I used Boca Bearing.

hit the 99 cents each page and pick out your size, shipping is free for more than 12 or so.
Mine (all 18) were under 18 bucks.

You can pick rubber seals both sides, rubber/metal or metal/metal.
I like mine so far and got em in a couple days, nice folks too.

I have always wanted a M-05 and tonight I finally ordered one. It should be here early next week. Can't wait to start the build.

k_bojar,

Which brand of steering rack are you talking about? I have not seen Tamiya's offering, so can offer no comment, however 3Racing do two, one alloy and one CF. Tech racing do a CF and Yeah a alloy steering rack, which is similar to the 3Racing alloy steering rack. Here is a photo of mine 3Racing fitted to my MO5M chassis. Works well and has less slop. I have also included a shot of both my MO5's. The MO5M also has 3Racing MO5 alloy front knuckles and 3Racing steering rod. My MO5L has Tamiya alloy front knuckles, Tamiya motor mount and alloy heat sinks. Both cars are MO5 Pro's.

Regards,

Calvin.

Check out this latest 210mm release from HPI, the stunning Alfa Mito. Oh man do I want one of these.

Lovely looking shell - ironic really that the car is a minger in real life.

my bad, calvin - i meant the new setup from Tamiya...Since i plan on running mine in the TSC, i need to have all tamiya parts on the chassis - so as nice as the 3Racing stuff looks, cannot run it

Since the M05 was first announced, we at rc-mini reckoned that the whole thought process behind the car was mainly just to allow the fitment of lower profile bodyshells.

And...coming soon..

You can lock up the gear diff by adding shims, or filling it with glue. If you just want to tighten it up, throw some Tamiya Anti-Wear grease in there.

You can tighten up the ball diff by, well, tightening it up.

Tamiya body?

Odd if so, wouldn't have thought tamiya would make a RWD car on a FWD chassis.
