F/R - hard/hard, or hard/soft usually woks for me on most asphalt surfaces. The super hard is useless IMO.

Should be 25T, so Futaba should fit.

You can’t go wrong with Kimbrough servo savers. Way better than Tamils at any rate.

Up coming re-release.. Tamiya M05 Ra Renault R5. Why they just don't release the body set by itself behooves me

Bewilders? I can't figure out what word you were going for there.

Body + kit has higher markup than just the body. so.. I'm sure that's what they're going for.

Ooh! My turn!

Stymies. Befuddles. Mystifies. Baffles. Flusters. Perturbs. Confounds.

This is just what Tamiya does. Tons of re-releases, occasional new product and insanely expensive hop ups.

...and a lot of people still buy it after many complaints and thoughts. I still buy nonsense TAMIYA stuff that I do not need

Youíre talking to the king, pal. Iíve got or had every hop up released for minis. My favourite - the Chevron rear mount steering servo kit for the M03. Still in the plastic.

Iím an idiot.

Do you have the lightweight FRP rear bumper and sway bar mount for the M03?

Damn! I never knew that bit existed. Who made it? Do you have a picture?

Originally it came out with a lightweight/carbon reinforced TL01 chassis, then Tamiya released it with the M03R kit.
