Running the 3 racing gear diff and it sounds fine but just wasent sure I had it round the right or does it not matter. Facing from the rear I have the blue alu side and the spacer on the right. Is this correct ?

Hey guys - I know there pages and pages of info here on the M06 but I was wondering if you could tell me what the typical class rules are for mini....I live in Ontario Canada and they only race mini at some tracks.

WHAT ARE THE MOTOR RULES?
WHAT ESC ARE WE ALLOWED TO USED?
WHAT TIRES & BODIES ARE LEGAL?

Please point me in the right direction!

Thanks

John

Here are the Canadian TCS rules for Mini John, taken from http://www.tamiya.ca/tcs%20rules.html . Lou's allows the 13T brushless combo as well as silver can though. Lou might even sell that brushless combo. I don't know for sure though.

1 - Any Tamiya M05 & MO6 chassis car.
2 - Tamiya Hop-Ups allowed, no chassis lightening allowed
3 - Tamiya Silver can 540J motor. (Item 53689).
4 - Spec Battery rules apply
5 - Tamiya rubber tires, inserts, and wheels only
6 - Stuffing tires with inserts to create a "ballooned" tire, and producing overdrive is not legal. Tire diameter limit will be limited to 60mm
7 - It is legal to use the maximum pinion gear size on all front-drive and rear drive Mini cars. I.E. 20-tooth on the M05 and 21-tooth on the M06. M06 is a 19T pinion.
8 - Any Tamiya plastic or aluminium hop-up damper may be used
9 - Batteries may be taped in, in lieu of using the supplied battery holder
10 - Any Tamiya M-Chassis bodies may be used, no matter what drive there real life counter parts are. Bodies must be the 60D tires size though

Hi John, Our mini rules for WCICS (Western Canadian Indoor Championship Series) that relate to your questions are:

1 and 2, We run a spec brushless system made by Orca. We had them supply us with their Orca Q Spark ESC and motors built to run at 2200kv, which is about where a non-tweaked silver can would be.

3 WCICS has a Tamiya only tire/wheel rule, but bodies are open to any manufacturer, as long as the body was expressly designed to fit a mini. FWD or RWD are ignored in this rule.

I hope this helps. I know it's not Ontario specific, but at least it's Canadian, right?

Jim

Since I know you are mainly asking for Nicholas to run in the SOS series, here are the SOS series rules for mini:

Mini - 6 Minute Qualifiers, 10 Minute Mains

- Tamiya TCS Rules except for the following:
- Any body designed for M-Chassis use
- Orion or Reedy 2400 mah LiPo for 3000 mah NIMH or lower
- A spec power system will be used. The only motor and ESC allowed will be the Hobbywing EZRUN-35A ESC and the 13T@3000KV motor. These have been rebadged by other manufacturers and they are legal as well. If you are unsure about the combo you want to use, please post in the Mini Brushless Thread for confirmation!
- Handout motors and brushed motors will still be allowed.
- Spec pinion sizes for Brushless at Action will be 16T for M03/M05/M06, 17T for M04. Using brushed motor, 20T for M03/M04, 21T for M04.

Default M06 / Mini rules

Thank you guys ! I appreciate all your input and information....I do have to make some purchases and I'm just trying to make an informed decision about a car and a class I know nothing about. They don't race mini much at Lou's, or in St.C so I have to go by what people suggest.

Yes - I posted questions on RCTECH and our local forums to get a feel for the general rules. It seems each club is doing different rules...ORCA motor ESC combo vs Hobbywing ESC motor combo etc....are they both the 13t sensorless??? Locked timing etc?

It still boils down to same old problem that this sport cost alot of money! Especialy when I'm trying to race a certain class and my son wants to be invloved too. My son has done VTA and it's full of hacks. I don't want him to learn that way! We tried toruing car but he kept breaking the car's front end and it was frustrating for both of us. I thought perhaps 1/12 but at this race last weekend it proved that doesn't even work with other drivers.

I'm just trying to keep costs down by not having to buy MORE gear just to race a class that is suppose to promote the sport and provide an even playing field. I have an old silver canned Mabuchi 540 and GTX ESC that I hope will be fine at most tracks.

If not it might be time to rethink the whole RC thing. This sport is suppose to be fun - not stressful - or come with deep pockets - but it does so I have to pick and choose!

it depends what your definition of fun is.

fun can be had in any heat of rc, even with a 10 year old car, and getting hacked to hell. if you want to win races, its a different kind of fun.

If you're looking fun, cheap and durable, it's hard to beat an m-03. They are technically out of production but there are loads of parts still on the market.

The HW 13t runs about 3300kv and is equivalent to a Tamiya black can motor. The Orca combo can be had at the same rating, but we run a spec 2200kv motor (about 17t) that's a dead match for a silver can.

If you've got a silver can set up, that's the best place to start. It's torque curve is much more controllable for newer/younger drivers.

I have been approved to run the silver can motor with any brushed ESC - so I'm all good now! Thank you !

Does anyone have a list of available bodies for the M06? Looking for something for the M version.

Thanks

The HPI cup racer bodies fit as well. Just make you have clearance at the back for the motor. Some colt bodies fit, but I think they're all short wheelbase.

Also, Team Blue Groove make a lot of really cool stuff that nobody else does, including mid wheel base versions. (and they're cheaper than Tamiya.)

It's a pity they don't come with decals. Can't seem to find them on the site either. Is it sold anywhere?
