Coming indoor season our club is starting with a M chassis competition on medium grip carpet. So Right now I considering buying a M06 instead of a M05 chassis.

After reading this thread the first hopups that comes to mind are;

Ballbearings
TRF dampers
M05 balldif
Super grip tires (rear) with regular inlays
M grip tires ( front) with regular inlays
CVD's

So any suggestions?

I would think the M grip fronts would have way too much grip for carpet being used as a front tire. Most run the Type A slick as it gives plenty of steering but is nice and smooth in the corners.

Youre on the right track. Steering arms? You can get away with stock plastic by adding bearing and shimming.. But ultimately you will probably want them.

The rest of the upgrades would be more bling than anything else

Thank you both for the reply. very helpfull
Lot of clubmembers tell me to stay away from the M-06. Because this chassis has a lot of issues to solve, one of them being stability of the car!! In other words, it will be a costly enterprise if you want to start to race with this chassis.

personally I look at it as a challenge

To be blunt, they're ignorant. Most people in RC just follow the herd. The herd drives the M05 so that's what they advise you.

The difference between the two is that it takes skill and thought to drive the M06. You just need to get the hang of it.. You can't gun it into a turn and turn the wheel like an M05.

Yep! My next project is a M06 L for a unusual body. I can't wait!

Until then my XV01 is sweet. I've only seriously crashed it once in its first week

Took a while, but now I'm finally able to reply. But any ways I agree, Like I said I see it as a challenge to drive the M06 chassis... and even better win the competition with the M06 chassis

I too have an xv-01, and have thought about buying a m-chassis cuz they look so fun. I think it's hard to choose since the m05 and m-06, after seeing all the "herd" reviews about understeer, and the like, I really want to see how it drives myself. It's like a 2wd buggy configuration. Which seems sweet.

It's like playing certain characters in video games, some are easier than others. But the harder characters take more time to learn, but pay off in the end.

I just can't justify dropping monies on another vehicle that I'd end up upgrading to the max.

That means I'd have to share time between two cars, and that just leads to less focus. Okay you've temped me enough, I'm out, catch me in the xv-01 threads.

I'm modeling a rear-engine RWD car, that's why I want an M06. On that note I've had an M05 before. It's fun because it's 'wrong wheel drive'. That said I bought it purely to comply with my former local tracks reg that it be a FWD mini (m-chassis).

I did sell it right after the race class/track was gone. Same with the F103... cuz I really hate solid axle.

M06 definitely doesn't drive like a rear motor buggy. I know where you're coming from and I thought the same years ago but I soon realised...wrong. Good car and on the right track devastatingly effective but the optimum performance window is relatively narrow. Now we only run 06s for giggles, the competitive guys run the 05v2. And the XV01...had one, did nothing for me at all, I chalked it up as one of Tamiya's (frequent) answers to a problem that never existed.

I came close to buying an M05 and then decided to correct the wrong wheel drive and bought an MF-01X

Where Rallye classes exist, the XV01 dominates, that's Tamiya's answer to the problem.

I almost bid on an M05 (for conversion to M06) this week until eWippler came thru with a new-in-bag chassis only M06. If you're bidding against me [deity] help you
