and by that it will eliminate the wheel spin? because when im accelerating out from corners it takes time to get the momentum or it doesnt accelerate like it should be while other m03s can keep momentum from corners.

Yup, without the shim there's no resistance keeping your lifted wheel from spinning, taking all the power from your motor. Tightening with the extra shim gives it the resistance needed to keep your wheels going, even with one wheel off the ground.

Manta Ray or TA03 ball diff comes with hard joint cups or the regular ones?

[QUOTE=tony gray]Well...you need to consider one thing for a start. The X-Ray, Yokomo and Corally need Touring Car size wheels so that limits your bodyshell choice if you pick one of them.
The Roadrunner Pro looks like it comes with all the bling included and spares will be plentiful (and cheap too) so I'd lean toward that to be honest.



Thanks and a very good point. While I may desire to run shaved foams for carpet sometimes, I would really prefer to run mini wheel sizes. To me it looks better. I also like the idea of supporting this new project. That's it! I will buy an Express mini with a monster-mini body.....when it comes out .

If you want to run mini wheels you have to make sure they clear your car of choice. Those that are made for TC wheels will have mini wheel clearance problems (Corally, Xray, Yokomo) One car that is 4wd mini and can use mini wheels is the ABC Genetic.

The specs on both MantaRay or TA03 ball diff do not say they come with hard joints. The Ta03 cups look shiny nickel plated. The Manta Ray look mat gray like the optional hard joints cups but...........

That's what I thought... Are those hard joint cups long lasting?

I think our good friend and mentor, Tony, would say not to worry about it. If you're running silver can motors (TCS-spec or, probably, even the black can units) you're not putting enough power through to bother the standard cups much.

I can't say for the hard joint cups, my Manta Ray joint cups have no notching at all. Have been running for about 2 years.

Actually we run the hardened ones... The standard ones do wear quite badly. Even with a silver can motor.

I think Mike needs to check our site, most of the questions he's asking are already answered on there...

Hey guys,
I'm having the worst luck with search engines and was hoping you could help.

I'm looking for the part number for the Tamiya Titanium axles for the rebuildable/assembly universal shafts for the M-chassis. Does anyone happen to have the part number, or better yet know if these are still available? The black axles that come with these universals tend to snap easily. I have one set already, so I know they existed at one time.

Thanks!
