True, but the reason the Mabuchi 540 has survived as long as it has probably has little to do with the RC hobby. The fact is that the 540 sealed can motors have been and continue to be used in a wide variety of products: cosmetic, power tools, toys, automotive, industrial, medical, vacuum cleaners...they're making millions upon millions of those motors every year. Heck, Mabuchi's minimum order is between 20,000 and 100,00 units depending on the client.

If the company that makes motors for Hobbywing can start delving into the same markets, then they'll have a truly sustainable long term product.

Speaking of that, does anyone happen to know who actually manufactures the motors for Hobbywing? I would assume it's a Chinese contractor.

Hey all,

I m about to start building my M05 Pro and was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a stainless hex screw kit for this?

Does it even exist yet?

Thanks.

Yeah, I'd be expecting a few more ball connectors..

Plus I always thought the front link was way too short to have this style of arm.

Maybe the extras are spare steering links instead? They provide quite a few spacers in that kit..

At the Tamiya NATS a little birdie told me there are some new parts coming out for the M05...aluminum motor plate, aluminum steering, adjustable front camber links...oh and I got a peek at a soon to be released (1-2 months) new race version Fiat body that has been extremely re-worked. It's very cool!! Lets just say it will have lots of steering!

The motor mount could be a bit better dispersing heat than the heatsinks from the M03/M04.. I was surprised they don't have a bit of it extending upwards out of the chassis, could attach a fan or something to disperse the heat.. not that silver cans can't take the heat in an enduro..

I don't quite get the "reinforced" axles.. they look normal to me, and how much harder can you make steel? If it bends, so be it.. just don't hit things so hard next time..

I'd be more interested in a Alu/CF/Bearing mounted steering arm set, like the TA05..

Those two holes on the upper left of the picture are not on the stock plastic piece...so they have something else planned.

Maybe something similar to the heatsinks from the DF-03 buggy which screw on to the motor mount.

Core Creations,

The re-worked Fiat body sounds interesting especially with increased steering. I will be glad to see the finished product.

I think the MO5 has more than sufficient steering already. Most of us are trying to get rid of steering.

These Tamiya parts are not released until 17 Sep in Japan.

Regards,

Calvin.

It's my understanding that Champ sells alot of their products. Is there any other places that are good?

Thanks
Scrib,

I got mine by searching for the Square part numbers on Ebay...

What kind of parts are you guys trying to get from Square besides the axles? Anything interesting? Anything not provided by other manufacturers? Jim wants more bling!
