Most of that will be explained on that website but basically...

M03's are Front-wheel drive
M04's are rear-wheel drive

I was lookin' to get some oil shocks for my M03,do I need the mini or super mini CVA's? I assume the Super Mini are shorter, but will they still work?

Thanks in advance.

The super mini CVA shocks will fit just fine.

You are correct the super Mini shock are shorter. They are the ones you want they will allow you to get your car lower.

I have a set of YOKOMO shocks on my M-03. It's not TCS legal, but it's all good! I also have a set of TECH RACING mini shocks....i haven't built those.

good question, and I was thinking the same thing and about to ask the same question. That M03R looks amazing, but I don't race TCS, would it be worth it for bashing? I'm thinkin' I am gonna get to upset when its nice aluminum parts get dinged and scratched from my street.

I'm on the preorder list and it should be here sometime next week. I'll let you know then (as well as others will too I bet) whether it's worth it. It looks to pretty to bash around though and mine will probably just get built and sit on a shelf...until next carpet season. I'm not running it on asphalt and scratching up all that chrome.

hi torgue servo,
r. tow in up right.
cvds,
ball diff
radials/slicks
alum. shocks
blue front, red r springs
novak gt7 esc
and the silver can mabuchi

I have a Mini shock question.

I am currently running a MO4m with (50746) plastic Super Mini Shocks, 60 weight oil and 2 hole pistons on the rear of my car.

If I change to the Low Friction Aluminum Dampeners (53155) do I need to change the oil weight or number of holes in the piston to get the same dampening?
