Unfortunately they do not fit the MO3 due to the internal bearing being a different size to the MO5. MO3 internal bearing is a 1150 and the MO5 is 1510.

Later,

Now that there are three "Spec" tires (1016, 1028, 1029) available for the TCS, any recommendation of which tire or combination of "Spec" tires would be better for carpet? I already use the "S" Specs (1016) for my M03 and M06.

Also, I have not seen them released in the U.S. When might they be available?

Doesn't having three choices skew the logic of a Spec tire?

What are your thoughts?
Thanks

I've had good luck with A slicks on the front and S radials on the back on my M-03. Might be worth shot.

Tamiya used to sell a foam block of bumper material. So, you could carve your own.

You can use a pool noodle to make a bumper.
Comes in any color you want just about.
