Help please.

On page 14, exploded shock, what is the piece between the shock bottom cap and the small o-ring? I don't seem to have them.

Thanks.

I was kind of amazed at all these rules you guys have these days when I got back into RC last Fall. Tire restriction? TCS rules? Really, for m-chassis class?
Because there are people out there who spend more money on their M-chassis cars than a high end 1/10th TC. But that is their business and their money...

My M05v2 is practically stock except ball diff.

Yeah, I'd like to keep my m-chassis just for fun too. BTW this chassis rocks!

OK thanks. That's what I thought it looked like. Other missing parts I was able to sub for, but these I think I'll have to get. Although it looks like 3Racing parts might work, or just use 3R shocks.

Here's the TOP PN if you need it: PO-PSH002
They also named it 'teflon shock guide' but it has the same PN as the 'damper o-ring holder'.
Did you buy this kit used?

OK thanks for the info. No, new, must have been packed on a Friday afternoon. Very easy to put together aside from the little annoyances. The shock bottom caps are interchangeable with the 3R ones and look identical, so I used the 3R pieces. So far no leaks, but I haven't run it yet. I hope on Wed.

That sucks, especially when you are buying a premium kit from Japan.

Sounds good that you were able to use the 3Racing parts, I saw that TQRacing sells those o-ring holders aka teflon shock guides.


It's been about 2 months now driving my Sabre4WD Mini pretty hard about 5 days out of the week for 4-5 rounds per day. I did some maintenance work yesterday and the only thing that wore out was the outdrive cup on the rear left. Not sure why it was just that one outdrive, but I have spare gear diffs so swapped it out along with the blade and ordered more outdrive cups for next time.

This car is such a joy to drive in my basement track. With the 17.5T and short gearing, thing is a rocket while running cool. None of my other m-chassis compare to this car. Brings a huge smile to my face each time. Most definitely my favorite out of the m-chassis I list in my sig.

yes, they are fun, built well and handle/perform almost as smooth as a full size TC.

Just to correct the matter, the shock teflon guides were in the piston bag, in with a piston set I didn't use. Gotta get new glasses, I think.

Looking forward to trying the car tonight.

Car was built as a mix between the manual and included setup sheet. As you say eR1c, a joy to drive. Unfortunately cut short due to a servo problem. To try and reach our minimum weight, I used a 7000 pack I have, and l/r balance seems to be perfect, altho I still need about 100gms. Fortunately, I have some weights (XRAY I think) with holes in them so I can screw to the middle of the chassis, which also has holes in good positions, therefore should retain the balance. Very happy so far.

I hear people break that bellcrank arm, so you might want to either get a couple of spares or setup the servo horizontally like eR1c's. I believe Dan cut the break point of the factory bellcrank and then put a ball joint at the center of the arm (highlighted area) and connected it to the servo.




I've yet to break the bellcrank, but then I don't really crash my cars on my track too often.

Replace the curved bellcrank with an aluminum one.

I suppose you could, but the factory setup is not that ideal to begin with so I would just do the 'Dan' approach if mine breaks and run out of spares.

BTW, someone mentioned about aluminium steering knuckles bending horribly (not sure if TOP part)... no issue with the bellcrank bending from impact? I ask because I don't run a servo saver on mine.

The curve piece doesn't bend, it breaks. The Kingheadz piece is a direct replacement and made of 7075 Al.

You can of course turn the servo the other way around. It just needs to have other parts to make it a dual bellcrank system.

I have seen Dan's setup, I race with him and I'm pretty sure Eric got his car from Dan.
