My M06 versus F1 cars. Pretty good if the track is big and flowing

I'm sure that it makes a difference based on what surface you're racing on.
At our local carpet track there are some guys that are good enough to be competitive with an M03 or M05, but for the most part, the fast cars are the M06s.

Agree, especially on asphalt

I hope you post some updates next time,

Yes, I'll post when it's nearly done. The 930 Tamiya shell would work easily as a 225mm M06 build, just use spacers to make it marginally longer. I may one day to that with my M06. And as far as offset, just find wider wheels, there are a few options out there. Plus with rear engine, wider tires are great

You're running on indoor asphalt? Concrete?

I am so grateful that we have an indoor carpet track now.
I hope I never will have to run outside on asphalt lol. It's so much kinder in the cars.

That's great, run every day. People sometimes take for granted and only realize when track is gone

great video,
hmm, ..since I have an M05, maybe i'll just have to pick up an M06 to see for myself.
I have tons of spare upgrades so can get it to a "pro" version / race ready easily.

Since you run and race an M05..you know what the most important functional upgrades are.

I have not tried the 3 racing diff.. I have always gone with the ball diff. I have yet to service it after my first build. With 21.5 I doubt I will need to any time soon.

Yes, AND in looking at the M06 and M06 pro ...they run about $150 and $220 respectively. I looked at the manual and priced out the parts I'd need and it only comes to about $75 ...I have a ton of spare upgrades from my M05 that will all fit the M06 just fine. I think if I bought a kit i'd throw out everything but the chassis parts ...I have tons of ball bearings (I am particular about the brand I use), I'd use the big bore Tamiya shocks for the M class, Double Cardin axle joints, and I have all the TAmiya aluminum uprights. I can pick up a titanium screw set for about $30 ...So I may just put an M06 together w/o purchasing a kit. Being that I'll race this I will want to use very specific parts that aren't included in the kits.

I have a lot of reading to do here on this thread,
Quick question though, ...I race F1's and maybe I shouldn't compare the M06 to an F1, but w/ both being a rear drive ...I tend to run my F1's diff loose. Is the same for the M06? I ask because I want to know if everyone runs the stock gearing or the "ball diff" ...w/ the M05 most get the ball diff (I think its a TA03 or something like that) and you tighten the heck out of it. You kind of mimic a TC car (fixed diff in front loose in rear). Yet w/ the M06 I am a little confused here.

thanks!

The M06 is usually ran with a diff much looser than what you'd run in an M05. Also, DCJ is redundant on a RWD car, I'd just use normal universals.

so would the stock "gear" diff be sufficient?
Ah, good to know about the DCJ's !

Question to your question, will you be running on carpet or asphalt?

The stock diff has very limited tuning. Good substitute is the spec R.

I use the M05 ball diff, it's lighter and much better design. I have always ran my ball diff tight and it seems to work for me, especially on carpet.

With some AW grease the stock gear can be made to work well, though as Raman said, other options may be a better choice. The ball diff might be a better option if only to allow easier adjustment without pulling the car apart.
