It's 210mm

Sadly, the two M-Chassis Porsche cars Tamiya made are "L"s so the WBs are 239mm, so it would require you add/remove the spacer depending on which body you are running.

Yeah I just did a little research and saw that its for the M02L. The wheelbase is 239MM not 225MM. Oh well I will keep the Alfa and get a Datsun 510 also. No Porsche for my M this time.

The only 210mm Suby body I know of is the one from Colt.



Kinda goofy looking IMO

The Ride WRX is sweet, but it only has a 225mm WB. The HPI RS4 Mini is the only 4WD chassis I know of that suits that body. I completely regret selling mine.

Tech Racing's M03M conversion is 225mm, that looks similar to a TRF415. And of course, the HPI Cup Racer can be made to 225mm. I wanted the Ride Subaru body for my Ken Block replica, but its $35 plus shipping, whereas the Colt Skoda was $16 plus shipping, and looks a bit like the hatchback Impreza.

I think the SKODA is a better choice of body to go with because you don't see to many of those around but you see tons of Subaru's. I was pondering on getting the SKODA but I found a Toyota corolla group B decal set for reasonable price so I will have to get a body next. I wanted to get this body for a while but I couldn't find the decal set for under $25 plus shipping. But I found a guy that wanted only $19 including shipping so I had to snatch it up before he sold it. And since Corolla body is 1/12 scale it fits the M03 perfectly.

What do you think will be a good setup for m05...
Holes inside the shock?
Shock spring?
oil weight?
Swaybar?
camber front/rear?
60d s-grips tires very good traction.
medium bite parking lot track pavement
I will be using m-chassis trf alum damper.
