I'm willing to trade a New 14T blue LPR racing ESC 3.1v Generation+ forward/break no reverse for a tamiya TEU-101BK New. P.m. me if interested. I don't really use this since I went brushless and I could use the Tamiya ESC to put into my restored Rough Rider buggy so I can have reverse, besides I only have a silver can motor in the buggy so I don't need the 14T racing ESC.

We will be at the TCS Nats for parts support. The mini enduro participants should be well stocked and very prepared, as most of them have been racing minis for years, maybe decades!

I wondered about this as well. 3Racing offers a urethane front bumper, but unfortunately, it doesn't fit the Mini Cooper body. It fits perfect on the Swift body or any other bodies with a longer front end. My only complaint is the weakness of the plastic bracket. Although it has a carbon bumper support, it would be stronger if it was designed similarly to the TT01E.

You can mount the front bumper from the Baja Champ.
C- Parts from the TL-01B chassis #0005688.

Default TL01B front bumper on M-05

Do you have a picture of it mounted on an M-05, with a Mini Cooper body? I'm concern if the bumper is exposed or not.

Default are the 3 racing alum shock for mini any good?

Hi all,

I just bought a M05 pro. I'm looking to replace the shocks with alum. Are the 3 racing alum shocks any good? Can they be rebuild with tamiya shock parts? I only bash and maybe club race, no tcs racing.

Thanks

I just bought some for my M05(the blue TRF copies). Seem OK for the price .
except, one of mine didnt have the top seal/bladder thingy, so was just slowly leaking all the oil out in the box. I think thats why they use that packing material, to soak up any leaking oil.

The ball connectors were weird, top was differnet size ball/connector than bottom (why??)

Im pretty sure 3Racing sells rebuild kits for em if needed.
