I wouldn't hold my breath for that either.

I have very little M-chassis knowledge. Was the 210mm wheelbase not popular enough for Tamiya to support it in this new iteration of the chassis?

Cool! I'm not into hacking though.

that would be my guess

in my years of racing mini most people ran the Suzuki Swift, CooperWorks Mini and only recently the CRX.. Long and Medium wheelbases mostly.

adding to what OSherman said - the other reason why, is licensing. only the HondaS800 and the OG mini Cooper were 210mm - neither the S800 or the OG Cooper are being made anymore

but I know once Tamiya released the first m wheelbase M03, running the S wheelbase was very rare

Hey Al - there was a 3x18mm turnbuckle Tamiya used for the 414M, you might be able to find that

or try 53525 (this is what i'd probably use)

https://www.tamiyausa.com/items/radi...rnbuckle-53525

or 54247 - that's from the 417v5 kit

they make an all black one (84020), but i can't find it any place

true - since Tamiya allows any turnbuckles for TCS, that's an option

Ran my M07 Sunday. It's running a Trakstar 21.5 with a 24t pinion. It kept up nicely with the other cars. Pretty impressed with it considering it was straight out of the box with the baseline setup. I was able to keep pace with the more experienced mini drivers until I clipped a curb and ended up on my lid on the last lap. Definitely addicted to mini racing. Have to pick up a M05 so I can run my ABC Racing Datsun Sunny sedan

the "R" version includes a lot of the hopups (DCJs specifically, all the aluminum goodies, and HEX screws!!) that you'd need to purchase separately with the other M05vII kits (TowerHobbies.com | Tamiya 1/10 M-05 Version II R Race Spec Chassis Kit )

plus the "R" kit is $210 on tower right now - and i didn't see where they told you what 'free' motor you're getting.. for a racer (and more specifically a TCS racer), anything short of a free reedy m3 21.5 is a waste - since that's the spec motor for the m-chassis class

The R kit is listed at $210. Nobody pays list price at Tower because of their coupons. The Super Saver Club coupon is $30 which takes it down to $180.

It says free motor. You may not want to race with it, but a free motor will get a non racer up and running even if most of us will switch it out.
