might be getting mine around the same. There are some die hard M03 fans that question the capability of the M05, but we'll see.

There's also talk of a new ball diff being designed (more modern one). About time! Adding limited slip to these cars will be killer!

TFG,

Needless to say, I will read all about it Tuesday night. Track tested the same day???

I'm almost green with envy.

CYA,

Calvin.

TFG,

I'm happy now, just received tracking number for combined package. The processing took longer as they had to wait for the Alloy front knuckles to be included in the parcel. Should be here Mon/Tues. So that will see some more in country.

I will of course wait for the RC mini crowd to build theres first, so I know what pitfalls to avoid. Might be able to give it a run tomorrow week.

Later,

Calvin.

If anyone knows of somewhere that has the M-05 Pro in stock, please PM me.

I have just sent an email to RC-Champ Advisor in Japan asking for their price & stock status of the M-05 Pro (as well as the alloy front uprights & TRF alloy shocks), but it would be good to have other alternatives if required...

Well, I can tell you for sure that they are in stock. They've got the pic up on they're site now. Huge...HUGE stack of boxes. Should be more than enough for everybody who is ordering from them.
