Given my thumbs up Joel, it was just fun and so informative another time to listen to your findings. Seems I have to swap my front and rear springs, as I was stuck to the black yellow in rear and black red in front the last 2 years, just like M06 R original setup. From the inboard Video it seems you are using the kingpin axle stud as lower shock mount, just like the M06 Pro Setup, am I right? Iエm Looking forward to your next reviews, and putting more fuel to the fire ( Iエm feeling like Raman)! I wish I had more time for testing and unleash the potential of my M06,
Br, Matthias

Haha Raman,
no real race body, but shall be a beautiful T1 camper according to some leaks. But hey, imagine a VW campervan launching of by rear wheel power and passing the M07エs at the start? O.k., there may be some problems on the first curves...

No Images yet, but as the T1 and T2 shared the wheelbase with the Beetle in 1:1, somebody on TC stated, that it shall be a camper and new, non comical body. The Wheelie body has different wheelbase and is not true in some proportions. Donエt know, if it is really true, but sounds logical to me...

We used to run on carpet here in Singapore for the Tamiya Asia Cup (tac) races. However, all races are now conducted on annoutdoor asphalt track... I think it is cheaper for the Tamiya distributer, but I really prefer indoor carpet racing...
enjoy the m06! I hope a m08 comes soon!
