I am building my kit now, I have a question. On the diff ring gear and pinion, I put the spacers in the way the manual says but when I tighten it down in the front and rear boxes they seem alittle crunchy, not quiet at all, is this common until they break in? I did put some grease on the gears themselves. The shims are 2 on big gear side 1 on none gear side, and nothing on the pinion shaft but the 2 bearings. Am I correct?
Also the front aluminum hubs seem alittle tight for the steering is this common or could I have gotten alittle too much lock tight on the aluminum spacer in the C hubs and creating alittle binding? Whats everyones opinion? Other than those 2 things this kit is going to be excellent once done.
Thanks for your help

yes when you first build the car the gears will be 'crunchy', they bed themselves in after about a 10 minute run at which point you will need to reshim the diff to the bevel gear ... it is also good practice to always check the shim on the diffs regularly

as for the 'c' hubs i think you may have done something wrong mine turned freely out of the box

When I disassembled it after I wrote this I noticed that the bolts that go through the aluminum inserts in the c hubs, some lock tight got onto it creating the binding, I am going to reassemble tonight, so all looks good for what I have done to date. Thanks for your help

i got mine jumping of a metre high jump going about 12 to 13 metres (at the new sunshine coast off road track at mooloolah queensland)and found out the fuel tank has to much contact on the chassis and cracked it along the bottom so i put 4 one mill washers on it,1 on top of each post and 1 under the post next to the pipe so it had two washers taking it up 2 mill on the contact side, took it out again on the same jump for about a 4 hour test and problem solved but then the same jump i cracked the new designed wing from a bad landing but i can live with that i love the buggys design but the next model team magic they need to goto hudy sprung steel like mugen and xray and a more durable plastic then it will be perfect

UPDATE!

Team Magic M1B "supplemental" screw kits are now in stock!



Team Magic M1B "supplemental" 207-piece high grade 12.9 alloy steel socket head screw kit. Kit includes all applicable cap, flat and button head screws, as well as nuts, washers and set screws in 3mm and 4mm sizes.
Unfortunately the 3.5mm screws are not available from my suppliers so they are not included. Team Magic sells some of the 3.5mm screws in individual packs, so please get these from your nearest Team Magic parts supplier. The 3mm x 23.5mm diff screws are a special item and I believe are only available with the diff parts. The 4mm x 12mm "special" button heads for the front knuckles are also not available seperately. And finally the 3.5mm x 26mm long flat heads for the upper shock mounts also do not appear to be available seperately.

Default race report









Rd2 of the Texas Invitationals

My car was excellent all weekend. I clearly had one of the fastest
cars at this weekends race!

RD1. Jason Branham sets the mark with a 13 lap TQ run.
My M1 was VERY good in my run but for some reason the lap counter
wasn’t picking up my car until the second half of the race and I feel
confident I would have turned 13 in RD1 but basicly it didn’t count.
I felt good thought because I knew my car was fast enough to run with
anyone.

RD2. Having a pretty good run, but unfortunately I lost a rear CVD pin
and had to pull off.

RD3. Another good run, on a fast 13 lap pace but I blew it on the last
2 laps with a couple bobbles. I found a new line that only the M1
could take. I was doubling the wagon wheel turn and triple doubling
the whoops section with ease. Many people commented on how
effortlessly my car went through that section. After RD 3 they had
open practice and I let 3 team drivers from other manufactures drive
my M1 and they were all very impressed and came off the stand with a
smile on their face.

RD4. Last chance qual. I needed 13 to get in the show… At the start
of the race Battaile and I took the early lead. One bobble and Mike
Battaile (Team Kyosho) started to pull away. After about 6 laps Mike
was on TQ pace and I was 8 seconds behind him. 2 laps later, Mike and
I both were on TQ pace when I pulled withing 1.5 seconds of Mike. I
got caught up with lapped traffic and feel off TQ pace as did Mike B.
I still pulled a 13 lapper which placed me in the A.

Starting 8th, I got off to a great start quickly taking 2nd and the
1st on the first lap. I held 1st for a few laps until I tagged a pipe
and just like that I was 10th!! For some reason my motor wasn’t
getting that great of millage so I had to pit every 5.5 minutes which
REALLY hurt me. 30 minutes later I was 6th. The M1 was great and
didn’t give me one problem all weekend

shocks piston outer diameter need to look into....
the 2 teflon support inside diff case cause inconsistency to diff settings.....
crown n pinion gear meshing too little.....
diff case screws too short.....
chassis too soft..i doubt it's A7075....maybe NICK of TM can provide the specifications...I'm into material purchasing....maybe TM's vendor shortchange you guys....FINALLY did you TM guys really test the buggy on the track with jumps or just flat surface??!!!

i havent experienced any breakage within the last gallon or 2 of hard running every weekend on many different tracks.

The fuel tank problem was fixed with the spares package.

crown and pinion meshing to little? Add a shim?

diff screw cases to short? Which ones??? the ones that hold the acutal case together or the diff case screws?

Chassis to soft? You mean the flex? If so, they designed it to flex alot for more traction. I havent had any bad effects from the chassis flex. It does seem to be wearing a little quickly but i do have about 3-4 gallons or more on it.

wait and you shall find out for yourself...

i havent experienced any breakage within the last gallon or 2 of hard running every weekend on many different tracks.
the changes to the front arms is that the screw depth is reduced....buggy designed for experienced racers....I'm a newbie...so newbie BEWARE!!!

The fuel tank problem was fixed with the spares package.
what does an extra support do to the fuel tank? It's the fuel tank material!

crown and pinion meshing to little? Add a shim?
before you fix the crown n pinion hold it up in your hand and see the meshing...it's about 1/3

diff screw cases to short? Which ones??? the ones that hold the acutal case together or the diff case screws?
the ones that hold the diff cases together...3.5x10mm

Chassis to soft? You mean the flex? If so, they designed it to flex alot for more traction. I havent had any bad effects from the chassis flex. It does seem to be wearing a little quickly but i do have about 3-4 gallons or more on it.
I had mine for 20-30 gals since it first came out...this is my 2nd M1 and my 2nd chassis and I have 2 spares packages.Have you tried to see how much flex is in the buggy after a hard run?

I'm very sure Nick of TM knows SOME OF THESE highlighted points....I understand it takes time for a new buggy/car to evolve....but the spares packages is just a temporary solutions to problems....until I see some new changes to the M1..I have to say sorry to TM....money is in my pocket...

TMizzle, from the looks of your M1...I can see you have some new prototype parts from TM...so that's why you didn't break anything....I rest my case.
