Two M-01 coopers, One with scarsss and scratches all over, proven runner, with stories to tell...
One M-02, Alpine A110(on my avatar), Shelve Queen.
Two M-03, basic M03L + another blue plated chassis(looks too good that it "stuck" in my hand in the shop... got to pay for it then...
One M-04, Miata. Love this, the chassis layout looks to kill!! Current frequent runner. Adding another M-04L VW Beetle, soon...

Dare not to run my M-01 anymore, hard to find new parts again... You are still able to get hold of new parts supply huh?! On M-01, I reinforce the "sus. arm holder"(attach to bulkhead/gearbox with 2 screws) and C-hub, then its break proof!!!

Bro LATC3, did you run your M-03 with touring tires? sponge? 60D? or regular/small mini tires?
Just Silver-Can? An M03R with heavy hop up really handle well, even on low turns motor...!!

Btw, where did you get your latest M-01? New in box? Still available from ebay huh?! Guess I must browse it more frequent...

Nice collection!
LATC3, congrats on your M-01. Let me know when you get it running for TAMIYA track in Aliso Viejo.

That's all you need for the M-01. Less expense and more fun.

Questions?? M04 with short wheelbase???

Do you guys know if it's possible to change your M04 to have a short wheelbase?

I have a VW, but I would like to be able to use som of the super-sweet bodies that have an 210 mm wheelbase.

So how do i change my car so that it only has a 210 mm wheelbase?

Thankt you for any hints, ideas or answers

Cheers
Peter

Thanks a lot for the link, its much appeciated.

I kinda hoped that thare would be an easier way to do it, like a substitute chassis or something, but I guess I could try to convert the car like he does in the article.

I will wait a bit though, so others can give me alternative solutions

Cheers

Looking for inexpensive serovs for M03 cooper.

Any recommendation?
I found this site: Hitech looks reasonable, but do I need ametal gears, high torque or hi-speed?. Not competing, but I do want soild performance.

Or @ Hobbypartz

Thanks

Just get the Futaba S3004, it has a single BB and is proven. They only cost like $13. You don't need metal gears especially onroad cars.

For minis probably not, because there is a lot of slop and give in their steering, but for a touring car you need a strong servo if only to make sure you don't destroy it in a crash. Sure, good savers help a lot, but they can only do so much.

I bought it on Ebay for 65 bucks! A guy bought it fully hooked up and stripped all the mods off and sold me the scraps. He ended up throwing in aluminum stearing arms and extra gears and a SWEET rare heatsink.

It was enough to build 1 whole M01. Its in almost PERFECT condition. It also came with all the body parts and trimmings for the old mini rally body.

Also something I really liked it came with the box! Love the box art tamiya prints out for the kit.

Does anyone have a nice setup for tarmac for a mini M02? Silvercan motor. Mine has the short aluminium shocks at the moment, not sure what pistons/oil combo would work best as I found the suspension will flex before the springs are compressed (using the silver kit springs). At the moment I have 40wt oil with three hole pistons in it. Handles OK on carpet (very low traction) and from memory it did very well on tarmac, but that was a long time ago.
