Default What Tamiya bodies fit the long wheelbase M05 pro?

What Tamiya bodies fit the long wheelbase M05 pro? 239mm. It's very hard to tell based on the tamiya webiste.

Also, should I be running the longest wheelbase? I race on a rather large parking lot track.

I've been searching this thread with words like "setup" and "asphalt". But haven't came across too many setups for the M05. There is a race comming up in two weeks and I would like get it as race ready as I can. The track is outdoor asphalt, with med to high bite traction. Two sweepers with a long front straight and a small technical area in the middle.

I'm running a M05 with a ball diff and TRF shocks. I have super grip radial tire(can only run radial tires). But the biggest factor is going to be shock setup. And that's where I'm at a lose.

Swifty posted his TCS winning setup not too long ago. It should be on the Tamiya website also. I'd give you the link, but my computer skills are deficient. you might do a Sir Swiftalot search.

Ok, go to Tamiyausa.com, on top go to articles, then radio control the very first article In Depth With the 2010 Champs. First setup sheet on top of the Mini pic. is Brandan's. Hope this helps.

If your going to use my setup I would drop down in oil to 40 as Tamiyas track is not so grippy. so higher grip lower oil. Hope that helps. Let me know if you need any help.

RCMart from HK is a good source. Since you're in BC and if you want to order from Canadian source, then you can try that Much Hobby link I sent you before. They're pretty much located right beside Tamiya Canada....

I got my M05 there and most of my local stuff there.

Are there aluminum front C Hubs made by Tamiya available for M05 pro (All I could found was 3racing)?
