I use red springs in the front and blue in the back and this does the job for me. Also try a faster motor then your stock motor to break in the gears I'd say use the Tamiya sport tuned motor 27T or the Tamiya lightly tune motor 28T. Both motors a better then the stock silver can motor that the car comes with, the Sport tuned motor has a good steady band of speed and the Lightly tuned motor has better top end speed. Run the car thru at least three battery charges and make sure your motor pinion is on tight otherwise you will strip some gears I always check to make sure I tighten the pinion right before I put the motor in. I use a little cement on the screw to make sure it does not move. I hope this helps you out a bit.
Thanks for good advice!
I am now running the Tamiya 'Super stock motor TZ' (23Turn tamiya-nr: 53696)
So it should be enough to break in the gears... I will recheck the pinion and use some loctite on it to secure it.

I will get the options springs for the 3racing dampers and test softer springs infront, as my car has started to bounce lately, since the front wheels became slicks...

Again Thanks!

The tires do not fit the wheel arches, you would have to make them larger.

Default mini coop bodies

I recently purchased a tamiya rtr m03 mini-cooper set. I noticed that my body seems to sit pretty high compared to others that I've seen run. Are there huge differences in companys and models currently out there? What does everyone recommend for a replacement if I wanted to stick with the old school cooper body?

Thanks !!

Jeff
