The setup and tires are totally different for both!

The M-05 runs on soft spring and damping. Also softer tire inserts

The M-03 runs on firmer springs and damping. Also firmer tire inserts.
Thanks for the info.

What body are you using with your 239mm chassis" i guess Tamiya offers only the modern mini cooper right?

I really wish there were more mid and long wheelbase bodies available. Yeesh.

Are you sure?

Current Mini Cooper S wheel base is 2470mm compared to 239mm for Tamiya LWB equivalent. Around 1/10.

BMC Mini from the 60's had a wheel base of 2040mm compared to 210mm for the Tamiya SWB equivalent. Also 1/10.

I think you'll find it is the Datsun 280 ZX which is 1/12 scale. Wheel bases I could find on the web for the different models ranged from 2320mm to 2520mm which is closer to 1/12 scale when compared to the 210mm SWB M05 it will be mounted on.

More details are on the Tamiya America web site where it is still referred to as 1/12 scale . Kit p/n is 92213.

Does the 3Racing foam bumper for the M05 fit on the M03M?

Bumper will not fit. Different screw locations.

Thanks for the information. I couldn't find any 3racing bumper for the M03m and the Square one is expensive and not in stock at all shops.

yes I am sure

its more because of the size of the chassis not the dimensions sit a 12th scale pan car and a M03/M05 next to each other- the wheelbases will be very close

and as far as I knew - that kit wasn't a pure tamiya offering in the beginning, I thought it was some other company's body and Tamiya was 'sub-contracting' (so to speak) the M05 chassis for it

i believe its JUST on this particular kit - because of the 'special' body that's offered with it

The scale thing is more of a "guideline" than anything else. If you sit a Tamiya VW Beetle (M-04L) next to a Colt New Beetle (M-03S) the difference is huge. The old Tamiya Beetle, which at full size is a smaller car, dwarfs the Colt New Beetle.

Another example of "scale-ish." In our TT-01 class (1:10) there is a 49 Mercury and a Lotus Elise that are about the same size. HUGE difference between these cars in the real world.
