Thank you Raman, even a complete Setup sheet, perfect! Still have to shim my steering acc. to your instruction. Mine is quite sloppy, too.
So you went to M06/07 springs, too? Or the older White ones from M05?
Ill try to stick to the Gold ones first, at least in front, if possible...

Br,
Matthias

Broke my first parts in car.. 2 c hubs back to back.. axle stub kept catching.. so I have now trimmed them down.

Im now attempting to get a class going again at my track. All we need is 3 and there are more than 3 at the track with M chassis.. they just need to bring their cars

Good luck Raman for motivating your friends! Up to now I did not break the C-Hubs during my first batteries. Thought it would happen earlier. Have finished my body now, quite happy with it, although its a copy of the former Carson Body. (not at the quality level of Tamiya)

Body comes from: https://www.racersparadise.de/
At this moment it looks to be out of stock.

@Matthias, What Ride tires combi do you use on the M08 on asphalt?

Hi Erik Jan,
yes the body I sourced from Racers paradise. They do the reproduction of the original Carson version.

The ride tires were some old ones already used on my M07, so I tried SC30 in rear and some of the older SC32 in front. Worked already, but probably I could have gone up in the shore hardnesses, as we had still quite warm weather last weekend. I mainly tested damper positions, and tried now 5k diffoil. I also used the other Ackermann position in the steering, which I found to give me less or equal push in our hairpin, with less toe out, almost neutral toe. Car was great off throttle, totally planted and good steering. After the hairpin and another curve I had to be sensitive on the gas during accelerating, but for our asphalt track, which is not prepped, it was driveable.
Nevertheless I hope to get testing on carpet in autumn. I guess there is the opportunity to Show the potential of the M08 to the M07 drivers...
Kind regards,
Matthias

Its a good car against the M07. I qualified 2nd with my M08 at TCS finals and finished 3rd overall.

Congratulations Dan, great result!
Very good news. But now we want to know everything about your car, setup, track conditions! Could you give us some details please?
Br,
Matthias
