hey i was wondering where you guys mounted the On/off switch on the m03 chassis ?

and , if i mount my esc( duratrax 20turn/reverse) on the side of the chassis will it affect the handling in a bad way ? I know that i am supposed to get the CofG as low as possible .

I have mounted my switch on the side. On facing the backside & off facing the front. I have a m03 & I have mounted my esc between the rails as well as my rx.

Since everyone is showing theirs, here is what I race. It's easier to keep my eyes on my car when you have something to look at.

For guys racing these under TCS rules.

What are you generally getting?

* Ball diff
* oil shocks (do 415 shocks fit)

is that pretty much it other then tires? our track is planning to start a class under tcs rules. we are trying to keep cost down and fun factor up

thats pretty much it, Anthony... diff, nice shocks and of course, full bearings. i think my car has the lightweight shafts inside the gearbox, but thats mainly it. i use the TRF flourine shocks from another car, with quite a few orings to reduse the amount of droop.

Carbon shaft set, full bearings, ball diff, CVA short type shocks(plastic ones). That is all I can think of right now.

BTW, how tight is everyone running their ball diffs? All-the-way tight, or all-the-way-then-back-off-a-little tight?

My car's still a little loose on power-down coming out of the slower corners, and the diff is tightened all the way...

I run my diff as tight as it will go but that still isn't tight enough. It still unweights coming out of corner I'm trying to find a heavier sticky diff lube to help a bit.

I ordered mine from RC Boyz for $7.50. Look for Part #TAM0005798 Tamiya M03 to M03-L (Long) Chassis Extender.
