I've just got a M05 and I'm planning to do spec racing with it (no upgrades besides bearings and tires). Was wondering what do you guys recommend in terms of tires, toe setting, and what grease to use that would be good for spec racing.

Are the Tamiya CVA mini shocks 53619 the same size as the TRF M chassis one's?

Default M-05ra for carpet racing?

Been trying to find the differences between the M-05 and M-05ra. I want to get the ra because I want the new Alpine 110 body but I want to race it on carpet. I have to buy different spec tires and shocks anyway so those differences don't matter. I've read that there are differences in uprights and shock mounts. Would these changes make them unusable for carpet? Any other differences I'm not aware of?

Thanks.

Online as of today. Part 1 of our new M05 build-up and test blog. Everything you need to know about the M05 in a (hopefully) fortnightly installment package.


It all starts today here.

I just got a m-05. What hopups are recommended besides bearings and shocks?

What servo saver do u guys use? I am using the stock one and want to switch.

I need to change out bearings in the tranny. What is the best way to do this? There is no quick option right? I just have to take the whole thing apart?

Excuse me Sir, could you tell me where I could find a body to fit my m-chassis that looks a combination of a 12th Scale and a Transformer?

Oh never mind, I just found one....
