Rebuilt the shocks. Kit 1-hole pistons, 500cst oil front and 450 cst rear. As you say, piston fit is not great!

Wonder if a better piston would be cost effective Vs 3 racing or yeah racing aluminium dampers?

What am I missing in fitting the brushless motor? The motor tabs hit the chassis before it mates flush with the motor plate. I also tried a hobbywing motor with tabs on other side and they then hit the removable chassis brace piece?

You're fast enough, give us a chance . I just need to know how to fit the motor per my above issue.

You're missing nothing. This is a design flaw. You've got two options. Shim the motor away from the motor plate until the motor tabs clears the chassis, or file down the chassis where it touches.

Ok, I did not want to be in violation of TCS rules as my local is actually hosting one this year but not sure I have an option, shims are possible I suppose too, it's going to be a tight fit wiring wise. Seems odd TCS series would pick a motor that does not really fit the darn thing. Crazy. Or change the rules to Silver can and problem solved.

Not many brushless motors fit without modification.

I think Fred mentioned above that some of the Fixed timing 21.5 spec motors will have their motor solder tabs modified crime Reedy to fit correctly. He also said you can mod the tabs easily.

New TCS rules call for Reedy 297 currently out of stock until February but the tabs are still in the wrong place to fit without modification. If you flipped the solder bullets around then you hit the brace, can't win either way. Eyeballing shaving the chassis area at top seems best route to me.

I'm sure I had read it somewhere, but all I could find was Al mentioning at the Nats having the tabs removed. This was over on the TCS Racing thread. Sorry for the misinformation.

I hope they have the supply issue sorted before the regionals start.

Why is it extremely challenging to find any M sized bodies for this car? Did all the licensing run out for Tamiya, as it did with the Mini?

My M07 is on order with a bunch of parts for the build. Which I look forward too and more so if I can find a lexan shell from Tamiya.

Finally got around to finish up the details on my new M07. We don't race them locally but I enjoy ripping fast laps in Mini's during practice I decided to run the Esc on the passenger side.. I ran my M05 like that with great result. To follow up on the Motor tab problem, I was baffled at Tamiya when I first realized the flaw. Since I don't race TCS I cut and used a Dremel to make it happen. Turned out good just disappointing. Everything else on the kit makes me super happy! I still have some Alum ball studs and sway bar kit to be put on.

Since I had these TRF Big bore shocks on my retired TA06 I decided to steal them for this build. I added the carbon towers, alum out drives and will be starting at 100K in the diff for black carpet. I just need to add my rx and I will be reporting back after some testing

There are a lot of current options actually, just lost some along the way sadly. I run the Miata for one of the better stock bodies and switch between the Swift for looks at a small sacrifice of higher cg. I prefer the 225mm wheel base personally.For 239mm I feel like they need a new lid release.

sure, lots of options. Nothing in stock. tqracing is all out, limited options on RCmart, eBay doesnít have much. Not a Mazda fan and donít want to settle for the CRX. Blitz bodies donít interest me either.

please share what bodies are available
