Monkeyracing - Who makes the 49 Mercury? I think McAllister makes one, but I thought it was too big. Thanks.

Parma 10133 is the part number. Fits 1:10 scale, 200mm width. It's a beast!

Too bad they don't make them for minis.

Awrite guys I got to run my mo3r on the carpet for the first time yesterday.. I built the car per the instruction manual. Ride height is 5mm all the way around.. M-slicks front and rear. Front to rear balance is 820g front 530g rear.. Stock front sway bar, White springs all around.. Originally started with both front and rear sway bars but had way too much rotation.. The back would come around in a heartbeat off power . Removed the rear swaybar made a slight improvement to the looseness in the rear.. Still seems very unstable.. Once tires got warm traction rolling began Running traction compound all around as well..

Any advice on what to do? I have the full set of regular short springs blue, yellow, red and I think one other. I'm not sure of the rate on teh white springs.. On my old swift I ran red and yellows soft in teh back slightly stiffer in the front. That was on asphalt though. Never ran it on carpet...

For lack of a better word I'd like the car to push a bit before it rolls I want more rear traction but the car is rolling alredy.. So would I be better served with trying to reduce the front traction in hopes of balancing the grip better and not inducing a spin so easily??

A thin bead of CA glue on the very outside edge of the front tires works wonders.

I just picked up a M03 with the Mini CVA shocks. I've put the largest internal spacer in the front and the smaller internal spacer in the rear (using the spacers that came with the parts tree). I'm using the regular touring springs and I'm getting 8mm ride height all around. Was wondering how to get a 5mm ride height? Run shorter springs?

What kind of spacers are people running?

Thanks Tim I will give that a try before changing anything else.... How far up onto the tread do you go? Just the sidewall or sidewall and aprt of the tread or just part of the tread? Never even though tabout that hahah. I used to do that when we ran indoor offroad with the 1/18 scale trucks

anyone having issues with the stock Tamiya ESC? I would run the car then all of a sudden it will stop working and the ESC will beep and doesn't seem to get any RX signal.

Just about 3 millimeters on the side wall and 3 on the tread is good.
