Nitro m03 custom?!?!? Or a custom nitro mini?


Has anyone try making the front bevel diff a solid unit with no diff action?

I took the droop out of my front susp. Ill see how it goes. I think it was going toe out also messing up my turns. I also put stiffer TRF springs. Ill go run it later maybe at midnight...

Yes only one nut to change and two new rims.

I was using a friends high priced digital brushless servo. If it was my gear the servo would've been trashed after.

Get a GOOD servo saver!

Ohh damn I thought you were talking 3.5 ENGINE size!

I wish someone would really make a custom nitro FWD cooper that really works. I seen ONE on youtube a guy in japan had built but there's no specs on it.

I'm building a front wheel drive belt drivin electric mini at the moment, its based off a couple nitro cars and tamiya shocks, a-arms, dog bones, ect... but its going to have to be 14 or 15turn with 32pitch. Ill see how it goes.... that's if I don't give up now on it

A custom-build ULTIMATE electric Mini would have to be based on this - the Yokomo YRF2 SP.
Easily the coolest Touring Car ever built and a shrunken one would make an AWESOME mini....

Yes anthony the yokomo yrf2 was on of the best built FWD but it got outlawed at the tamiya ff01 races. *It was just to fast*

But you could never build a "FF mini" (Front motor-Front wheel drive mini) I try doing it with my 'ol m04 by putting the motor upfront with a graghit chassis behind. I had everything mocked up ready mount to drill and bolt. But I couldn't mount a mini body, due to NNOOO room infront so I FAILED

Now I'm going to make the same as the yrf2 but the motor behind the axel and a 2.5mm nitro chassis. We'll see.

Hey I brought it to 1 meeting, because NT asked me too...

We saw a dog on a leash tied up to a pole outside Mc Donalds a while back. Graeme immediately yelled out

"Look, its tether dog!"

No point in getting caught up in the details

I may have owned 50% of the Mini chassis' entered for the event!
