Which brushless motor would most suit the M03?? Any recommendations?

Due to CONSTANT email questions and requests (AAARGHH! I cant stand it any more!!) we have released ONE of our chrome chassis sets onto the open market..



Info is on rc-mini.net, or go HERE to check it out. And Good Luck!

Remember, this is ONE of only 20 in the world....and there wont be any more.

Foam degrades and loses it springiness, rubber o rings perish.

So if you want to take it to the final degree, yes maybe if you're using dogbones you might want to put an or ring in the outdrive and one out in the hub as well. BUT...often this will be too tight and bind the whole system up.

I don't use dogbones anyway though...
generaly i got it, so i best get silicon fuel tube for this purpose?


i too don use Dog bones

Well Mini maniacs I am sitting here staring at a LARGE shipment of Shimizu mini tyres. Now life is really good. These will be put up on the website tonight. Shipment includes the 25 and 35 D98 tread plus some of the Shimizu slicks.

Great to see Shimizu around again

Tony Ps Mini looked awesome at KROMA on Sunday with the chrome chassis, orange bling and rims to match, up until he tried the drifting tires aka X Patterns

stocker,

I initially had my turnbuckle hinge pins on the inner hole on the MO3R uprights and found the car to be very sensitive to steering input. This was even with the steering speed at 50, so I changed them to the outer hole on the knuckle and have found the car so much easier to drive. I have not tried the most forward hole as I do not require any more steering.

You just need to make the turnbuckles longer so that you get the same toe out or run the front tyres straight when the front end is compressed.

BTW

I use spektrum and a digital servo, so the steering speed was way to quick. The car was on a knife edge all the time and this change slowed the steering reaction time down as well as making some minor changes on the radio.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

Calvin.

Hey guys, this is my first post in the Mini thread.

This summer I will be teaching kids how to put together a chassis that I have a sneaking suspicion will be the M-03 because the person I talked to said they are "mini-coopers" and I know they are Tamiya.

I am wondering if there are any complicated parts/suggestions you have for putting the chassis together. Also, I am hoping the place I am working at will have an extra chassis so I can throw in some electronics myself and option parts I can order ahead of time. What are valuable parts to have for these chassis' if I were to order some option parts ahead of time?

Thanks for any and all help!

I was trying it during TITC. Well. If you are putting spacers into your shock already, then you will not need it. This tool makes it easy for you to adjust downstop with full length shocks. So it makes it easier rather than disassembling the whole shock.
