Could be. What's the Tamtech tire size?

He does say they are Tamtech tyres, he then used 60D inserts as they are harder/firmer then the Tamtech ones.

I think thats what it says anyway, I really need to study Japanese again.

Anyone tried the tam54000 Aluminum Damper Set (4) on their M05 chassis?

Yes, we almost all use them at our local club. THey are more resistant and can be adjust/setup more easily than stock plastic ones.

okay, so the Tamiya website should have listed m05 as compatible chassis then.
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=54000

The other m chassis alum damper set is $14 less (MSRP), http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=84118

Have your club members used them?

They are both the same part except that the black version is a limited edition run and does not come with springs hence the reason it is cheaper!
If you really want the black you can get the spring set seperately (84117 TRF Damper Spring Set (Short/White)).

Hi all.

Cesar here, from Spain.

Glad to see that Tony Gray showed one of my cars here. Thank you...

Just a question about this/other mini thread...

Did you see any thread about special Mini prototypes?

I plan to show you all something unique and I want to do it at the proper thread.

Thanks.

Good info. I forgot the picture didn't show any springs for the black damper set.

I think it's crazy. Keep up the good work!

Is this being built for top speed runs?

How is the M06 to drive compared to the M05?

Im not talking about laptimes. just pure driving experience..

would you rather drive your M05 alone all day over the M06 alone all day?

Only run M06 a few times but I like M05 better, why ,
being front wheel drive some times you get taped on the rear on in field,
with front wheel drive you just keep your finger on the throttle and keep going if some one did that to rear wheel drive M06 it can spins you out.
We race mostly on carpet and the main car racing at my local UK carpet tracks is M05 outside the M03 seems to be the fastest.
Still early days for M06 and once drivers learn to setup M06 better then maybe it could be better.
Still think a M05 racing a M06 on the infield the M05 would come off better if knocked from behind
( a good mate of mine calls them Love taps ).
This is just my view and a lot of RC drivers will shoot me down for saying this.
I think racing Tamiya M05,M03,M06, I know a lot slower than our RC Touring cars but more like full size British Touring Car,
Only front wheel or rear wheel drive, you can race bumper to bumper, side by side lap after lap.
And great fun.
Ben
