Pics will follow when I get back from vacation and I've tidied up the electrics and body mounting posts, right now it's the wrong side of messy.

Anyone try to make an on-road race version using this chassis? Anyone try using the M05 uprights? I know the rears might be a bit tricky because of where the rear upper suspension links are located. Any way of relocating them lower?

Been waiting for a 4WD mini chassis that could accommodate a 225mm body. This might just be it..

Yes, I've race-spec'd mine out of the box. It runs M05v2 single piece arms with droop adjusters (only fit on front though), negative camber top front links, TRF M-chassis shocks, turnbuckle rear top links, M03 alloy servo arm, turnbuckle steering rods, M05 front hubs instead of the M05ra ones, and a 3Racing M06 oil filled diff up front. Rear diff currently kit but will be upgraded to a TA03 ball diff soon. Alloy motor plate too. And a TL01 speed gear set. It goes quite well. Currently running 225mm wheelbase and an HPI BMW 2002 turbo body.

Aside from the Yeah Racing long arm set-up which lowers the rear links down, does anyone know of any other alternative to lower the roll center?

Here's mine, with alloy oil shocks, full bearing kit and alloy wheel hexes. I've fitted M chassis rally blocks and put on an old Monster Mini shell to see if one would fit. Glad to say it does, so a new one is on order.

Ran the car indoors on carpet today and I'm really impressed with the car. You can drive it like a touring car, or chuck it into corners, it just seems to have loads of grip. Can't wait to try different set ups on it and to run it outdoors when the weather dries up.

Hi 32819toon - How would you compare your setup to your M-Rage?

Default MF01X racer

More tweaks. I put spacers behind the ballstuds on the rear hubs to reduce the "sweepback" angle of the top link. This gives a couple of mm of extra travel on the rear right corner as in kit spec the droop is limited by the top link fouling the transmission casing. The mod requires ballstuds with a longer thread so I used the 5x9 ones from the front suspension of the deceased M06 that was the main parts donor for this build. I also got round to installing a #54673 LWB aluminium prop shaft. At 11g this saves 19g over the steel version. And that's 19g less rotating weight, nasty rotating weight that sat way up top on the chassis. This is A Good Thing. As every little bit helps I've dropped in a Savox SC1251MG low profile servo and the #54658 aluminium servo mount, partly because I like blue bits and because in the initial build I stripped a thread in the stock (very soft) plastic mount. Hate it when that happens. And then after all that effort I sort of ruined it by putting the chassis under an old M04L Beetle shell I had lying around, I really need to find a nice low Carson 914 body one day... The advantage with a Beetle is that you can - in my opinion at least - get away with running TC wheels without looking dumb because 1:1 Beetles have such comparatively large wheels anyway.
