What's the part number for the Tamiya heatsink?
Tamiya 53344 for the silver motor heatsink.

I don't even want to speculate about my time building my minis. There was a period when I was trying to reduce slop. It didn't work. Then I spent lots of time installing blingy stuff. That didn't work.

The only thing that made my mini fast was increasing efficiency. I had tranny gears that would spin and spin, like they were weighted. My wheels would rotate if you looked t them the wrong way. My alignment was astounding.

So many hours filing and fitting. I got accused of cheating because of my car's acceleration and top speed, even when I'd run a dud motor. It's all about efficiency.

Too bad I'm a crappy driver.

for the base M05, is it worth getting the -1.5 rear hubs or is the -2 good enough?

jcr,

The two is OK and they come standard on the base MO5 and MO3. If you go the 1.5 you will gain some steering and some added bling, plus you can get more negative camber by using the lower hole on the hub. You will find a mixture on most cars at an event. The more rear toe the more drag.

For myself, I am about to start using the old zero degree blocks from the original MO3 and see how I go with them on my MO5. Yes it will be a little more unstable, however I think the benefits outweigh the risk.

Later,

Calvin.

Hi all, and Happy New Year!
So I thought I would give a shot at what seems to be the very popular world of Mini's. My M-05 Pro is on order and should arrive this week along with all the mandatory blue bits (steering parts, front uprights, motor mount, heat sink, etc.). Still haven't decided on the body, seems its between the Honda S800 (something different) and the Mini Cooper. I'm sure some of my questions have been asked a hundred times in the nearly 1000 pages of this topic, so accept my apologies up front.
I have a Castle Sidewinder 1:10 ESC with a 4600 kV motor I thought I would use. Too much power? Will the ESC fit? I see that the Hobbywing ESC and motor seem to be mentioned a lot. If I choose the HW, what Amp ESC (35 or 60) should I get, along with what turn motor. Am I looking at the "eZRun" or the "Xerun"? I'm not overly concerned with the rules at our local park (Roadrunners here in Camarillo, SoCal) as I usually just race with friends. I'm just afraid to have too much power to the point where it is not driveable. If I decide to race, I think their rules specify a Silver Can motor; will the HW EzRun work on a brushed motor?
Sorry for the long novel, but I would like to get this right from the start.
I appreciate all the input from you folks, as it was helpful pointing me on the right track with my touring car (TB-03) and my Buggies. With a 3 year old daughter, I don't have much free time for trial and error
Thanks!!! SoCal.

Thumbs up

SoCalGuy,

Not sure if you got the following answered:

I have a Castle Sidewinder 1:10 ESC with a 4600 kV motor I thought I would use. Too much power? I think so, you will have lots of wheel spin and wear through tyres quickly.

Will the ESC fit? Yes. I have the HW system on the right of the car when viewed from the rear.

I see that the Hobbywing ESC and motor seem to be mentioned a lot. If I choose the HW, what Amp ESC (35 or 60) should I get, along with what turn motor. We use either the 25 Amp or 35 Amp Ezi-run with the 13T sensor less motor using a 20 tooth pinion. It also the combination we are allowed to use in mini racing in Australia.

Am I looking at the "eZRun" or the "Xerun"? As above response.

I'm not overly concerned with the rules at our local park (Roadrunners here in Camarillo, SoCal) as I usually just race with friends. I'm just afraid to have too much power to the point where it is not driveable. If I decide to race, I think their rules specify a Silver Can motor; will the HW EzRun work on a brushed motor? Unfortunately no.

On the speed control we also turn the punch up to max and the timing to full. The mini will still wheel spin but this can be overcome a little by adding some ballast to the front in/on the bumper.

Regards,

Calvin.

Calvin,

Thanks for the detailed answers
Can't wait to get this thing built; I think it's going to be a blast to drive.

Cheers,
SoCal

Last year we bought you the M05 in 5 video...

This year it's the latest car out of Shizuoka, the M06 in...well 9 minutes..we couldn't do it in 6!

Marvel at the lightning fast fingers as they dance through the 06 assembly. Mock openly the poor production values and minimalist dialogue!
