Default What's the difference between M05-ra and m05 pro v2?

I saw a nice alpine kit based off a m05-ra chassis and I happen to find a m05 pro v2 chassis review so I am wondering what's the difference between the 2.

afaik, the pro v2 chassis has some blue alu parts.

Ra is aa standard m05 kit with rally tires.

V2 is a redesigned plastic frame to accept square packs, plus a few other "cool" features.

I'll add to oooooooooo (hope im not missing a few o's!!) and say that the V2 has much better weight balance vs the standard M05.

Although, M05's are fun to drive for sure.

thanks

I take it as the pro V2 is better than the m05 pro gold edition?

"Better" is subjective. I'd say the v2 is more tunable because of the centered square pack and droop screws.

With that said, the gold plastic on the gold pro is horrible to look at.

Better in the way of weight distribution too. The motor is more centered vs the M05 so the left/right balance is greatly improved for easier tuning and driving. You can buy the V2 chassis (#54605 black in color, and a few more items) later on if you encounter problems with your M05 Gold edition and want to convert it to a V2.

The standard M05's quirks are actually what makes the car fun to drive though, so it's really up to you. I have both the M05 and V2. I'm keeping my M05 the way it is.

Keep in mind that the gold will wear off very quickly especially on the bottom unless your car is a shelf queen. GL with whichever you decide.

Hello, I would liko to ask something about M05 vs V2

I know, they have somehow different motor mount. But how much different it is? Will V1 mount fit into V2 chassis without problems, other than that motor will stick out little more? Thanks

The v1 alloy motor mount interferes with the steering rack when used on a v2 chassis. If you have the tools you can grind it down to fit.
