The "pulley" you refer to is not a pulley but rather a housing which the bolt sits inside of. You put the plate over it and can use it in the M05

Look at the metal "pulley" as you call it. It doesn't have even teeth on it and drives nothing in the Minis

HMMM i am 100% that the instructions say they fit the M05 front AND rear , but the M03 ONLY rear

not bothered but hey , we dont have a TCS here so no rules about this ,

i need some help with my M05 on low/ medium grip asphalt

the car is unstable at high speeds and on corners the rear will step out off power but on power the rear is ok

any one got a good set up for the M05 outside ???

Try a little more front toe out.

Run 2 degree rear hubs (the new 3 Racing ones are good because it allows the use of long rear links which helps

i have been using the standard plastic 2 degree rear hubs & my car does
feel better at higher speeds than it did with the alloy 1.5 degree but am keen
to try the 3 racing hubs, was wondering about the longer rear links, do
they allow more flex? & have you tried the 3 degree hubs?

I have used the 3 degree hubs and they work well . It just depends on the track.

The longer rear link means less camber change under compression so better handling

Raced my M03 last Saturday with a BMW body. By coincidence, I spotted a real BMW by a fellow racer. Maybe someday...



More photos of the mini bmw.

Thanks for looking.

i am running the standard rear hubs

i was going to try the 1.5 alloy ones but i think it would make it more nervous

i am going to strip it clean everything and try a totally differant set up as this is totally wrong

so i want a complete setup from someone please

well i think i have found my problem .

I was looking at my shocks and i decieded to rebuild them and for some stupid reason i had added 3mm spacers under the piston of the mini shocks giving me almost no rebound/droop

i have rebuilt them with 350 oil all round and Yellow mini springs , M chassis instead of my normal S chassis and 2mm spacers in the adjustable upper arms giving me 2 degrees of camber and i am using the standard hubs with i think 3 dergees toe in

this should see me quicker

For those who want to see the cream of Aussie Mini racers in action. Here's the 3 'A' Mains from the 2010 Australian Mini Nationals held just a few days ago at the fantastic Wodonga track in Victoria.

A wrinkle on the M-03 and M-05 comparison, I'd like to hear opinions from those who have owned both.

Which chassis is TOUGHER? As in, which one would experience less breakage in the hands of a beginning racer?

The M05 chassis is tougher, but the C hubs are a littled more prone to breaking. M03 C hubs can be substituted for them, or you can get aluminum replacements.

Umm, M05 and M03 C hubs are the same...

The M05 uses the uprated front suspension that every M03 from the Suzuki Swift onwards has used.

Which is tougher? M03. Less bits to break. The M05 steering has lots of bits in the whole bellcrank system, none of which the M03 has.
Apart from that there's nothing in it really.

M03 & M05 C hubs are different. The M05's have the steering link bump stop & seem to be a little more brittle in my experience.
