Rm01 did fairly well in San Antonio for round 3 of the Texas electric on-road series (Texas eos). This was a large nicely prepped parking lot track that I have never been to before. Ran the rm01 with option front and rear tires, Tom's body and driver figure all day long. Stock 12th scale was one of the larger classes with a healthy a and b main. Put the rm01 into the triple a mains where it finished 5th, 5th and 4th! All the other cars where crc's and associated's. had a ball driving it and it got plenty of interest among the racers in all classes.

Yes, car worked great with option rears on this surface. Car had a nice balance and rotated well but was stuck enough that I could put the hammer down! Used one set all weekend long for practice, qualifying and mains. Still have enough diameter left to run a couple more rounds. The asphalt was pretty abrasive. Rubber sedan and f1 tires where coming off the track balled up like 1:1 scale race tires do.

Here's an interesting vintage Porsche Le Mans car on RC Mart. The Porsche 936. Any word whether or not this would work? Or is it for the non-pan Tamiya 1/12 cars?

Its only 159mm wide so I am not certain what it would fit...

That body was sold for the RM-01,yes it the old body but is made to fit the RM-01 and included some extra parts just to make it mountable for the RM-01.

Just ordered an RM01x and was looking for input on tires/wheels. Also, is the RM01x compatible with most other 1/12 bodies? I would love the Tamiya Mazda 787b, but I would want to get the CHARGE livery for the 1991 LeMans winning #55 car.
Thanks,
Scott

The RM-01 is on the narrow side of 12th, so most any standard body will work

Enjoy the build

To run at TQ with the RM01x, is it necessary to do the front end mods in order to run Jaco / CRC foams?

Or are Tamiya foams just as good and they are all you need?

I'm thinking of this, let me know if this would be ok at TQ:
Chassis: RM01X
Body: TR-12 or CRC R8c black art body
ESC: Tekin with booster or LRP SXX StockSpec V2
Servo: s9650
Foams: Not sure?
Tx: Mylaps
I would recommend the 1/8" axle set, with Jaco Black/Yellow tires
They are lighter & pre-mounted, simple
Ride height is same, and you can true the Jaco wheels on the truer at TQ

You will also need to pickup a set of (4) 1/8" x 5/16" Bearings

You will not be disappointed with this car by simply adding the option axles and jacos. Just got 2nd place with mine today and it's the standard rmo1 kit. Fast lap was within hundredths of a second to the crc of AWD that won. Just mount up the jacos, put your favorite body on and give them hell!
