The TA03 ball diff is a direct replacement for the gear diff.

If you put in an M05 ball diff, that is however different. I think there should be instructions on the packet with the m05 diff.

Things to note, the TA03 ball diff comes with out drives because they are different to the outdrves of the gear diff. Loctite the screw through the center of the ball diff. And do it up nice and tight.
You can strip the thread when tightening up, but i do mine up pretty hard i stripped the aluminium part (not the screw) once.

Measured mine and it's 3 x 26mm. Also there's only 6mm of threads from the end. The rest is a smooth shank. Don't think it matters whether its like this or threaded all the way up if you need a replacement.

Really? only 1mm longer than the original screws?

Found my heatsink but can't find my screws so I'm trying to find replacement. The extra thread doesn't matter.

Ok it was 26.13mm per my calipers to the bottom of the screw head.

I doubt 1mm longer will be a problem but I would screw them in and hand roll the wheels and listen for scrapping sounds before powering the motor.

Just make sure the gear on the diff goes in the correct chassis half to marry up with the gear that turns it - i think it's the right chassis half but don't quote me!

It's amazing how fun the mini class is. Locally we are getting 30-35+ each race day. We are moving to a permanent track in the next month!

Has anyone put the M03 heatsink on the m05? Does it fit without modification?

I ask because I think when I was in Japan, I saw some racers using this(however they allowed chassis modification there).

Yes the Tamiya motor heatsink for the MO3 will fit the MO5, or just use the 3Racing one that has been made for the MO5. The Tamiya heatsink requires no modification, however the 3Racing does require two of the front fins to be filed back if using the Tamiya MO5 alloy knuckles. However if you are racing TCS then I suppose the 3Racing is not legal.

Default M01 ???

M01's are often turning up on the local online auction sites at reasonable prices. The M01 's Ive seen seem just as capable as the stock M03/M05

I was thinking, the M01 looks sort of more tub car like, lower COG ??
Are the M01 /02 still a good car, just as a fun racer ??
Even perhaps try & hop it up with M03 dual shocks etc.

What's the part number for the Tamiya heatsink?

Thanks for the write up.

The bonus parts do have instructions provided. They are in the back of the manual the same as any other Tamiya kit. It is also the same as the 417 for this info.

4 hours for a car build is nothing. I built my World Championship Mini in about 10 hours(m05) and then still spent time on it after that.

Anyways it is cool to read some info/opinion on the M06 and have those unique pictures.

There should be about 6-8 of them at our next carpet race on Jan 9th!
