In case you didnt notice the outdrives are slightly different between the ball diff and gear diff. Make sure you use the out drives which come with the ball diff.

Hey Mini drivers, I need some help identifying some parts. They're aluminum front upper and lower hinge pin mounts that I found on an old M02L chassis I'm rebuilding to display with an old HPI VW Bus body. Has anyone seen these before and are they a Tamiya Hop Up or most likely something else. I've looked around but I'm coming up blank. Thanks

My M06 and I are arguing right now!! She just won't listen to me. I don't think she likes to be treated rough like my other girlfriend (M05)

The small ones are usually cranky that way !

Here's another ID question for anyone who might know. I bought my M02L Beetle some time ago already completed. Recently I found out the wheel nut covers are not original Tamiya parts. Does anyone know who made them ?

Aftermarket. Tamiya never made those.

Thanks niznai ! Any idea who made them or if they're still available ?? I've checked
3Racing and GPM but no luck yet. No matter though, they're going on my MO2L Beetle as another option piece.

I was kinda hoping the aluminum mounts WERE a Tamiya item. They're a bit unusual as compared to most aftermarket stuff in that they're a dull aluminum finish rather than polished or anodised. Look very much like many Tamiya aluminum pieces.

Those wheel nut covers I just never looked at to close and until I actually looked up the wheel part # I had no idea they weren't part of the package. Clearly there's a logo on them but my old eyes didn't notice them until the camera zoomed in.

Tech Racing makes a lot of aftermarket alloy parts for Tamiya cars. So many, including full conversion kits, that I suspect Tamiya is contracting them for design/development of new products and then whatever Tamiya doesn't want to manufacture themselves is released by Tech Racing as aftermarket upgrades.

Thumbs up

Hey guys,

I don't post on here much.

I just spent a week and half reading through all the posts, well from about post 350 to present.

A WEALTH of information in here! I want to thank all of you that post little hints and tricks.

A lot of the information I've jotted down and am keeping it aside for future reference.

Just wanted to say cheers and thank you very much!
