finally raced my M06 yesterday on carpet track...with Touring foam tires,i use Kawahara 37 in the front, and 35 in the rear, with 60.5mm of diameter.
i really love this car, the acceleration was really really good, no wheel spin. so much steering. totally M06 is very good.

but have some problem, i burn 3 motors in the race...maybe should add some hi rpm fan in the motor mount to make the motor cooler

Are the black gears weeker than the normal ones? They seem to strip easily on carpet, I replaced with the M03 parts and they have been fine

i'm sure the black gear and white exactly have the same quality.
i crashed a lot on Sunday, the gears are all just fine.

I ran mine the other night for the first time, on carpet with stock tires and setup. Lots of steering and it feels fast but had absolutely no rear grip. Very hard to drive in a straight line with power on without a ton of corrections. Any idea of which way to go with a setup? Softer springs in rear or what? Running MWB with a Datsun 510 body Any way to fit sway bars?

FYI my M03 is hooked up, sure would like the MO6 the same way.

Ran mine Friday and Sunday at 2 different Carpet tracks and t was pretty good, tq'd and won both days. Kit setup with TRF M-chassis shocks. 35wt oil all the way around and soft rear hard front springs. I'd make sure you have the S-grips on the rear and the M's on the front.

The black gears are actually the new reinforced gears that are not sold separately as of yet, but are coming soon.

Default M06 RWD

anyone have any tips for the M06Pro in general?

i would assume you would want to build the diff as 'free flowing and smooth' as possible for RWD.. unlike the thick-packed slow-rotating diffs some assemble for the M03 and M05 FWD.

would like to get this thing handling good on the same type of tire front and rear rather than the soft rear hard front thats included in kit..

Pretty much all mini shells will fit any mini, with exceptions for mechanical bits getting in the way.

EG: On an M-03, the servo sits really high, so a shell with a low hood, like the Alpine might be a challenge. The M-06 needs a little more room in the rear (junk in the trunk!) for the motor, so the Rover Mini shell wouldn't fit.

With all that being said however, it all comes down to the specific shell fitting your chassis. Right now I've got 2 shells made to fit an M-04 that will fit my M-06. One is an HPI Miata (for the RS4 chassis) and the other is the Alfa Giulia.

Just test fit or ask here to see what works.

Jim
