Hi all, this is my first post in this thread. I've just bought an M05 Pro and am looking forward to going racing if my batteries ever arrive

I just have a complete newb question so I hope you don't mind. When it says to glue the inserts with rubber cement/glue what glue are you using? Is it even necessary if you are supergluing the tyres to the rims.

Thanks for the help

Simon

Contact cement works better for me.

I switched from the tamiya inserts to the Spice/ Ride moulded foam inserts. All you have to is insert them in the tires. Less fuss and muss.

No, the M05 ball diff uses 15 x 10 outdrive bearings. Cant fit in the M03 which uses outdrives which slip through 11 x 5 bearings

I also read somewhere that you can fit a TA05-diff into the M-03. Is that correct?
It does use the same bearings, AFAIK

won't work - the TA05 is a belt-drive car, so its got a pulley instead of a bevel gear like the m05 needs

the M05 ball diff is similar to the ta05 diff in design and probaby some parts - but the main (important) gears are different

I've had good luck with the TA03 diff. Dap of locktite on the screw and bottom it out.

The diff that you are referring to is the TA03 ball diff NOT the TA05. It fits. Also the Manta ray ball diff will fit

The TAO3 ball diff is the best choice for either the MO3 or MO5 mini. The MO5 diff is not reliable unless you modify it, so it works properly. I have broken numerous diff bolts on the MO5 diff and replaced them with thicker bolts and thrust washers. Then you transfer the wear onto the aluminium diff halves which then scoreand spread open.

If you use the hardened outdrives on the MO5 diff, with a 3mm diff screw, with a 3mm thrustbearing and then retap the 416 diff nut and grind down to fit the slot in the hardened outdrives the diff will work. Not all will want to go to so much trouble....

To prevent all that work, just build the TAO3 ball diff and add nitro fuel line into the diff cups and good to go.

The diff comes down to how tight do you want it to be. I prefer with our HW BL systems to use a tight diff and accept the wear. If you do not use a tight diff then you get lunched off the line and when trying to get out of the corners.

BTW,

silvermag,

That is funny for a sunday morning read.

Anyway good luck with what you decide.

Calvin

Does the Tamiya 104 speedo have 2 plugs that plug into the receiver? If so, the 3 wire one would go into ch. 2 ,what is the second 2 wire one for?

The slot that marks Batt in your receiver.

Thanks for the info! Out of curiosity, do you know what it's for? I haven't seen this before and am just wondering.
