@ Evoracer:

Thanks for the compliment. Its the std. Tamiya Beetle body from the M02/M04.
Sitting now on my M06. A few posts ago I mentioned it and put the picture I have now as avatar.

Matthias

Not sure of when, but Tamiya does show a part number for an m06 with the Alfa shell.

Ok good.. Appart from the fact that Tamiya should stick to propper mini bodies.. I know the alfa is small car in RL but seriously..
Its such a crash in style.. Better of with a NSU or beetle or... any suggestions? BMW 1-series?

A Opel perhaps.. they made a "hatchback" with RWD
The Early Kadetts where stunning looking and small.

Opel Ascona, Manta, Ford Escort RS Mk.1 Mexico, RS Mk.2 Brenda, Fiat Abarth 131 and Talbot Sunbeam Lotus would be nice as well.

Thumbs up

Hi all,

I've been following this thread for a while now before and after getting my M06. I noticed there has been no mention of Tamiya's BMW M Roadster bodyshell, so I though I would show that it also fits the M06. I managed to pick up one of these shells up from eBay, and you will see the obvious reason I wanted it from the later pics!

We have been experimenting with touring car tyres (the M Roadster kits originally came with larger size wheels than other M chassis kits), so once we find the best tyre combination for my local club I'll put them on the original M Roadster wheels I managed to get a hold of. Please excuse the small mini wheels in the pics!

The body fits over the chassis fine but we had to use some older rear body posts from, I believe an M02, to allow the rear to sit low enough and to line up with the predrilled body and aerial holes.

Here are my pics of the shell, enjoy

Edit: Well apparently I can't post links until I get make more posts

I'm deciding on what to get an m05 or m06, never had a tamiya mini before which chassi do you guys prefer and which one is more better to drive? Also which one has more steering in corners?

Default M06 pro foam and tamiya rubber setup on carpet

hi guys

i am little messy confuse to get grip and control on carpet surface using tamiya radial rubber tires : S grip and M Grip

I am quite satisfied setup using foam tire. The car very fast and very controlable, consistent and easy to drive using 13 turn BRUSHLESS....i give comprehensive detail setup , Hope anyone can give me great feed back to tamiya ruber tire setup for me

here are my foam tire setup on M06carpet surface

MWB TAMIYA MIATA eunos roadster
track very small and technical....wide 2 meter only per line and lenght only 16 m, the surface medium grip M05 no problem at all using front m grip and rear m grip tires

the best i can do
front
tire : GQ tire shore 40 truer up to 59mm smaller more thumbs up
shock: touring TRF (need long shaft )
camber : 2"
ride height : 4.5
rebound : put 3 black oring rubber
red blader on shock cap
oil: 25 wt losi (i need fast rebound)
piston : 3 hole
blue spring short old m chasis
thin wheel spacer 4mm
std knuckle front hole use
0 toe

rear

tire : GQ tire shore 37 truer up to 61mm ( shore 35 if no one use tire traction on circuit ( cut 30 mm tire to 26mm using drill and hobby knife cutter)
shock: touring TRF (need long shaft for travel shaft especialy rear)
camber : 3"
ride height : 5.5
rebound : put 1 black oring rubber
red blader on shock cap
oil: 25 wt losi (i need fast rebound)
piston : 2 hole
grey super hard tamiya touring spring need more hard pressure to make rear sticky
wheel spacer 6mm
alum rear tamiya upper 2 degree (m04 option)
2 degree toe
BEVEL GEAR ...A LOT AW GREASE or ta 03 ball diff (loose) ...or new tamiya ball diff

motor 13 Turn ez RUN
PINION 16 t
BAtTERY TEAM ORCA 6000 60 C


I was use tamiya rubber combine s and m grip ...but not satisfied of the result even i am using slow motor tamiya lightly tune 28 t

here are the setup.....
MWB mx 5 miata

Front

tire : s grip with hard inner (tamiya) ON OUR CARPET TRACK M GRIP MORE GRIP THAN S GRIP, SO I PUT S GRIP ON THE FRONT
shock : touring TRF long shaft
camber : 2"
ride height : 4.5
rebound : put 2 black oring rubber ( need more travel to get grip)
red blader on shock cap
oil: 40 wt losi

the car cannot push to the limit and unconstant to drive......i am not satisfied

uneasy to get grip using tamiya radial tire.....if you put inner more inside the tire....you feel grip only couple laps onlY. I PUT TAMIYA SLICK A AT FRONT ....to much steering as well

ANYONE SUCCEED setup using low quality tamiya radial tire?????


PLEASE SHARE with me I SAW TIRE IS THE GOLDEN KEY....How come tamiya made very bad tire for TCS race????


thanks

Hi,

Im also not running MWB, but LWB.
But maybe I can give some input, as Im also sorting out problems with spec tires. I made the same experience: on some special carpets, the m-Grips stick better than the S-ones. On tarmac the S-grips cant be beaten, and forget the m-grip in the rain. (like ice)

I always use the hard foam inserts f/r and try in the meantime to use te same tire front/rear, to get more steering and to keep my stuff simple.
On the setups, I went from kit to very soft on a TEC race, now getting back to the harder side on our outdoor track. Currently running on S-Grips all around.
At the weekend I made good experience to reduce travel and droop in the rear, which stabilized the car a lot.
I run the Carson Cup machine with 3000 Nimh, Lipo just for training.
Well, for sure my setup is not 100% perfect at the moment, but maybe you can get some input from it. As I noticed this evening, italso works in the rain, which is always a good sign to me.
I was able to really push it to the limit, and on some 180 curves to throw it around by the brake, to reduce curve radius...

But youre right, with a little more power than 540, its way more difficult to setup the RWD. So I appreciate this thread and the enthusiasts here a lot, lets sort out some good setups together!

BR from Germany,
Matthias

thanks mathias realy appreciate your great setup on tarmac....on our trophical country which humidity and temp very high using slick A tamiya on the rear and hard inner as well

I try LWB on carpet ...the car can flow ....but cannot push to the limit....SWB much better...but realy upset what tamiya tire at MO6 pro
in our club carpet circuit....M05 using F/R M grip realy easy to setup...we can use 28t tamiya motor or black can and the car can handled those motor
