I still got a sand issue in the gearbox...looks like I need to silicone up around the motor mount cause thats were it looks like it is getting in.

Who has a renforced 20t pinion in stock in the states?

I have the 3racing ball diff and it looks a bit torn up. Looking for just the replacement gear. Cant find one for the M05. did find one for the M03, is it the same as the M05?

Who has had to seal up their gearbox? Did you do anything special? it looks like it just needs it around the bottom of the motor mount. thats where the trail of crap comes from so no worry about RTV getting into the gears or keeping the chassis from fitting together right.

You know those teensy little GoPro HD cameras that get on everything from race cars, to helmets to anything else they'll stick to? Well, they're huge once you see them mounted on the hood of an M-03. One of the guys at our club did some video this week and it's pretty cool.

It's amazing he was able to get any laps in at all with the car being so incredibly top heavy, but he did a great job considering what he had to deal with. Those streaks passing him about every second lap? Miata bodied M-06s driven by a couple of our better drivers.

Skip to about 3:30 for the start of the race. Videos haven't been edited yet.

Nice endo at time 1:54. Maybe the hood isn't a good place for the GoPro.

You should see all the frame grabs I got out of this. It's astounding just how much the body on a mini flexes. Even on the RWD with the body low and tight, there's a lot of movement.

And now we know why Ride sells that $9 lexan faux carbon fiber rear body stiffener.

Which ball diff? TA03 or MantaRay? I have the latter but I think both are similar.

anyone have some experience with shimizu ps-sm-g (medium treaded), to find a good insert for it. The original look so thin.

If you run on ashpalt, use the close cell tire insert.
