thanks for the reply...
i'm going to have a TAC carpet race this coming sunday on a very small and tight track. ( Half the size of a basketball court )
Thinking that the smaller pinion is it, the faster dashing out ..

And yap, thats my signature means...

Default It's NEW and it's BLUE

Yep the new model M03R has just broken cover, and not surprisingly rc-champ are the first people to get them. No doubt they'll be everywhere else within a week or so.



Its basically exactly the same as the first M03R kit, except it has the BLUE chrome chassis. not the smokey chrome that came with the first one. Oh, and BLACK wheels too...

Default minis

hi,

slomo
just the right tire/suspension balance and the m04 can be drifted just like a full scale 2wd car. old m-grip tires works for me.

RCMARKET
Body is from JADA toy kit, was red in color and looks like an import race type car. Bought in Canada. Had to do some sanding, epoxy to make it look like initial d.
