what a friend ? ....... you e-mail his photos to Tamiya USA and at the same time you know the answer is NO.

I would keep quite and low profile if I were you rcmnx.

...and that's the kind of thanks you get for giving someone an opinion and an option.

Been to too many TCS races where people were told their setup wasn't permitted- after they had spent time in setup and practice with it.

I guess no good deed goes unpunished

Thanks sir,

I just don;t want to be disqualified if I win the race...

Do you have any specific guideline about what hopup option (tell me the part number) that is legal for M-03 under TCS rule ?

Frankly, I have modified almost all of the part, including (u see in the picture), the ball stud (come from TL-01LA hop up for FF02 ball stud), servo stay from TRF (I change to 49320 for my TRF), and alum hex wheel from TRF.

So your information about the hop up part number will be much appreciate.

BTW, you still guessing that this modification is forbidden. Let me know if they (Tam USA) give their answer to you (PM me)


Thanks.

Yes, of course. I just want to describe from the pics I gave.

Other mod include...
1. Steering turnbuclke with titanium
2. Adjustble rear upper arm made of spare stabilzer set for M03, make the rear wheel a bit toe-in (beside negative chamber) so I don't need 53345
3. Rear stabilizer
4. Super mini shock (50746 if I'm not wrong)
5. TA03 ball diff.
6. Short spring medium (yellow fr) and soft (red rr)
7. motor heat sink
8. titanium round head for motor
9. all titanium 10mm & 15 mm
10 5mm alum flange lock nut.
11 hi torque servo saver.
12 alum ball end. (I've just changed them, but not in the picture).
13 reinforce wheel

those are so far I remember

also :

1. ball bearing,
2. hollow carbon
3. lt weight diff ball (not carbide)
4. and will add ss supension shaft, so I can remove the middle screw on each lower arm (does it legal for TCS).

5. also remove the battery holder and using velcro strap to retain the stickpack (is it legal)

6. lt weight kingpin from TA02

About the pinion, I use the 53509 20T hard coated because the std one, will strip fast using ball diff.


... thx

Cool Mr. Wang, I'll think about it if I follow the mini outlaw class.
BTW, do you sell 32-22 gear combination with 25T pinion available ?


thanks

Here are some basic rules if you want to join TCS

1. Tamiya cars only
2. Tamiya hop up only designated for that particular model
3. No re-engineering
4. No exploitation of TCS rules deficiency ( loop holes )

In return, you get :

1. fair fight among drivers
2. less headache eg. attempting to re-engineering or exploitation of rules.

Beleive it or not : last year winner at Tamiya Asia Cup was using almost bare bone TT-01 ( alluminium shaft and TRF damper only ).

Hey rccardr,

Forgot to tell you, I took 6th in the A at the Novak race this month with my Mini. Competition was very tuff, we had guys from all over the country racing. Many of our local guys didn't even make the show.

Thanks for all your help and tips,

Did you notice what tire the winner use ? On carpet or asphalt ?
And what spur - pinion combination ?

Thanks

Trying to figure out where to put electronics on my M03.

Can anyone post a pic of where they located their ESC and receiver? I have a Novak Cyclone C2 and it doesnt have a switch so I have to put it on a convenient location.

I put my receiver and ESC inside the rear part of the chassis...
