But the setscrew uses is a standard allen wrench and not a metric one.
Thanks for clarifying that.

I could not find, by searching this thread, what the straight body pins used in the rear of a M05 is from?

I need to pick up a set for my M05 to mount a corsair chevy pick-up on it.

Mats I don't believe there are any adjustable fronts available, can't say I've ever seen any.

The fronts are so short it's difficult to do.

QFT.

When I tried those adjustable links, even with the smallest spacer I was at positive camber. Even then taking the spacer out I had to much positive camber up front.
I use the stock Tamiyas for the front uppers and those(the linked in the post above) after market links for the rear toe in/out and also for the rear uppers couple with alum rear toe axle carriers.

I believe 3racing produce a kit with adjustable front and rear upper links for the M05. I dont appear to be able to post links but the model number is M05-16/LB . Never tried them so can't say how well they work.

You can always make your own with some threaded rod and ballends. Dubro has all different size rods.

I believe those needed on the M03 is shorter than those on the M05? at least on the front?

Looking to get a esc Bl motor combo for my car. Which ez-run system is everyone running. I am not looking for a super fast car, just something efficient and controlable. I am just running for fun. Or should I just get a black can and call it a day. I do want to run a 2cell though. Thanks

eZrun 35a with a 13t (3000kv) motor seems to be the norm for Mini's

If you aren't following any rules like TCS I would get the Hobbywing EZRun system with a 13T motor (sensorless) or the Speedpassion Cirtix 17.5T(sensored). The Hobbywing is a bit faster. Both should be around $70-80 US. I wouldn't bother with a black can. There's too much variation in it and you could end up with a dud. Plus it'll need more maintenance and replacement than the brushless. The cost of the black can and a brushed esc is going to be the same if not more the those 2 systems.

Does Cirtix have a 21.5? I have a 17.5 in my GT car and it's really fast. I wanted something more along stock speeds.

As far as I know for now there isn't a package deal with a 21.5T. The Cirtix esc is just a BL non ramping/turbo boosting esc. You can buy a 21.5 motor that would work with the esc but the cost of the motor (from Tekin, LRP, etc.) is going to cost around the whole 17.5 system so its not economical.

The M03 can easily handle the speed of EZrun 13T.
