Have you tried shoe glue and sheet rock tape? The holey stuff not the regular stuff?

That might work, but I'd be doing the he entire rear corner of the car and maybe the rear bumper section, too. I noticed the rear tuck in on frontal hits. The whole car bananas!

If the m06 is faster, why not run it at wcics? Or is it less consistent?

Very sad news to relay....Grandpa passed away last Friday. Especially on this forum, where we all learned from him so much about mini tuning, he will be greatly missed. RIP Bob.

One of the coolest cats I've been fortunate to know in RC.

I knew Granpa only from this forum,
but I learned a lot from his posts here.

He was indeed a cool Mini expert, and I wish I can drive my Minis as long as he did.
RIP Bob!

Bob and I exchanged some very long, detailed and argumentative emails. I think we both enjoyed a good disagreement as a means to seeing an otherwise unforeseen viewpoint. It was awesome. His generosity with both time and stuff was equally admirable. He taught me many fine ways to go a little faster, even if he provided the information via riddles half the time.

I'm going to miss that guy. He was one of the good ones. Always made me smile and taught me to suffer fools with patience.

Very sad news.
I also learnt a lot from him on this forum. Without all the knowledge that I found here my only rc title would have been impossible.

Rest in peace Bob.

My condolences to everyone who knew Granpa. I only had a few conversations with him, but they were good ones.

There's an M03 waiting for him on the other side, charged and ready to go.
