Curiosity has driven me to try fitting this body (Tamiya Datsun 280Zx from kit #92213) onto the M06 and guess what it fits like a champ! I'll try the Abarth 1000TCR next few days and will keep you guys posted!

Please post some of your M06's bodies

As stated previously, the Abarth wont fit due to the motor hanging out the back. I use the Alfa Romeo and the Datsun 510.

thank you for the tips...
You can also use those hollow carbon gear shafts (53390)for a M03, the're weight is only 1gr instead of 9gr. It's not much but it's a start
In the manual at step 3 you can see that D2&D12 is attached between the 2 motor plates and they can be removed, it provides some extra weight saving.
And it gives you the opportunity to install a fan on a motor heatsink to cool the motor
What i also do in many casses is that i use shorter screws then mentioned in the manual, this saves also some extra weight
For example in the suspension arms i use 8mm screws instead of 10mm and this can be done with many screws

Why then not just ditch the screws and glue the arms together?

Cause i think that they will break when you have a serious crash and for racing isn't that the best option (I think)

I have the glued the arm together and not a problem for me ....
If you did break ,you are going to get two set parts of arm any ways.
btw I never known anyones ever break an arm off, those part are very forgiving..

I don't think it's a must have item, but if i have the choice i always used an alu motor plate.
And always use the motor spacer inbetween, cause if you don't use that and the motor is getting to hot it could melt down the plastic.

I have all the alu parts installed and the weight should be arround 1300 a 1320gr (with a intellect lipo stickbatterij that doesn't have wires but tubes, weight only 209gr and it's 3800mh with 50C)

I have glued the arms together too, and never broke one yet over the three years racing mini. It is one of the must have mods that Jpn racers use.

Any thoughts as to handling on with the short wheelbase with the M06 for those that have tried it. I have mine built and am going to test the SWB, I used the MWB, since I already had an old Miata body from my 04...Tamiya Miata fits well BTW. Just looking for some insight from folks who may have already done it.

this guy found a setup that works quite well. there is a set up sheet at the bottom of the page. The page is all in Jpn though.

this is for the MWB, but all he did was use the 2deg rear hub for the SWB, and it worked well also.

Crazy glue (CA glue, cyano-acrylate) will do the trick. A drop or two on the mating surfaces, screw it together, wait, take the screw out. Voila!
