No. Totally different. 3Racing, Yeah Racing, TOP and a few others make oil filled gear diffs that work well.

Check tqrcracing.com . Great shop.

Today at Tamiya, Chuck (one of the Mini guru fast guys) did a 16.6 with his new M07. Since most of us struggle to get 17.2's with M05/3, new car is living up to the hype!

Was that with the 20T pinion?

Steering rack for M07? Is it the same as M05?
So I could use Tamiya (#54191) M-05 Racing Steering Set and Tamiya (#54192) M-05 Steering Link
#edit No. #54764 and #54763

Are the wheel hubs 5mm in the set or any other size?
#edit 5mm stock

Is it short or normal length to the dampers?

No, they're not compatible.

Not sure, but the manual recommends the 5mm alloy ones as an upgrade.

Normal. Short dampers with the long shock end should work fine.

Going through mental checklist of mini parts, th only stuff that is transferable from old to new (besides fasteners, wheel hexes and the like) are the dampers, spur gear and rear axles.

Tony - you mentioned in one of the build vids there was a new ESC on the way. Is this a new HW? Is it really tiny! I've mounted one of my Justocks (old one) and it's a bit of a tight fit.

Hobbywing Max10 3300Kv combo. I hear it has near identical performance on the track compared to the previous combo. I think the ESC is actually larger than the older Ezrun that we run, but it's waterproof this time around.

What gigaplex said...
its bigger, and wont fit in an 07 without dremelling some chassis.
So we're just gonna take the fan off then it's cool

Just looked up the footprint size of the ezrun, legacy justock and justock xr10. They're all within 1mm of each other. Might go looking for another solution. Kinda makes me nostalgic for brushed motor setups. The Tekin FXR was so tiny!

Not sure what chassis you are looking to mount this 'tiny' speedo in.. The M07 has a lot more room for electronics than previous M-chassis. Or maybe the 'openess' of the layout makes it feels as such. Much more efficient chassis design.

M07. It's probably just the way the wiring is laid out on the ESC and wriggling it under the reinforcement thingy. I might be looking at it the wrong way too.
