Good to see the work we put in might have inspired someone to create their own car then! Thanks for the feedback, always much appreciated!

Drive test is scheduled for next weekend and we'll report back after that.

If anyone has any build related questions, just post them here and I'll answer them.

Thanks for the advice. The shock travel is extremely limited with the 6mm spacers in there. With the internal limiters the car doesnt droop down as much at rest like you stated. I'll probably go back to 40wt in the back. What density insert do you recommend?

Also thanks Andrew! I was trying to avoid traction compound, but it looks like I'll have to get some.

a Classic VW Beetle body looks like it would fit on there just fine.
Or a nice DATSUN 1200 ute !

I've only got one Datsun Ute body Lue, and its already drilled to fit a normal M03...
But you're right, being RWD it is quite appropriate!

No-one lists it separately as yet. It's only available as part of the complete ABC Genetic kit.
If you email rc-champ they may be able to get it for you. but I havent seen the shell by itself listed by anyone yet.

Thanks Tony,

I thought it's a new product from cross ...

Have you got the tech racing ? what's the p/n ?
WHich one is lighter, cross or tech ?

Does Square also make the hard molded suspension arm for M-chassis ?

Cheers,
