Got mine today but I decided to go for the regular kit and not the pro. I couldn't justify the extra cash for plastic shocks I won't use some blue bits and bearings I have already. Besides it comes with a short wheel base body and I was thinking of going back to that.

I have it 90% built just have to get my electronics installed but it's getting late and morning comes way to fast. (gotta work)

Build has gone great so far very straight forward. I love tha fact that i can use my TA03 ball diff and M03 drive shafts in it. Thanks Tamiya! (don't worry I'm sure you'll come out with some other hopups I can spend the money I saved on the diff and shafts)

I'm a little worried about the plastic piece that connects the steering bell cranks as it seems a little weak and as we all know mini racing can get rough! I'll find out this weekend.

Can I say that the main "usable" differences are ball bearings and alloy rear uprights at the expense of a body, esc and motor?

Most of the discussion is on the Tamiya Mini Cooper thread. It's the one we've been using for minis for years, and it appears it's going to stay that way.

But...my review in short is, it's damned good. A few little issues, but nothing serious.

Jim

Yeah those clear shocks are trash. Why did tamiya even make them!

TRF shocks or any stronger shock will do the job

Is it so hard to read the manual.

BTW Gepetto told you all the bearings needed for the car

All of the gossip about the MO5 is in the other mini thread and the australian MO3/MO5 thread.

Regards,

Calvin.
