Default weight placement in M03

For those of you that use Lipo in your Mini Coopers...

Where do you put the lead weight on the chassis?

thanks.

If you need weight in the back, inside the chassis. If you need weight in the front, inside the bumper!

I will run GT3 this summer. What are the popular bodies? I have not tested but it does not seem to me that the cars are moving fast enough for it to matter.

14 grams in the front bumper
50 grams on the front bumper
28 grams on the inside bottom left of the rear pod
28 grams on the inside bottom right of the rear pod

With this combo on carpet, I did not need to make any changes from my stock carpet setup for the m03-m.

Default part inquiry

i know this is slightly off topic, but thought where better to ask than tamiya experts:

thnx

There are multiple versions of the grey/gunmetal damper cylinders.

Your best bet would be 9805860 from the original TA04R Raybrig NSX. However that is the entire damper cylinder, the end caps are not sold by themselves.

This class would have been awesome to have at the Trackside Race!
Which chassis was a front motored 2wd touring car?
Are these cars and parts hard to find today?
Thank you for the help

The FF01 cars were the front drive sedans. Back in the day we had about 10 of those around here for friendly parking lot bashes. They were blistering quick with the good ol' Green Machine motors!

I wish I still had mine, but alas it went during one of my seasonal R/C fire sales.
