Could someone tell me what the part# is for the adaptor to convert an MO3 SWB to MWB? I know its a little plastic piece but not sure if its part of a parts tree or if sold separately? Thanks in advance.

Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone is running their M05 without the roll cage? Parts D2 and D3? Does it actually do anything?

Thanks.

Other than to reduce weight and to lower the CofG... some people swear for it gives a little chassis flex...

That was some great racing. It was very interesting to see the different lines used, especially in the last few corners before the straight. Cool.
Those of us who live in the area are so lucky cause Tamiya makes the track available to us almost every Saturday. The esses is where the "fast" guys become the "fast" guys. Brandon and a handful of other racers get that right almost every time. The rest of us, not so often. That Mickey Mouse chicane on the straight usually isn't there. It was terrible cause you could not see it from driving positions 6 thru 10.

For you Canadian fans, the other car in the video was Mike Z from Canada. Great driver and a good guy. Mike got to make the trip to Japan cause Brandon was not able to make the trip. The other videos are worth watching, especially the GT3 ones and an even better drive from Brandon in the second Mini main.

This thread is making me want a mini again, such a fun class. .....And with TCS coming back to WA it makes it even better.

I would love to run my mini like that, however since the roll cage is an integral part of the car and not listed as an optional part, has to be built as per instructions.

You see alot of pictures of the MO5 in Asia run and built that way. All of last years TCS winning MO5's look nothing like what we run.

I still might try it out and see if I like it or not. It is the way to go if you run mini at TITC.

Later,

Calvin.

Why are the TCS rules in Japan so different than every where else? Some of the Japanese cars look like swiss cheese! I was under the impression that TCS rules were like ROAR rules.

That is Japan for you.

In the past there has been:

* Arguments regarding some racers motors doing excessive rpm

* banning of traction compound but some local drivers were leaving black lines on the carpet but nothing was said

Where have you found pics of the Japanese cars? I've been trying to find them today, but no luck.
