It really is going to depend on your track and surface. Since there is literally zero adjustment with the car, just start with 2 or 3 piston,1 o-ring inside the shocks for rebound stroke, 40wt (or tamiya yellow 400) oil, a little toe out in the front and see what it does.

We run the fastest possible at the Tamiya track. 64T spur, 29T pinion. I just have the 5mm wide hexes on mine.

Default Troy NY TCS Race

I tried to sign up for the Troy race and registration was closed three weeks before the race. I have been racing TCS since 1996 and you could always sign up any time before the race, why the change?

Yep..I've seen them in both cars at multiple events...id say the jury is out on the handling in an M05v2 though.

I have an M05V2 and plan on using a shorty pack, but I don't like the idea of taping the battery in. Is it OK to modify the battery mount for a more positive retention method?

I'd say no. Taping batteries in is very normal for M-Chassis cars, sedans, etc. There is even a specific Hop-Up Option available to aid taping the short batteries in.

TCS General Rules section:
1. All chassis platforms must be built per the instruction manual. Altering their basic structure and design is prohibited.
4. It is strictly forbidden to re-engineer or modify the car in any way other than with Tamiya Hop-Ups or kit supplied accessories.

Okay. I just never have any luck with taping batteries in. That should give you some idea how often I hit the boards.
