What options for SWB body are there?
I'm current using the Renault Alpine but fancy something else.

Thanks

You actually have a greater option on short wheelbase. You can run the HPi cup racer Porsche 911 rsr, Lancia Stratos and all the bodies from abc hobby..

For competitions the Silvia S15 might be the best choice.
If you have to use tamiya bodies in your local TCS...

I am currently building a M06, I know what speedie and motor I will be running.

What do you people recommend servo wise?

I was going to install a savox 1251, that's what I run in my m05 but the m06 isa new beast.

If you plan on installing ESC and receiver on left hand, then I'd install a standard height servo. I'm presently running a Futaba low profile and I ended up adding weight right side to balance out the chassis.

I don't know savox servos by numbers, basically any high resolution digital servo will suffice.

Hey Guys,

I'm thinking of getting a Porsche Turbo RSR Type 934 body for my M-06.

I was wondering if the Tamtech-body would fit? I haven't found anything about the dimensions of that chassis....
http://www.tamiyausa.com/items/radio...urbo-rsr-57101

There's also a Type 934 on a special TA-05 chassis with a WB of 230mm, but I think its width doesn't match...
http://www.tamiyausa.com/items/radio...type-934-49400


I know there's a HPI Porsche body, but that's not the one I'm searching for


Anybody any ideas?

I think the Tamtech is too small. Check the HPI cup racer thread, I think one person was able to fit it to the cupracer.

The TA05, wheelbase of 230 is close to M06, M is 225 and L is 239. Problem is the body is wide, 190 mm width, the M06 is too narrow.

Well, let's hope Tamiya does some new bodies for the M-Cars then and that the Porsche Turbo RSR type 934 is one of them...

Here is the Cup Racer thread

http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...racer-183.html

I think he ended up using the whale tale on the RSR body

Thanks, looks nice.

But in my opinion using the whale tale doens't make a Type 934...
This may be a bit close-minded, but yeah...

I guess I'll just have to wait an hope.

Hi guys,

I've only run medium wheelbase. Any comments on the Long and Short?

Will be testing the short soon.

Thanks.

Joel
