Thanks for the extra information Drag on. Can you take a picture of the car with the body on it and then of de bottom of the car? So you can see how many space there is between the bumper and the body?

I have also found this one maybe someone has experience with it?

SQUARE m03m bumper should do it, dremel, sanding and cutting not required.... If our local hobby shop sell those bumper i will buy it straight, unfortunately no one has them in stock.

Well about the space length, i think it's close enough to the body, you can just simply trim it to fit the desire length between the body and the bumper.

Parts by SQUARE are quite pricey, but nice quality though.

I had one of the Square bumpers on my M03 and it didn't last too long.
A few hits later and the plastic mount cracked then snapped.

Which is a contradiction in itself

No link to a recent mini race, but here is an nice older video a magazine made of our regular winter series The second half is particularly good:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...3617718730592#


...tried for ages to get that embeded, without success
can anyone explain how to embed google videos in posts here?

thanks !

actually hitting that corner you mention shows up the main problem I still have with the car.
I had to lift more than usual those 2 times to not hit the car in front, that caused the car to dig in more than expected...
there's another spot on the vid where I had to turn in tighter than I wanted on the hairpin to try to defend, and the car goes up onto 2 wheels, loosing momentum, and the place....

Still, from where the car was 2 weeks ago to now is a HUGE improvement.
But still not quite as good as my 03.

please someone bring out Sway bars for the 05 !!

gonna be building the m-05 tomorrow. I was just wondering what to do with the diff. In my m-03 i had a bal diff (sold it). So I was wondering if I should pack it with heavy diff oil (300k) or just build it as is.

we run the one way diff in our cars to great success takes a bit to get use to but works great i have mo5r and made some sway bars out os piano wire for the back and it works goog have car in short form and sway bar in the front hole .i used the sway bar kit from mo3 for front end , if on carpet ca the front outer rib of tire and it will not traction role and drop car down as low as it will go without rubbing bottom of chassis

To be honest I dont really see the advantage to this except you wont have any brakes.
