There's a couple, as mentioned, most touring cars use these now, back in the day we use to drive the pin out of the axle and use weedeater string, it worked just as well.
Sorry for the double posts, but now I see how these work and why you need to mill the slot open to accept them. Will the ones listed above from AMain fit on the Tamiya mini axle? Thanks again for the info guys!

Hey Tiko, what bodies are those? Nice paint!

Brilliant!!! as our european friends would say.....

I may just have to give this a go. Seems a lot easier than milling out the diff cups with a dremel and cut off wheel. A assume you secure the string with a little super glue.

Do you guys know if you have to change the body posts or if there is any
other mods needed to mount the 510 body on a m05?

No, just use string slightly larger than the pin and trim the end so u can get it started then just pull through with pliers and give it a trim, works like a charm, last forever, so do drive cups.

Wow, great find Andy.

I'll be jumping on this band wagon for sure.

I'm still waiting for my parts to come from Horrizon and RC-Mart. Maybe the postal gods will be good to me tomorrow.

How is it that UPS can get something from California to Michigan in 3 days but it take a week and a half for the US postal service to get something here from one state over. Priority mail my ass

X-ray ones will. I used these since there were some in the spare parts box. The TC5 should work also. The Tamiya ones are slightly smaller so probably will be a much better fit.

Look, I only go thru all this hassle cause the M05 ball diff does not create any level of confidence. That little 2x25mm diff screw worries me and the outdrives seem to be very soft from the ones I've seen. Tamiya is selling them, the screw, nut and nut holder, for $6. It shouldn't cost them more than 30 cents. Somehow that just doesn't seem right. Nothing against them making a profit, but -------

Clayton ,

I was told previously that they didn't fit. Yet it appears as though they do....
As they are MWB, I would buy one for sure. If you find them locally , let me know.

Hi Fleety, when you had your 1200 body did you use standard body posts?
i might phone around & see if a can find a hpi body, if it works out i'll let
you know.

Hey thanks Timmig, do you still run 5th scales the guy that wanted to buy my FG changed his mind. Also I finished putting my Associated 12R5 but I havenít had a chance to take it for a spin. I like to take it to a track with other 12 scaleís that way I can ask for some help on set-up and things. This is my 1st 12 scale car and I need all the help that I can get.

Yeah-- I race 1/5 scale---I"ve got a couple of guys looking for cars. I don't recall what you've got. But bring your 1/12 down to Westcoast next Tuesday and we'll work on it!! I've got mine working okay--still need to make some adjustments but it's getting there.
FWIW
