Its a shame Tamiya didn't release the weights as a separate option…

That's a shame, luckily our local track is quite high grip carpet, so shouldn't need them fingers crossed.

Has anyone tried a 239mm body on the M06?

I would love to run a s2000, BMW roadster, boxster, etc body...

Those bodies are hard to come by, but they should work fine…

They're not hard to find, just expensive...


Some even come with a free m04/m02



So is the m06 "L" wheelbase 239mm or 235mm? I've read it both ways


Would they be TCS legal? What about the team bluegroove BMW z3 reproduction body?

Yes, the bodies are by Tamiya and the m chassis cars are designed by Tamiya with 3 wheelbases

What about the team blue groove reproduction BMW z3? It's a tamiya body, but it's not made by tamiya...

Technically it's an unauthorised reproduction, so it's not allowed. However if inspection doesn't notice that its a reproduction, you can get away with it.

I was warned this might happen...



They are multiplying already.

My m06R isn't even here yet and it has a cousin coming from AL already

What tyre setup do people find work well indoor on carpet? Our club hasn't got any rules as to make or size (55 or 60d).

On my previous M06 I ran the treaded Pit Shimizu soft compound tyres, which really well for me, but I was wondering if there are any others I should consider?

Sweeps are very popular in the UK with M05's, but haven't seen anyone run them on the 06's..
