Evo 6 is nice.

Me and Jim were joking around about the CF TT01 short wheelbase chassis.

And yes, it handles horribly!

Its basically a shorter, sexier TT01. So it handles like a sack of garbage, only more unpredictable and more shiny.

So, like Peter Dinklage, wearing a sequinned ball gown, running an obstacle course? (I was gonna go with "a drunk Kylie Minogue" but feared the reference might be lost on many.)

No! I'm bored!

I'm actually kind of amazed by how many decent looking touring chassis Tamiya puts out. Don't most manufacturers just sell variously optioned versions of a single chassis?

I found that the useless CF damper stays I bought for the V2 can work as the front body post holder base. I just need to make a little bracket to mount it to the chassis. Kinda excited... I hope the Nanda (BSR) runs better than my CupRacer..

I have the Tamiya ones for the front and rear. The front ones are wide enough and match the pre-drilled body post holes on the Rover Mini.

I tried them as damper stays on my V2 for a while, but ended up removing both of them and just use the factory mount holes.

-what? CR's were great little cars for the price. In fact in there was a driver who was consistently the top finisher in the open 4wd class for several seasons using a CR'r. I had at least 3 CR's at various points, for less than $200 they came w/ everything you needed and quality parts. Mine handled great. I raced mine for one season, it easily blew the Tamiya Mini's away.

But I have a feeling people either loved or hated them ...probably why they were only produced for about 3 years.

You have a Saber4WD mini. You know what a great (fantastic) mini runs like. CR has fundamental problems inherent to shaft drives with motors positioned longitudinally. I suppose 'horrible' was harsh but they aren't that great. I like to have good and bad examples in my m-chassis line up to have variety, so I still have mine though.

Yeah, racing against Tamiya m-chassis with the CR in open class is a walk in the park. I think you need to bring in at least a Roadrunner to keep a level playing field. Say sayonara once Sabres come in though.

Pulled out my M05 and V2 since about a month ago and had a great time driving it today.

Need to use up my 60D tire since I am converting all to 55mm Shimizu's.
Finally found a compound that works great on my track.

I want to fiddle around with an Atomic, but can't seem to find them for sale anywhere.

Just wondering anyone made a M05 drift? If so what is your setup? I know it would be pretty hard with FWD
