Mate, go here rc-mini.net for everything you need to know or search the huge mini thread for ideas. In the end its all down to tire choice and driver skill.

The only hop-ups the M03 needs are bearings, (12- 11x5mm, 2- 8x5mm) Mini CVA shocks, and a sport tuned motor. The stock diff is pretty bullet proof, I wouldn't even try to lock it up in anyway. Since the car is FWD, locking up the diff will only cause it wear the outdrives and shafts quickly. I had 2 M03's in the past both long versions and loved them. I now have another M03M on the way from speedtech with the Fiat 500 body set. I cant wait to have another one!

okay i am finding with mine when i roll onto the throttle (tamiya silver can) it just diffs out on the straight. i tried filling the diff with grease and well its all over the tranny now. i would like to stiffen it up a little but seeing no way to do that locking is the only option i can see.
