I think your answer is neither of those..

It'll be a one-piece diff when assembled, no drive cups that notch into the ends like the older diffs did.

With the window tint removed and better offset wheels (adding spacers), it will look nicer.

Built per box instructions work very well, as a starting point.

I think I have 60w in mine for the carpet, and stiffer springs, from the box settings

Does anyone have the part number for the heat sinks that mount to the new M-05 aluminum motor plate?

It's the Xevo M03/05 conversion. What's it like? You better believe you'll want one...



Check out the story HERE about this innovative new M chassis racer.

And find out how Tim made a SWB/MWB kit into a LWB one as well!

One more question guys sorry. With the M-chassis oil dampers it says to put a o-ring under the piston. Are you guys leaving it out? My chassis sits at arms level but now the body is to high and the battery wires are hanging out of the side below the body.

Great article Tim and TFG on the Xevo. Sounds like it is a great conversion and even better to drive.

Hope to have one going soon.

Regards,

Calvin.

gashuffer,

On the MO3 I build the TRF M Chassis shocks as per instruction, including the "o" ring. For a MO5 I omit the "o" ring. You have options with regards the pistons:

3 hole 50 wt oil front 40 wt oil rear
3 hole 60 wt oil front 50 wt oil rear

2 hole 40 wt oil front and rear
2 hole 30 wt oil front and rear

Comes back to how you want the car to react.

Happy racing.

Regards,

Calvin.

Hello,

You are talking about 30wt and 40 wt oil.
I ám use Tamiya oil, is 30wt the same as 300 from Tamiya and 40wt as 400??
Or exist there a conversion table for.

Best regards Bart
