When is Tamiya going to make new Bodies for the M06?
M06 must be the Redheaded step child of Tamiya family!

Misplaced? Not really...I thought it was accurate and fitting.

Most everything of value I've learned was/is from old cotton-tops - greybeards we call them. Never poke a sleeping greybeard.

Greybeard

An aging [unix hacker] type with an impressive [unix beard] that has now turned grey. Originally a young [neckbeard], these [Gandalf] resembling [curmudgeons] are renowned for their knowledge of theoretical computer science, arcane unix and complete inability to use a remotely contemporary computer.

/dev/null?

The null device is typically used for disposing of unwanted output streams of a process, or as a convenient empty file for input streams. This is usually done by redirection.

The /dev/null device is a special file, not a directory, so one cannot move a whole directory into it with the Unix mv command. The rm command is the proper way to delete files in Unix.

This concept is roughly equivalent to the NUL: or just NUL device of CP/M, DOS and Windows, the \Device\Null of Windows NT and its successors, the NIL: of Amiga operating systems, and the NL: of OpenVMS. In Windows Powershell, the equivalent is $null.

If I've offended in anyway, that was not my intent. I have a way of complementing that might appear as insults - they surly are not.

Are you looking for bodies specifically by Tamiya or just options. Presently you can use any of these:

210 mm bodies:

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...3&I=LXASUE&P=K
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXAKLY&P=7
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXZET5&P=Z

Also all of the ABC Hobby bodies are 210 mm as well:

These are 225 mm

For those of us in the US. the M06R is officially discontinued. Tamiya USA exhausted their inventory and has decided to not re-order the kit.

I inquired if there will be another "hop'd up kit" coming. Haven't heard back yet.

Oohhh.....Yeah......Aaaaaa..........What?
I'm lucky to just find you in this magic box! But thanks for trying to explain whatever it is you were trying to explain. ....Or you sure wrote a lot of words just to mess with an old guy! Humorous either way. I'll just jump back to C.T. social commentary.....

I wouldn't mind a "modernized" version of the M-05 that would allow square packs. Mini's, in all their different iterations, are fun to drive.

Hi,the body is actually quite old and the old Carson body, which is very much related to Tamiya here in Germany. So its almost Tamiya.
But its cool, that its still in production. Ive still to paint one for my old retired Race-M04L...

Hi Joel,
congrats to Porsha and you for that great result!
That looks so cool already, and just the beginning of the chase, I bet!
Keep on that good work, and keep us informed here!

I got yesterday my M06R kit, just had to get it for the special parts!
I will swap them on my M06 Pro next week, and do a comparison to my actual setup. I plan to race 2 heats with the M06R setup and compare the times to my actual setup from 2 other heats.
Im really curious on the outcome of this. Will not change tires or other stuff, to get a reasonable comparison...

BR,
Matthias

That's fantastic. Are you running on carpet?

Also are your running 1 or 2 degree rear upright?

Also it looks like you're running the standard TRF shocks, not the Mini/short TRF correct?

Great!

Just wondering what kind of Motorcooler you are using. i am still searching for a functional cooler for the M-06 chassis...
The R1Wurks one, which was mentioned in the very beginning of this long thread , is not available any longer.


@ Matthias: same here i just upgraded my M-06 Pro with the optional R Parts *lol* but it seems that it was worth that upgrade , because the car was really good during my lasr race...

I also just rebuilt my spare M06 Pro last night with the "R" brass weight and lower link. I built it with 1 degree toe in on rear and 2 degree in spare box. My next race is in two weeks, so will have to see how it performs.

With the added rear weight / traction, I wonder of i will have to soften the front to add steering.
