may need some mods. the TL01B arms is a perfect fit as the arms width of TL01 and M03 are the same.

That is one cool mini. How well does it run in dirt being only front wheel drive? I have some extra arms, axles, etc from my wild dagger and they're fit for tlo1, mo3 chassis so I think I'll try that on my second mini.

Hey Guys,
The car was going well for a FWD.
Was only about 3-4 laps behind the 2WD 540 class at our local club track.
Got a pic of the car with no body on.

Kevin, I'm pretty sure you already know this but the TCS race at Trackside is March 4th and 5th. The track will be set-up and open for practice Friday the 3rd.

Based on all the interest I wouldn't be surprised if this is the biggest year yet. We normally have a very large turn out of Mini's and I think GT1 is also going to be a large class.

And what do you mean your motor wasn't that good at Novak I thought you won. I know, it wasn't the car it was the driver

See ya.
