Questions?? tto1 m chassis conversion

hi everybody,
i have the tto1 and i want to buy the m chassis conversion kit but the thing is that i noticed that it shrinks the car down. the problem is i dont want to the car to shrink. i want it to stay the same size(1/10th scale). i noticed some people with the conversion kit but there car is still the same size. how do i keep it the same size? i noticed that the kit comes with some arms and dog bones. i think they were a little shorter. if im right can i just put the original tto1 armsand dog bones in to keep the same size? and if i do buy the kit is there any parts that i need to buy to make everthing fit correctly? i appreciate everyones help.

I think you have got 2 different 3racing chassis mixed up.
the whole point of the mchassis conversion is to shrink it down to m-chassis mini size. shorter & narrower.

If you dont want it to shrink get something else , like the 'normal' 3racing TT01 carbon kit.
I think thats the one youre really after

still a waste of money either way (& I have one), but a fun build.
Also expect to spend even more on 'upgrades' not included in the kits.

He's saying that the tt01 and the M chassis are different. The Tamiya M01-M05 chassis kit will not fit the TT01 chassis for they are apples and oranges.

They do have a conversion kit for the TT01 that changes the tub chassis to a carbon fiber one.

I had considered converting mine to that chassis until I decided to keep it stock. I'd hate to scratch up a good chassis rally racing. Keep is posted with pictures.

ahh i see. yeah that would be ashame to scratch it up, but i'd probably still get it and just put tape on the bottom to prevent it from getting scratched up....well it will help maybe?

Default orange apple

"m-chassis" has the spec of
Wheelbase at 210mm, 225mm & 240mm
Width of 160mm to 165mm

Usual touring car has wheelbase of 260mm with 190mm in width.
(If GP then 200mm wide.)

An m-chaassis conversion need to shrink down the car size to appropriate m-chassis spec, or it won't be m-chassis.
