that's tight! I have one m01, one m03, one m03r, one m04 in parts.

I'm getting a new m03 soon
and when the m05 pro comes out ill snitch that up also

these things are a crazy addiction.

I was hoping you'd chime in. Colt as in the old OFNA copy of the HPI Nitro Mini RS4? Sweet... I still have my old Nitro Mini! I remember reading reviews that the Colt had some improvements on it. I'd love to get my hands on one of the old upgrade chassis plates for that thing...

I'll have to pick up one of those Colt bodies. Looks sweet. Perfect proportion!

Hi,
anyone knows whether the TA03 ball diff Pressure Plate Cap and Pressure Plate B can be ordered separately? I stripped mine!

Can someone advise the PN?

Thanks!!

Ive started downsizing. 2 nib alfa's, 1 running 04, one running 03r blue, and one 03 rwd frankenstein lol. My 03r is dialed, so its back to the shelf, and the 04 is getting tuned. When i find the time to finish the steering on the rwd 03, look out! finally i can run my tired silver cans backwards! lol man its tough to sell these things. I sold my other 04, an i gave my other 03r to my father, 03 to my bro in law, and have another 03 in final stages for my best mate to race. finally down to 3 cars only.... but i still have enough parts to build 1-2 04's lol. dont get me started on the NIB bodies in the corner either....

dude, just check with local shop, they also ran out of it, you probaly have to buy new, i guess you have to take the expert advise from here where you need to stuff the cup with Fuel hose so the cup will be in place all the time,

best of luck locating what you need. cheers

I once pulled the ta03 ball diff out my ta03rs and stuck it in my mini and did a parking lot assult by putting a high power brushless system in it my mini.... i stripped the plines in the diff where the cup meets the pressure plate and its useless lol

Buy another diff. Some places have em for 14 bucks USD

What be this?...



It's a Kawada M300GT. Why have I posted a picture of it?
Dimensions - w/base 210 mm
- track 160 mm

Hey that's the same as an M03.... Yep sure is.

Basically a modified 1/12th scale (like the Tech DD/M) that takes mini wheels. Check out the width on the rear though!

He means make sure there is an 'o' ring in the outdrive to keep the outdrive IN...

Or, some people do indeed use a small offcut of fuel tube. Does the same job.
