I know this car is more designed for fun and all but has anyone set it up to compete against, say, TC3's and the like?
Thanks

I have driven my wifes M a few times, I believe you would have to really, really work at it, and then be racing a really lowsy tourer..... unless it's an HPI or TRAXXAS then you just build it to kit specs and tear'em up!!!!

Raced our M04L for the first time yesterday at our Tamiya-only outdoor track. Ran against 3 M03s and cleaned up. The larger tires and 21t pinion crank up the speed a lot. Did traction roll a little as the track temp heated up; added sway bars for next time to see it if impacts this.

Most racers at my local club run HPI pro 3's, some TC3 and a few xxx-s's. I've beat them before with my TC3, witch I'll most likely run, but I've tuned the m03 mini with some oil shocks and minor things and it seems to handle really well. Hope to race tomorrow,we'll see.....

Hi Guys!

I have an M-04L with an S2000 bodyshell.

Why do I understeer heavily?

On a stock motor the understeer is managable, but when I install a DynaRun Stock, I couldn't turn anymore...

Which spring colors would you suggest as my base set-up?

Thanks!

Geetoo: M-05? ketochen!!

HI Guys,

I was wondering what difference are there between the M-02, 03 and 04? Will parts in M-03 fit the 02 or 04?

Im asking because we are going to stock up some GPM hop-ups for the M-03. They will mainly be arms, knuckles and steering component. If any one will be interested just email us.

Thanks

Sweet memories... M-01 and M-02 rolls a lot when steer, they were so much more realistic and fun to watch!!
