Thanks mep, i get inspired from your cool blue mini

im building it now.My first M-chassis.(A nob) I think i got some spare blue rubber bearings from my Ta04.
and i took out my blue DF02 king pins for my mini. Since i broke my TB-02 some parts will be transfered like the Blue TRF dampers , 5mm wheel adapter etc...

But im still looking for the stabilizer #53343 manual. i must put it somewhere here.

Will post some pictures when im done.

Peace.

I did have mine somewhere, but can't find it atm...

Basically, you need to replace the screw holding the arm together, and then place one of the metal spacers in the holes, then take a long screw and a top hat spacer, and use that to mount the links.

The silver swaybars are harder....

Can anyone tell me the part number for the long spacer (M03L) so I can make my swift long enough to fit a new BMW mini shell? I can see the alloy aftermarket ones everywhere, but do Tamiya make it as an option/spare part? (they should put it in with the spare M03L bodies I reckon!)

Thanks.

I swear I looked at that page!

Either a) You just changed it, or b) I'm a mong. Your call

Thanks Tony. They should release an M03TFG in your honour.

Now to find somewhere that stocks them (the chassis spacers, not the TFG.......)

The M03TFG could be a handful to drive because it'd possibly be twice as heavy as a normal Mini....

All M03s with lithium onboard handle better with a bit of extra weight - you said so yourself!

where's the problem?

Lookin' good with the blue bling!

Can't wait to see the paintjob.... I need to steal some ideas to use on a spare body I have laying around.

I have "painter's block" right now and can't come up with a good design.
