Most of the chatter is in the M07 thread.

That car is an interesting mix of m07, with a tranny design like the Express RWD mini, but flipped...sort of.

Whatís so old school about rctech? I sure hope Facebook isnít the new hotness, because itís truly bloody awful.

See you kids on the m07 thread.

I put a post on the rc-mini FB page and it got over 13,000+ views (and still rising) and several hundred comments.
The very same post on rctech got under 200 views and 2 comments.
Sorry Jim, but forums and message boards are like me, old, flatulent, and unloved...

Thereís a very good reason my FB is under a fake name, has no details about me and is locked down.

Now, can anyone figure out why I ordered Tamiya 42306 touring car large diameter short spring set? 5 months and gallons of pain meds and antipsychotics have erased my brain. I got so much crap in the mail!

Youíre running your 419x at a TCS race? Or you have big bore SS shocks on your m chassis and your running that at a TCS race. Otherwise theyíre useless lol

Yeah, none of that. I may have bought them for my MTS FF touring car. It uses weird little shocks. Maybe my M07? Although, I already own a massive quantity of mini springs.

Here's the weird part, Tamiya lists them as hard (yellow) and soft (red) i guess medium is black. But, the colours are green, red and black from left to right. Oh well.

Agree! Theyíre a mess.

I use X ray springs now.. 2.3, 2.4 marking make sense .. no need to remember on which generation of Tamiya springs yellow meant medium versus hard.

Tamiya should have stuck with red soft, yellow medium, white hard, blue extra hard of old..

I have no clue what rating mean on the left over kit springs from my 419, 419x or TB Evo 6. Iím always tempted to just throw them away and then I stop myself

I acquired this Kose graphite chassis for FB marketplace and sourced the rest from Japan! I get lucky with these older M-Chassis. It's a shame the parts are so hard to come by now.


Does anyone know much about the HPI chassis for the M-01?

Ah! The insane and ludicrous of the Tamiya spring lineup.

Off topic: Have you got a reliable source for Race-Opt or MTS stuff? My FF needs some love.
