Cool where did you get the diff from and how much?

Also how wide are the slots on the out drive, it looks like blades will fit on the universals?

Ordered it in parts from 3racing website since complete unit is still not available.
In parts the diff cost 27USD, and shipping was 5.77USD. Diff oil i bought from rcmart, right now it's filled with #5000 green Tamiya diff oil, partnumber 53758.

The slots in outdrives fits the blades like M05 balldiff.

Very happy with how this diff works!

Top Gear top tip...

Use 10mm Tamiya shim set, partnumber 53588 to center the diff.
Tamiya diff's are 21mm and 3racing Sakura FF is 20mm.....

Strange though that I gave one to the mini master Dennis and he said it didn't fit whatsoever without complete modification

From what I can see the tamiya diff is closer to 24mm wide between the bearings. You need far more shims

Yeh, just checked myself.

My M05 balldiff is 23mm. I was over excited when i put it in and did not pay attention. Adding shims outside of bearings 1mm each side and 0.5mm on each will center it nicely... And give lots of area for bearing to sit on.

i have a question earlier on another thread but I will ask again here... Is it still worth to buy M05 pro kit over the newer M06 pro kit?

My heart telling me FWD is still a better choice because of my f104 pro experience (RWD)..

M06 is not proven to be faster or better yet. But many people have said it's harder to drive than the M05 pro. May come down to driving preference. I plan to practice with both on carpet at the TCS race this weekend in CT. Will race the faster one. Though I have a feeling the M06 will be at a disadvantage due to the TCS spec tire rule and not being able to stagger the compounds front-to-rear like the kit suggests/provides.

Front wheel drive in general is easier to drive than rear wheel drive. The gear ratio is same for M05 and M06 with 60mm diameter tires. I had M03 and M04 for TCS North American finals several years ago, the lap time were pretty close. Top speed was a bit quicker on the M04 because the tallest pinion gear was 1 tooth higher than M03. However, I found cornering speed to be a bit slower than M03.

Hi, I need help with a good setup for an M05 with Tamiya Sport Tuned motor on a low grip outdoor ashpalt track. The track isn't very technical. Its made up of 4 hairpins, and 1 high speed sweeper.

Locals say: Super Grips, 30wt oil all round, Springs Frt-Blue Rr-Yellow. But this just doesn't sound right so was hoping for reassurance or other solid options

help!!!!!

Shock oil Frt/Rr =
Shock Springs Frt/Rr =
Droop (Shock spacers Frt/Rr) =
Tires Frt/Rr =
Toe in/out =
Anything else???

Thx....

Might be that denniz is still using M03s, he has made a diff from out of a nitro car. Im not sure if he had it in the car at summernats. But he showed it to us.

Maybe he didnt want to file it down?

Seeing you are only using a sports tuned motor you may want to start playing with some really grippy tires like spice and see if you can get around without traction rolling.

Caltek1,
Yeah I looked through that site but couldn't find any setup's specifically for the M05...

Mango,
I forgot to mention it's for Tamiya Spec racing so only Tamiya tires allowed...
