Standard weight Tamiya bodies seem a lot tougher than the lightweight versions also.

The second car is a Kyosho. Mid-90s era, supplied with rally shells, can't remember what they called that generation of car but it shares a lot of parts with the Outrage electric buggy.

You use the spacers on the outside to set your ride height. Most people run the Mini with the arms level or just below.

Normally people run a stiffer spring on the front. So medium front, soft...

Not really on topic, but that is a strange buggy/tourer hybrid and judging by the parts on it I doubt it started life as a boxed TA-02.

That generation of cars did handle very nicely (I had a Top...

Yes, you can use other brand motors with your ESC. A 4.5 is a bit faster and a bit harder on the electrics.

One-ways give more steering and more cornerspeed than a spool, but you lose off-power and braking stability because you only have brakes on the rear wheels.

A ball diff is a form of LSD but it is a lot simpler than the diffs you have in a full size car.

Basically it uses the pressure of the plates on the balls to resist the diff action.

Larger pinion/smaller spur gives more top end/less acceleration/higher motor temperatures.

The sport tuned motor can probably pull a ratio around 6:1 quite easily. Aside from that, just gear to...

There is a thread called "Tamiya Mini Cooper" which covers all the M-chassis including the M-03.

Naturally track conditions change as the line comes up, or if artificial grip is sprayed on.

My point being that in off-road, you need to navigate jumps and bumps to run a fast lap. On-road is all...

If you have to manhandle the car around every lap, at some point you are going to miss your line.

Just because the standard ESC doesn't have a LiPo cutoff doesn't mean you can't use LiPo.

It just means you need to be aware of when the car is losing power and stop running immediately. If you...

Not quite.

The screws are the JIS pattern used in Japan. It has a slightly different head profile which gets damaged by US/European Phillips screwdrivers.

If you can find the right JIS...
