Thank you Calvin,

What I was refering to was the front kit for the M05 that was dicsussed in this thread earlier this year, I just wanted to fit those to my M03 to be TCS legal, could I build one set and still be legal?




Thanks again

Starteur,

There is no front set for the MO5. It was a mis understanding by some who jumped to the wrong conclusion when it was to be released.

For TCS you would have to use the kit provided part on both the MO3 and MO5.

The set was an adjustable set for the rear that can be used on both the MO3 and MO5. This is included with the MO3R and MO5 Pro rear 1.5 alloy degree hubs.

For TCS the set would be legal on the rear provided it is constructed and used with the correct length. These are with the instructions. It is an approved Tamiya hop up. I do believe that the length would be no longer than the kit part?

I can not be exact as we no longer have TCS races in Australia.

Atcom,

RC Mart have them listed at US $70 or 80. They were in stock last week.

Regards,

Calvin.

something to consider when getting the Xevo from RCMART.COM
They keep asking for document for address confirmation even if you are paying thru paypal. Asked them many times and with many mail bounch back after sending them a address confirmation document. Money was deducted from my account for a week and the still ask for confirmation. Very suspicious...

Ordered 3 sets of Xevo from them 2 weeks ago till now there is still no tracking number given and money was deducted.

3 cents worth.

Wow.... look like a warzone....... I think I 'll go with 4000mah 25c stick battery.

Thank you for showing the battery slot though ....

about attaching photo :

first you need to open account at photobucket, free of charge.

2nd, you need to upload your picture to photobucket.com

3rd, you need to link up the picture image you want to show in this thread.

I use longer titanium screws all around ( 3x12mm and 3x18mm ), Three degree rear toe in uprights, carbon graphite rods for internal gear shaft holder, TRF dampers, and Tamiya slicks.

Hi again,

Are all of Yeah Racing's batteries ROAR legal?????

That what they advertise on RC Mart's website.
And I can't find more than the 3200 on ROAR's List.

I need to know before buying.

Best regards

Default TA03 ball diff is causing me issues

Hi there. The TA03 ball diff is causing my mini to pull either left or right under full power (9T Ezrun BL). I tightened it as much as I dared without breakng it.
The old gear diff didnt have this issue. Any ideas on what I need to do ??
Is the motor just too much for this diff??
I may have to put the old diff back in.

1101,

What was the old diff? How tight have you made the TAO3 ball diff? If you made it to tight it may cause the symptoms. The same if the universal is binding on the o ring in the diff cup. Try a thinner o ring and see if that works.

The TAO3 ball diff is usually very good, even when you add an extra cone washer to make it tighter.

Good luck,

Calvin.

only the YR 3200 stick packs are legal. rcmarts ad is a bit misleading.

I'm interested in getting the HPI Honda Civic mini body, but was reading RC-Mini and it said it doesn't fit so well on the M03 because it's not wide enough. Was wondering is it not wide enough all around or just one end? And how much narrower is it compare to the M chassis?
