i am runnning kit setup. so this mustbe tamiya 900 i guess...
but keep in mind that my motor is not the fastest one, and then the setup could be not that tricky...
i do own a ta-05 spool too, but i also did not test it right now...

my stock gear was 64/18 actually.
where did you buy the sweep tires from?

and i am sure to be faster than the other car ...

your ratio should be about 7,8:1 .. more or less the same as 64/17...

the tires are great, but hadn't had the chance to try the tamiya S-Grips right now. (for comparing the differences) i hope to have the time for testing this week
they should also be faster , due to the bigger diameter.

Good deal!! I'm in Bermuda, so I've got to import them no matter where they come from. I'll check RC Mart, thanks.

i found a nice blog about the M-Four. (maybe you know this one already, if so, I am sorry for double-posting)

interesting: heat problems with the Novak BL systems are mentioned there too...

That's my comment on there.
my temps never went above 155*F
I've just put some 48P gears on to raise the ratio a bit. 72/19. I also bought a 70, 75 and 78T spurs, just for a larger selection. I gave up on trying to find the Mod .06 pinions. RR spurs fit on like factory too.

RR is Robinson Racing. I ordered them from Amain Hobbies. I was going to order from RC Mushroom, but figured why wait a whole 2 weeks for them to arrive when I can get them in just under 5 days. 48P gears are much easier to find than Tamiya's special pitch gears.

some news,
i upgraded the 3racing alloy bulkheads . the blue is not exactly the same, but you will hardly see if you don't know
see enclosed pics.

i also had the first race with it, and won against M-05s and M-06s , i have been a little slower with my top speed, but guys i made it in the infield my fastet lap, 22 seconds, was nearly 2 seconds faster then the second one

i switched back to tamiya 60d tyres, because of the bigger diameter, and higher top speed.

next race will be held at our model-exhibition..

hm, i just can say , in the race i participate, the m-05s and others have to use the brushed CE4 motor, which is more or less the same as the tamiya sport tuned "black can", so the motor was a little stronger than the silvercan.

in my m-four i had the 380 sport tuned motor (Tamiya # 54393) and hav to say, that the speed, was very close to the 540 sport tuned. minimal differences and the race was held on a track with a long straight. the few centimeters you loose there, will be given you back in the infield

so if you use the sport tuned 380 against the silvercan you will be faster i guess. even if your gear ratio limit is 6:1 (and believe me the motor will get very very hot if you give full throttle for a longer time i gave it a try

interesting also:
the rpms are about 26000-27000 a lot more than the 540s. (measured)

in addition:
i also own the BL three80 13,5t system, but am not allowed to use this combo at this race series.

Hi guys, do you think either of these will work in the TA05 m-four?

If a bunch of people had this car to make a local class I would be all over it but as it sits wouldn't running it in a FWD mini class be kind of unfair?

Has anyone run it in a FWD mini class and how did it fare? What motors did you use to match the 21.5 blinky that are popular in mini racing lately? It's a shame IMO they didn't standardize it with a 540 size.
