I love my M06, it's a great car so far. I race it on carpet and find it to be very fast and it competes quite well with the FWD minis, it doesn't bump and bang with em tho. So if that's the kind of racing you do might stick with the M03 or M05. Also the biggest reason the M04 flopped was the bastard gearbox...

For a hi grip track, you should be okay. For most other tracks, stick with the M03. For the mid to low grip tracks the M06 is only for the real experts.

I thought the problem with the M04 was the rear geometry----like more toe in on one side than the other among other things. Even those on a hi grip track, could be deadly.
