The GST Tax in Japan is 8%, so the RRP is set at 19,224

However, most online retailers in Japan provide discount up to 30%

This what you're after ?

Guys. Wait for Banzai to get them in. My M05 gold was $129 through them and shipping was pretty good.

Thanks for the pic, marcos. That's exactly what I was looking for.

More detail of the new extension on the rear end to accommodate the droop adjustment.

oh, I see it's about time I swap out my M-03 now.
That M-05ProV2 looks good.

Looks like the position of the motor and the first intermediate gear have moved but the second intermediate gear is still in the original position.

Does anyone know if the new 05ver2 comes with a brushless motor/esc combo or is it stock silvercan?

you will notice one arm has more play than the other. Shim the front arms so they are completely perpendicular to the chassis' centerline.

Then move on to the shocks, make sure they're equal left to tight. Please install the original plastic steering rack/wipers to investigate the problem. I had this issue for a whole race season when I was about to giv up mchassis racing!!!

Once I got it right, I'm always somewhere on the podium Good luck mate!

New chassis design - motor moved, and allows for square batteries
