ruins the point of running mini IMO.

its a cool car, but we already run touring cars and then mini classes on their own.

For those people entertaining the thought of splashing out their cash on an M Four, with the idea that 'Oh I'm sure you can fit a 540 in there somehow...'

Take note of these pictures of our car. There is literally no possible way to put a 540 motor into this car without machining new bulkheads and a new upper deck. That's what you'll need to do..

Anyone know which Stabilizer can be used in the Front of this? I just finished putting TA05 aluminum bulkheads front and rear. The rear M05 stabilizer fit on the rear no problem. But the front one seems a bit short and I would have to change from split blocks to a solid 1XA block or the ball connector on the suspension arm will hit the blocks.

Hey torg, I just posted on you blog, but not sure if you're more active here.
What size pinion are you using with your 13.5T motor, and where are you getting Tamiya's MOD .06 pinions from, or any pinions that will fit? 48P def will not work unless you use maybe HPI's spur gear from the Cup Racer.
