I think release is imminent, saw some photos of spare parts already from a hobby shop in HK.

With the low profile chassis it would be cool to see some old school sports car road race bodies like a MG Midget/Austin Healy Sprite, Triumph Spitfire type.

That 914/6 looks really good.

Default Got it!

Picked up my M06 Pro today, seems like a very competitive car with all the tunabilities. Also, it came with a set of stainless steel suspension shaft as bonus package...not bad. Can't wait to build.....

How would RR be like compared to previous MR layouts of the M-chassis?

The RR will actually benefits this car. The M04's MR lay out made the rear end too light. Many ended up adding weights to the rear bumper to keep the rear end planted.

I got to pick up and look at the M-06 Pro today.



1 It's low.
2 Comes with proper hinge pins
3 The rear hinge pins are '1-way' I mean that only the back of the car end takes an eclip. The other end is molded as a metal ball stud to mount the shock absorber
4 The steering CRANKS are still black plastic. The post tops are the blue hop up.
5 The steering cross bar is blue metal but it is new and different from the M05. Not interchangeable.
6 The stock angle of the steering arms practically horizontal. Nice.

7 The battery compartment is long. There is a screw in base/bumper that can be moved to make the holder the correct length for batteries.
8 The above is due to: the chassis is not one piece ! Up to the end of the servo place it is one piece, after than it is a second large part all the way to the back of the car. This is how the S,M,L chassis sizes are accomplished. There is a third circa 1cm piece that fits in between. Different overlapping screw holes in both main parts let you choose the length you want. It's good as it means the rear suspension arms can stay the same.

9 The front and rear upper arms are adjustable, and both f&r mount on HORIZONTAL ball nuts inboard.
10 The angle of the rear upper adjustable arms to where they mount inboard below the shock tower is LARGE. Looks rather too angled to me, maybe easy to pop off in a bang?

11 The left gearbox side that also covers the motor does this only to screw the rear bumper into. It does not support the motor at all. So I am struggling to understand the benefit of this side part being offered as a blue metal 'hop up'.
12 The mounting of the rear body post towers is two separate parts. This means 2 places causing potential body post movement.
13 Front end is very solid and the battery area does not extend under the steering cross bar. There is space here to mount a transponder down on the bottom of the chassis, and thus near the front of the car.

I could bend the chassis a bit. Not alot but enough to be slightly disappointed.

I couldn't weigh it but there was a M05 next to it and I cannot say for sure if it is lighter or heavier. Because of the motor hanging out back it was giving me mind freaks that it felt much heavier but I don't trust my hand scales I hope it is the same weight or lighter (though this felt unlikely).

It's a nice chassis. However I was disappointed that it didn't feel lighter and that I could flex it. I do feel the M04 is a better car, but since its not TCS legal its of no use. That is still the best M chassis car imo.


Best part of all for me : the wide flat underbody. Finally an M chassis with some decent aero underneath

Take the flex out of the chassis and it will handle bad. That flex is what makes the M chassis cars work. Make them stiffer and they dont handle as well.

Same idea applies to the FF03. It has flex and works well
