  1. For future reference they are all 0.6mod pinions, but as alvin says, you can't go smaller with the fixed motor positions you have. Just get a way slower motor. 55t or 80t.
  2. Got the body reamed and trimmed. Need some body post extensions to lift the rear, but it's looking good. Love the slammed in look if the short wheelbase. The rebuild has revealed quite an oversteer balance, but it rotates well. Softer rear springs and no rear anti roll bar and it seems OK. Of course I have no idea what it will do on carpet, but we'll see.
  3. I am liking the look for this. Looking forward to seeing the builds and hearing how they run.
  4. Thread resurrection! I am back tinkering with the FF03. It has been languishing all summer as it doesn't fit any of my race classes, and has only had one run out at a practice day. Now we are indoors again, we have new rules with a spec core rc 21t motor for anything other than gt12 and TC. This means I can give it a go, and as I have loved my FF01 outdoors, but worried about spares in the rough and tumble of indoors. There are lots of m chassis racing, and given I have a TA02 and FF01 with short wheelbase options, I thought I would go with the spirit of tight indoors tracks and m chassis and go short wheelbase too. Kamtec do a cheap Saxo HPI repro which is supposedly 238 wheelbase, but was easy to tweak the 4GR with spacers to get it spot on as the shell seems a little short. The stock short FF03 is 233. More to follow.....
  5. All three are softer than the softest hard springs from the 53440 set. I have both.
  6. @OoALEJOoO Probably 53163 road rally spring set. They're about half the stiffness of the usual onroad springs. I use them on my rally car
  7. M07 has never been sold with a shell. Buy the chassis then choose a cool shell elsewhere.
  8. They can be built shorter for M chassis, but they are native 55mm without spacers. Mini CVA can be built down to 55mm with loads of spacers giving only 7mm stroke. Super mini cva are shorter body and rod so max length is 55mm with short eyelet, but you can put the large spacer in to get 49mm which works on m chassis
  9. Aren't the super mini cvas 55mm eye to eye so 60mm overall length? You can shorten them by inserting the internal spacers from the piston sprues. The only dampers shorter are alloy. M chassis 54000 are 50mm eye to eye, and super short big bore dampers are 45mm.
  10. TA04RR? Feel like a parallel to the TA07RR Also, bravo on the spectacular list
  11. Got the long screws I have been waiting for so finally got to try and install this part I designed - a mounting bracket for a TT02 foam bumper: I tried designing a part to replace the buggy bumper, but it was ending up very large and expensive, so I came up with this h frame item. It has hexes on the bottom of the legs which fit the corresponding recess in the TA02 bumper, and those are M3x45 screws. This is the 53mm deep foam bumper, trimmed a little to clear the shocks (just!). Top plate goes on and held down with M3 nyloc nuts. The idea was to have the foam touch the gearcase so that some of the loads are braced by the chassis, not just having the foam flapping about on the kit bumper. From the front: And from the underside with my Spec6 shell on.

  13. @ruebiracer I don't think that position will work on mine unfortunately. I have the plastic towers still. If i can't get it to fit then i'll just have to get the carbon towers 😁
