There has opened a new racing class in my area, which is called FunnyRacing (because thatís whatís it's all about
The rules state that you have to use a M-chassis car, and the 13T Ezrun motor (or silvercan or Sportstuned, but they are clearly at a disadvantage here). Thatís pretty much the only restrictions there are.
In the first race (which I participated in) in became clear that foam tires was the way to go. The fastest guys use normal 1/10 foams, they make 60 mm in diameter (don't know the word for the process when you sandpaper the tires).
My brother and I drove on minifoams from Year-racing. We were very happy with handling and traction, but since the wheels are only 54 mm in diameter from the start, in means that we lose about 10% in top speed, compared to the others.
So on to my question (at last). Have any of you tried the new M05 speed tuned gears from 3Racing? Do they work, and can we also use them in our M03 and M04?
Mind you there are NO rules concerning modding the car, so itís not illegal in our races to change parts on our cars, as long as the chassis still is a M-chassis from Tamiya.
Also I don't like the look of the big wheels, so I'm very keen to keep using the mini foam tires if possible.
Thanks for any replies
