    Cleanest way to add LED headlights to this M-05

    I had a similar set on my Grasshopper (and a crawler ages ago), wired to the 7.2 battery, but I removed them as the light output was quite poor. They use old school bulbs rather than LEDs. Might be OK if you don't mind carrying a 9V square cell about as well? You could get light buckets from the E30 BMW, and modify them to fit (other circular light bucket options are available) and fit an LED kit. EDIT: Here's an old pic of mine installed on a Landie crawler rig I built. As you can see the LED "sidelights" completely outshine the Ram bulb headlights.

    TT01 wider track?

    You should be OK with the existing arms and dogbones. it's from the hub the the wheelnut that you're gaining track. The steering geometry might be affected, but not by much.

    That's amazing, really beautiful work!
  4. There isn't a huge difference between them for drifting, I've used both. I prefer the TT01 for it's slightly more efficient drivetrain. Some say the TL01 is more tail happy.

    M03 Laser Cut Internal Aerial

    It's a neat solution, though a scrap piece of lexan usually does the trick for me. It looks as though you could incorporate a roll cage in to the design, or at least a hoop!

    Tamiya M Chassis Wheels

    Cool, just saw your post on DRC, now to get that shorten TB chassis back in action!

    Tamiya M Chassis Wheels

    What drift tyres can you get for the Mchassis wheels? I tried a set of Mini wheels on a TT01 in the past, I've always thought a set of 13" Minilites under an AE86 would look the business!
  8. Hi Folks! I also post on scale 4x4 rc forums, and someone there is looking for a "Hard" Mini Cooper shell to go on a M-chassis. Has anyone seen anything that would fit the bill? http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=16636 Kamtec only have the "new" MINI in ABS, and the Tamiya static kit is too small to fit. Any where else he could look?

    An Idea I Had Which Might Seem A Bit Mad

    Great thread, I never got around to chopping up my TL before I sold it on, though I did pick up a shortened TB chassis which might do , but it needs a cleaning. I tried a M03/M04 twin motor job, http://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.a...90&sid=5109 but front and rear gear ratios were off, and I had nowhere to put the second battery ( I used 2xESC and 2xBattery) so I lashed it on top with cable ties, which resulted in a pretty top-heavy chassis! One thing I might recommend us to use M03 arms and shafts, to bring the wheels back under the body? You'll probably lose a little in ride height/articulation, but less than you might think, since you're running long shocks and rally blocks.

    How Much Is A Can Of Tamiya Spray Paint?

    I think I paid 10 for a can of Tamiya PS in a local model shop a while back. I've ordered online since...

    Xc - Recommended Tyres

    Have you seen the Trail Doctors by Dr. Kucho? They're on the scale4x4.org, slightly taller than the Hilift stockers, but their soft compound means they perform much better.
