More info on the new M03-M. Looks like only 3 new things are different from the M03 that we have now.

Good picture, it describes the changes well.

1. Extension looks in between M-03 and M-03L; some handling implications here.
2 & 3. The new front and rear uprights look thinner, that they say is weight savings, but I'm sure that is negligable; and for many of us the beefier plastic still warps so we got the aluminum front uprights, thinner sounds worse. You can already get bearings and 2 degree toe in so this doesn't look any different here.

Doesn't sound like the M-03M suspension is going to obsolete the other M-03's; just a mid-preference wheel base packaged with 1/2 the bearings we need. Nice looking though.

in my opinion, mini's heat sink is quite usefull during racing, when motor get hot (even if you using a thick paper when mounting the motor) it will meke the motor mounting made of plastic a little bit softer and make motor not stay consistent, if u using the mini's heat sink, the aluminium will help the motor to stay put.

Answer for your question about 22t pinion ? I think it's not possible, max. is 21t ( after the spur gear is worn out ). As everybody know this is illegal for TCS / TAC .
thanks for answer.in my place, no rules for mini racing..it's out law..except in race that provide by Tamiya Indonesia.
using solid axle = no diff action, where ever & when ever u squeeze the throttle, forward power is out from those front tyres, no slip. the neg effect is just a very little bit under steer, so now depend on your throtlle control. but for me ....solid axle is magnificent!!!
just try it...

Default Lock your diff

The G-parts from the VW Touareg has two plastic pieces that replace the spider gears to lock the rear diff. They are on Tamiya part number 9005422 and should be available from Tamiya.

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...uct-id=9005422

Its nice that it is a reversable mod. But I don't think that it is TCS legal. Take a look at the exploded view of the Touareg and you can see them as G-5 near the rear diff.
