2) What is the difference between TA03 diff set and Manta Ray diff set? Which one should I get.

3) Is the new M03m chassis basically the same but with a shorter extension piece to M03L? Just want to know if I get the chassis extension then I could run the BMW Cooper body.

4) Any useless stuff in the list below or did I miss anything that I need.

58368 Suzuki Swift Super 1600 - M03M
51237 Suzuki Swift Super 1600 Wheel Set
53267 TA03 Ball Differential Set
53343 M03 Front/Rear Stabilizer
53344 M03 Aluminum Heat Sink
53345 Toe-in Rear Upright
53346 Ouick Release Batt Holder
53390 Hollw Carbon Gear Shaft
53523 Alum Front Upright Set
53527 3 x 32 Titan Turnbuckle
53569 Clamp Type Alum Wheel Hub - 6mm
49198 TRF Damper Set
53488 Adjustable Ball Connectors x 2
53333 Touring Car Tuned Spring Set (Short)
53205 M-Chassis Universal Shaft Set
53340 M Chassis 60D Reinforced Tires Type A x 4
50686 60D Inner Sponge Tire Set (Soft) x 2
53379 Light Weight Diff Balls

Does anyone know where to get a Honda Civic Type R EK hatchback body that can fit the M03 chassis?

Thanks in advance.

1. get the hard inserts.

2. get the ta03 diff. its smaller

3. run BMW for long chassis

4. I would get. Toe in (for tuning), Quick release battery holder (makes changing batteries much easier - no need for body clips), Spring set (tuning), Turnbuckle (tuning more easier), Hollow carbon fibre shafts (faster)

Also essential (if you want to go fast) is ball bearings if you dont already have

You need to go buy the correct springs for the car, not sedan springs. They make Mini springs you can buy in pairs only , they do not sell them in sets.

That motor alum heatsink is useless. Its more bling than actually functional as a heatsink. But its cheap anyway so pimp your car Everything else is useful.

Default Upper arms

Hi, I too love racing these M-cars. I'm building another now and was wondering if the 53303 TL01 adustable arms will work on the M03. Has anybody tried this? If they work the car should still be TCS legal.

Also, does anybody know when the Suzuki Swift Super 1600 - M03M
will be released? I would like to get the chassis extender so I can use an HPI 225mm body.

I had seen a date of March 30th and also April. If you check the Tamiya USA website, they list the part number for the new suspension pieces including the body extender. Does anyone know the dimensions of the "1050" bearing that are used in the new suspension pieces?

Default fixed axle

You could squirt shoe-goo in a stock diff. That should lock it up. If you try it tell us how it goes.

I did and it added a lot of weight up front.....

Turning became an issue with a tight track and I felt it did not help me at all.

The front wheels have 2 functions on the m03, the rear one....
Front: Wheel drive and steering
Rear: tracking only

On a tight track a well built ball diff is the only way to go.....
