Thanks.

I actually meant the decals, esp for the lights and details.

Default TAMIYA M BODIES

I went to the bluegroove website (becuase I'm from Ontario I like it !!!)

Can you define what bodies require what offset wheel adapters/spacers?

Hi, is there a way to adjust the m-06 so there can be a quick battery change without the need for taking off the body?

Uh....without taking off the body? Not really.....the battery is pretty much buried right in the middle of the tub.

Odd request guys

Im going to build an M06 up to look like an old car of mine.

Whats the most powerful engine/esc combo I could bolt in to it and what mods/parts do I need to make sure it doesnt demolish the diff/gears etc the first time I hit the throttle? No, its not for racing

Regards,
Steve

Yes, tried to think about something, but my inspiration is gone

The best thing so far is leaving the battery brace off and stick the lipo with velcro (and a ribbon around the lipo to get it out easily).

If any ideas feel free to let them know.

Just ordered a M06 and waiting for delivery. Been thinking about also picking up a fwd chassis. I have the M05 in consideration but also thinking about the HPI Switch. I know Tamiya makes great products but is the Switch any good?

As said it is horrible. It was a great idea gone wrong.

If you want to see and drive a very very good Mini you should look at the ABC Grid/Gambado. Now that is how a Mini should be built ... and cheap

Hi Mudvayne,

agree with you, same for me!
Just had on the last race an issue I do not understand so far on mine:
After the long straight in the curve I became massive oversteer, not at the curve entry, but more in the middle / end of the curve, shortly before hitting the gas again!
It came so quick, that I was 2 or 3 times turning 180° round...
It was not from begin of the final on, just starting after some laps, which I find a bit strange. Must be something in my setup I guess.

Wanna share yours?

Hi guys, just sharing.

Ran my m06 yesterday. Looked like a drunk driver. Car wandering, hard to correct.

Culprit for me was the front camber. Had it at 1.5 degrees. Turned the ballcups 1full rotation longer, so less camber.

Car became very good.

That sounds interesting,
should control my actual camber again.

At themoment Iīm overthinking rear drive train on my car again,
Iīm still in doubts what is better: M03 balldiff, or my 3 Racing gear diff,
which I built very smooth for RWD.

Does anybody have some experience to share?

BR,
Matthias

Matthias, the first thing I would check is to make sure that you dont have too much dual rate in your radio. What could happen is that the front tires are turned so much that the car will slide, then as it slows down enough will start to make the turn then spin out. As far as setup, I'm running 35 weight shock oil with the hard kit spring in the front, with 30 weight/medium kit spring in the back. no more than 1 degree camber all the way around and kit tires. Also, make sure you have the correct tires on the front and the rear. Hope this helps.

Ken

@ Ken

Thanks a lot for the new input!
This sounds really logical to me, and would explain, why it gets worse in the middle of tin the race, as the tires get more grip!
My first thought was a too stiff gear diff, but wasnīt really logic, as the gear diff will probably get weaker with warmer oil. Didnīt explain the rather good grip at beginning of the run.
I will check the dual rate and reduce it next race.

In principle I run also spec tires, but went to S-Grips front and rear to get more front grip, but for sure car is more settled with different tires f/r as kit.
Also tried double stuffing te rear wit an additional insert in the rear. (tipp here in the forum), and it reduced wear in the rear. But maybe it wasa bit too much.
Anyway, switching tires front too rear didnīt solve my problem, so I excluded this for the moment.
Camber is another thing. Maybe I got too much understeer by too much rear camber, and compensated with too much dual rate.

A lot of new things to tryout now.
Will also try your spring combo next time.

BR,
Matthias
