Default M05 BEARING SIZE

IT LOOKS LIKE M05 IS USING 1150 X 12 AND 850 X 4 BEARINGS ONLY. NO MORE 1050 BEARINGS IN FRONT AND REAR UPRIGHT http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/item.php?product-id=54179 WHAT YOU GUYS THINK ON GOING LARGER SIZE BEARINGS ON UPRIGHT.

If the uprights they're using are being transferred directly from the M-03R, then they would have been 10x5. It seems they're maybe using the "other" M-03 upright size though.

This could be to simplify the process of purchasing bearings. It could also be that a larger bearing may be a little more efficient.

Is this for the M-05 only and not the PRO version?

Default m05

m05 aluminum front and rear uprights part numbers are#54177 and #54178. m03r aluminum part numbers are#49441 and#49442. m05 pro comes with aluminum uprights... i wish i can use m03 uprights on m05. i think 1150 bearing are too big for mini. even tc's not using 1150 bearings

MO5 Pro only comes with rear alloy uprights. Alloy front knuckles are not included in the kit and need to be purchased seperately.

Regards,

Calvin.

I think there are only 3 things it doesn't come with, the blue screws, the trf shocks and the front aluminum steering knuckles.

I just messaged the dood who posted it, Skitee's right. That would've been so sweet if it at least had the TRF shocks.

I still want one though!

They actually release them in Japan today 2009-06-25, so it could already be on it's way to you if you ordered it from Japan.
