What body are are after Matt?

Are you after the normal mini one or something else?

Metro Hobbies in Box Hill has bodies, but get the shocks from RC-Mushroom or the like.
Tower hobbies also has a decent selection of bodies.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions
Are you running the gear diff outdrives (cups) in the TA03 diff? the gear diff outdrives are longer and would definitely cause a problem.

Default Trade 20T pinion for 19T

So i know this is kinda random...but I was wondering if anyone wanted to trade a 19T pinion for my 20T?

I bought the 20T/21T pinion combo and my M04L only uses a 17, 19 or 21.

So since I'll probably never has a use for a 20T, I figured maybe someone would want to trade for it. (If not...a 19T is only like 5 bucks, so its no biggie!)

If you're already running the TA03 outdrives with the TA03 diff then it should work ... do you think you could post a photo showing the front knuckle, dogbone, outdrive all in the car, that might help.

Stupid Atlantic Ocean has to be all up in the way!! I do appreciate the thought,,,would have been nice if you were closer!

Quick question too: Do normal 60D tires fit on any of these 3racing wheels?

the ONLY wheels i use are the M chassis Swift 11 spoke wheels , in either orange yellow black or white , these are the strongest ones

the plated blue versions from the M03r are a bit too soft

I do know that the Sweep tyres fit better on the Cross Rims than the 3Racing rims.
my 3racing rims are a little bit wider, 25mm wide, 42.5mm dia
May still not be suitable for 60's ?
hope that helps ??

Thanks for the help Tim. Unfortunately my camera is down, but I tried adding some silicone donuts to the outdrives and it helps keep the dogbones in the front axels better. I still experience the dog bones pushing the bearings out of the front C Hub when i make sharp turns. Do you think extra donuts in the out drives would cure this?

See that red Mini on the left? Wanna know how quick it goes with a 5.5 brushless in it?

And the orange Mini in the centre? Maybe we finally know just who the Stig really is now...

And who can do a knife-edge manoeuvre (unsuccessfully) with a Fiat Abarth?

All those questions answered, PLUS lots and lots of new Minifan additions too.

Right HERE on rc-mini.net
