hotter than m03, that why if you notice the inner motor mount its a different piece(not same piece as gear casing of M03) which i think later will have option blue aluminium blink blink motor mount to cool it more...


cannon,

no offence,

i wonder you are always piss of when some others ask question?

what the purpose of this forum if question cannot be ask?

don like what others ask can just ignore.....

well you can make vents like this guy did in his M05. My motor temp did go down 5-10deg.

Mooshu Beef,

I like the concept of your teaching kids to race and what better car to use than a MO3. Tough as nails and require a bit more skill to punt around than a 4WD car.

Keep up the good work.

regards,

Calvin.

Sydewynder,

They can be purchased from the Rc mart, rc mushroom etc, or you can try Feral Batteries here in Australia, all on the internet.

We have them to be very relaible and quicker than a sport tuned. Minimal maintenance is a big bonus.

cheech&chong,

There are so many short wheel based after market bodies I can not even list them. A good starting point would be to go to www.rc-mini.net/ and go from there. The shops listed above have stock.

redbones,

In Japan you can obviously get away with major modifications to your mini. Here in Australia and USA, you can not make modifications to your chassis, otherwise you are Disqualified. I will stick to what is legal for us. I see no point in having two different cars, one for clubbies and one for events, when testing/driving are not the same. Seems counter productive to what you are trying to achieve.

My thoughts only. Each to there own. Here in Aust we can not even run a fan on our mini's, not that we have needed them. The Hobbywing 13T BL system works well and with the large cooling fins, seems to disapate the heat reasonably well. Although last weekend on the carpet after some long runs they were fairly warm.

Regards,

Calvin.

Ed,

Not pissed off at people asking questions .. just replies that are misleading or questions that have been asked two posts before and answered but the next poster is to lazy to look. The original reply gave the impression the motor is far more covered when in fact it is only covering an extra 2% of the can surface area ... hardly an issue. And from what I can tell the motor hole recess is exactly the same size in both cars.
