Keep in mind that the TA03 ball diff is about 15 years old. The M05 is identical in design to TRF416.

For the gear diff, someone should look into the possibility of using the plastic gears from TA06. They're much lighter and sufficiently durable, especially for a Silvercan motor

Hi Raman, donīt know if you refer to the 3 Racing gear, but this is already quite light with 4 spider gears inside made of plastic. Probably the Ta06 parts can be made to fit, but itīs just not needed and wouldnīt make any weight difference.
For the serial gear diff, maybe the planetary gears fit, but not the dish gears on the outdrives, because of the different attachment method?

But just thinking, probably I did not get your intention.

BR,
Matthias

I wasn't referring to 3Racing diff. Meant it as an experimental option for stock diff. As you know at some club races as well as TCS you can not run non Tamiya hop ups

Ah, okay.
Now itīs clear. But would Tamiya allow Ta06 inner parts in a M-gear diff,
if they would fit?

Thanks for the explanation. I hope Tamiya will sell a sealed gear diff some day also for the Minis...

Technically no. However if tech decides to look into the gear box, they can see if the Tamiya gears are being used. I doubt they would open up the diff and have the diff oil spill every where to check for gears lol.

Spent around 6 hours at the track today tuning the M06. My daughter drove around 400 laps. She went up and down the stand 20 times to test 20 different setups.

First runs were 23 seconds. After 6 hours...

Her last run of 8 laps were 19.9, 20.2, 20.4, 20.0, 20.2, 20.3, 20.2, 20.2. Like a robot.

That is really awesome! Good work Dad!

That sounds very promising for the next race!
She seems to be really keen on driving! Sheīs a real race-girl!
What was Dadīs plan, Joel? Tires, shocks, fine adjustments? Guess you discovered some more M06 tuning knowledge with this consistent lap times....

BR,
Matthias

Default Suspension weights

Hiya folks,

Anyone tried the m06r suspension hub weights?

What are the effects and does it work for outdoor Tarmac?

Do please share your thoughts.

-Alexander

I have a m06 that's been used as a TAC fighter, then re-built as a rally car. Was super fun! Thinking of converting it back for on-road play.

If you look 2 pages ago we started some discussion on the weights.
Some of us are still testing, but most of us had the impressions they help.
Remember that you cannot get them as single parts, only in an R-kit.
Probably they will never be for sale as single parts, as the R is a limited edition kit. If you want to rebuild your existing M06 kit, the weights are an expensive tuning part.

BR,
Matthias

Tomorrow is race day. Hard work of practice and setup done. Now just hoping for some good racing luck.
