I thought the Silvia S15 would be a comical body, but seems pretty good looking after all...



Wanted some speed... Hobbywing turbo esc with 13.5T brushless and lipo...



My setup... for testing next weekend.

yes i can confirm, it does not look bad at all
finally i love the S15 body too...

nice position for the esc...
was this planned, or just because of missing space?.

cheers

I would like to put esc opposite the servo, but wires were too short

Ha ha,
simple explanation Joel!
As everyone is knowing here your genius and love for details,
no one would expect too short wires as explanation!

You seem to want to push the M06 to the limit with this engine?
Guess itīs just for fun racing?
I wonder what will happen when you push the throttle!

Keep us updated please!

BR,
Matthias

what's the general consensus on diff builds? go with dry gears and the stock M06 gear diff? It's for high traction indoor carpet.

I just use the Tamiya stock gear diff with the kits stock grease, also greased the gears like advised in the manual.
I drive on a high traction indoor carpet also.

Default batteries for stock class racing

Hi guys,

what batteries would you prefer for stock class racing.
So all of us have the same slow motor etc...
it is important to have a lot of punch , served by the batteries

i know Noel had some comparisons a time ago...
what batteries would you prefer nowadays, to be the fastest with your M-06

At the moment i tested some
Vampire, MuchMore , GM Lipos...
But not sure which one is state of the art....
For me, even 2500maH would be more than enough, because only about 1000 are used during a Main...
But also 7000 Batteries will be ok, the Punch is the important thing

Thanks for your thoughts
Flo

I tried:

5100/40c (338gm) - 7.78v avg discharge voltage
3300/35c (210gm) - 7.61 avg discharge voltage

Similar lap times on tamiya slow motor racing (28T). I guess the 0.2v was not enough to compensate for the extra 128gm.

But there are strong batteries that are very light that should make the difference. e.g.

Fantom 5300/65c (270gm) - 7.85v

thanks,
sounds interesting.
unfortunately i did not found an european reseller for fantom so far.
let's see where i can find one.

one additional question about your measurement.

did you just drive e.g. 6 minutues and then measure the voltage of your battery ?

thanks

From fully charge, I discharge using lightbulbs (around 14 amps), take voltage measurements every 15 seconds for around 5 minutes. Then take the avg voltage.

Finally got to test the M06 short wheelbase. I love it, much better than my medium wheelbase Miata. Fun to powerslide the corners, with back end drifting a little, rotating the car very quickly.

+ YouTube Video

Video had a lot of background noise, so I put music instead.

I used to run my m06 with a tamiya renault alpine body, I found that it was very fast, not much steering and definitely very little rear grip or stability.

I tried some other shells, such as team titan's Volvo c30, abc hobbies lancia stratos and some others.

I noticed that the shells with wings work best for m06, shells with gurney flaps also worked pretty decently. Shells with no aero downforce made the car very unstable for road racing. They were great for rally though.
