Yup. Works like a charm. Pre-drilled body post holes, too. Very nice.

I still have the LEDs to do and the rear spoiler. I'm not sure I'm going to add all the 2002 Turbo badging all over the car. I prefer a cleaner look. The front fascia and rear badges tell it all.

Heres my body attachment trick too. I Hate drilling holes in bodies.

Sheet aluminum cut to size, screwed to tapped body posts.

Hook and loop Velcro








I need a smaller pinion. For now its an overpowered monster. 3/4 throttle and it spins. Perhaps locking the diff would help?

I have a 4300kv and 3000kv I can swap in as well.

Nice 2002!

Locking the diff will make a rear drive spin worse.

Default A couple of shell options for your M06

Here's a couple of bodyshell options for your M06, HPI's Datsun 510 and MX-5

After a couple of runs the car is pretty sorted now, with fastest laps in all 3 qualifiers on Friday evening against a strong field of modified M05's. Just need to get some consistency out of the front tyres and my driving

Looks good Paul

Does anyone know if the bodyposts are in the same position as what they'd be on a M03/5?

Hi, they're Sweep rims in the pictures. In this case pre-built SPC-UK's
