Locals say: Super Grips, 30wt oil all round, Springs Frt-Blue Rr-Yellow. But this just doesn't sound right so was hoping for reassurance or other solid options

help!!!!!

Shock oil Frt/Rr =
Shock Springs Frt/Rr =
Droop (Shock spacers Frt/Rr) =
Tires Frt/Rr =
Toe in/out =
Anything else???

Thx....

It's much easier to have all the Mini chat in the ONE thread - on the Tamiya Mini Cooper one please?....

It's not like we're discussing anything different on this one...

Not unless you find a "stick pack" type hard case Lipo.

I thought so. I already have hardcase packs at home. I didnt want to go out and get more.

Is there any mods I can do to make the hardcase packs fit?

I am talking about hardcase stick packs. Rectangular shape packs mean severe cutting of the chassis ... not good

I have the rectangular type hardcase packs.

Oh well. I guess I will stick with my cup racer so I can use my lipos

Default M05L/239mm

I tried searching for an answer, and didn't find what I was after...

I'm looking in an M05 manual, and can't seem to find how to stretch the chassis out to the 'L' length. (I'm assuming L = 239mm) I see only the S and M settings. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.

See manual starting page 11 bottom half at picture 17. Continue to page 12 through picture 20. Make sure you look at page 11 and 12. The instructions for the short and medium on other pages also have pictures 17 - 20

Thanks for the reply, Sydewynder.
I just printed off the manual, and it was much easier to find what I was after than when I was viewing it on screen. (my copy of the manual wasn't searchable)

Default Rear Toe Question

Two guys at my club have M05's and they both have + toe on one side and - toe on the other. The arms & hubs are not on the wrong sides or anything so I couldn't figure out what the issue was??? Thought someone here might know what is wrong. Thanks

hey guys, TT01 and M05 shocks are the same specs? Those 3racing ones (for the M05/03) are sold out everywhere i checked.

But the ones for TT01 are still available. Thanks!
