Default M-06 ???

I've just been looking at the rc-mini website (http://www.rc-mini.net/joomla/), and there are pictures of an M-06 RWD M-chassis...


Edit: And just noticed that there is already a thread about it (TAMIYA M-06 Thread).

The colour....and that's true.

The kits are identical apart from the blue plating on the chassis, and transparent blue (as opposed to clear) shocks

I sure wish Tamiya would get over those crappy clear shocks.

Can anyone tell me what shocks come with kit number 58465? That's the Fiat Abarth 1000. Tower lists them as plastic oil filled. If thats the case, are they CVA super mini or the clear ones?

You don't like the clear shocks? they're cool, you can put food colouring in with the shock oil and they end up looking like lava lamps!

The Fiat kit that I have came with the crappy M05 friction shocks.

Well i just noticed while preparring for this weeknds race i never switched out the outdrives. Upon comparrison i noticed the outdrives for the ball diff are about 1-2 mm longer.
What effects would this have on driving ? Im hoping this has fixed my traction roll issues but have no track to practice on till Sat.
We are in a very close points battle (2 points seperating 4 cars for 3rd place)
and this weekend is final leg

Thanks
The only difference the outdrives should make is the durability. The longer ones will be harder to strip out, which is a benefit to you. I mistakenly used gear diff outdrives on the ball diff, one hit just cleared out all of the teeth on the diff half since there was so little contact area.

It's more the gear diff that's in question.. how is it built? Extra washers for some tension? AW grease? how does it usually feel compared to the (formerly working) ball diff?

Would you mind checking to see if your kit number is the same as the one I listed? Tower charges $30 more for this kit than the other M-05 Kits. Must be something besides different tires to justify that.

Well a tight ball diff will induce a nice off throttle push, which helps to reduce traction roll into the corner. The stock ball diff is very free and thus can make the car snappy on turn in.

I tune the front end with the amount of traction additive on the tire (carpet) and or using super glue on the sidewall. But a lot of perfomance improvement came from filling the gear diff with 80000 oil. Just fill, screw on the diff cap and seal both parts together with ca glue and activator to prevent the oil to run out... You need to clean bearings and gears every few hours of running but to me the handling advantage is too significant.

They come with friction shocks. The 30 dollar difference is because of the body and all the plastic motor parts. I have one and you can only run 55's with that body btw.

Yep, part number is the same 58465. They have to charge extra for the re-tooling they had to do to get the fiat body to fit the M05 ... well, it wasn't so much re-tooling as just telling you in the instructions to cut part of the body shell away to clear the rear shocks

How cool will it be to fit the Abarth body to the M06 and acutally have a motor under the engine cover?

Thanks guys. You saved my some money. I'll email Tower about the misinformation.

I'm excited about the M-06 as well. Looking at the HPI Porsche body for their cup racer. There are so many cool bodies out there that really belong on a rwd chassis.

Has any one ran the HPI cup wheels and tyres on a tamiya mini??

Are they any good?

I have a set of sweep 32 on order to try but wanted to see what these are like.
