Time Tunnel/Goldstar Stockists do bearing kits at a reasonable price but if you need the odd few I can give you the email of my bearing man. His are 55p each + postage.

Tyres I suggest either M or S grips but the kit items maybe ok outside. The surface is quite abrasive so therefore may suit them. Time will tell on that one.

Upgrades aren't really necessary but you could look at the alloy Tamiya shocks.
The plastic hubs and servo saver could prove weak on the wooden tracking we use outside so possibly the alloy ones of those...

Simon/James'/Tims car has been re-worked to allow large lipos in so you can look there for guidance.

I have been busy building up a second car for Mini Me ( pun intended ) so don't say I haven't warned you :D

Cheers Chaps,

I'll go the dremel route if others have with no adverse effect.

Bearings bought as advised, will sort shocks.

Till tomorrow

Are these the corrct shocks http://www.fusionhobbies.com/Tamiya-Low ... a53155.htm

if so its cheaper to buy a M03r kit just for the shocks, hubs and tyres!

There is a 3 Racing set that is a direct replacement too, and a little cheaper than the tamiya ones.

A few people use them at eastbourne, and we allow them as an alternative to the Tamiya ones.

The shocks you get with the R are only a plastic version though, so many people still upgrade them to alli.

M-03R has arrived so if anyone wants an unused M-03 rolling chassis I have one.

I do need some cells though, so if anyone has correct shape Lipo's for sale I'll take them.

Also, what pinion should i use. They seem to be 16,18 or 20 when i am used to 12, 13 or 14's!

Use the 20t Simond. That's all you will ever need.

Oh, and it will pay for itself after buying 5 Black Can's ;)


OK, perhap's it's going away from the spirit of the class but it in the long run will work out cheaper.
What are your thoughts?
