I know you need your ball diff to be as stiff as possible on a M-03 to avoid wheelspin while cornering.. but how about the M-04? Does it need to be tight or loose?

My m03 diff is locked and the wheels still spin through the corners due to weight transfer everyone I run with uses pretty much the same setup and experiences the same thing

For the M04, i would suggest building it as per the instructions. I made the mistake of using a stiff diff and was having lots of problems on carpet during the tamiya asia cup race last year. The tail swings and snaps during cornering and after i rebuild the diff flushing out the AW grease, the problem was solved. Have yet to test it on outdoor tracks but i guess it should work well too.

Go to Northwest For Sale, there are 2 that I have seen personally. They are both fully hopped up, and almost new.

Alloy shocks used in mini's are the same the tourers but with spacers inside to limit travel as per guide: http://www.tamiyausa.com/articles/fe...?article-id=12
