i feel that the new m05 will be like the m01 and m03 combine. long stearing linkage low COG with a similer chassis as the m03

i wonder how is this car going to corner with the new shock angle.

the rear servo wil make it no good for those who put the electronics in the rear

someone post pics in here!

that's great! can't wait

what do you like about the design of the car what don't you like much?

the stearing will have the same 'ol m01 slop i bet. and they should have made it a mini tub chassis (preferbly the same debth as the tt01) with a front gear box that comes lose and a rear end that comes lose leaving the tub for upgrade or replace ment or a light weight houps. that's what i thought the m05 will be someday. but I'm happy about it

Mini is a fun class and by adding a tub (Like HPI did) it turns it in to a fully fledged racing class taking away what a mini is
