  1. I was looking at how on the M-05 PRO, you can mount a Low-pro servo low down without the spacer. So I was thinking, is it the same to mount one one the M-06?
  2. I just took delivery of an M06 'builder kit' of sorts, with all the basic M06 parts without electronics, wheels/tires, body, and motor. I've done a LOT of reading up on the M06, and I have a few questions for those more experienced than I: 1. The manual seems to imply that I'm to install the rear dampers (which go between the arms and the chassis) AFTER attaching the rear arms to the chassis. I'm pretty sure the clearance will not allow this. 2. The manual also mentions to use the 'kit' shock shafts for the rear if I upgrade to aluminum m-chassis dampers, but not for the front. Are the shocks not the same length front to back? 3. The battery holder comes with two mount screws, but there are four holes. Is that right? 4. I'm not seeing any references on the web that indicate whether or not the M05 ver.2 carbon re-inforced suspension arms fit on an M06 without issue, but on visual inspection I don't see why not. Can anyone confirm or deny this? 5. I plan to put some aluminum bits here and there, and as we all know, aluminum should not be attached to aluminum, so there will be places where I will need steel ball connectors. Is it just me or are these impossible to find for sale online (the black ones, not the golden brass ones)? 6. I've considered switching over to 4.8mm connectors and ends instead of the Tamiya 5mm ones, since they seem to do a better job of staying connected. Am I expected to have any problems doing this? 7. Rumor has it that I'm asking too many questions about m-chassis cars on this forum. Is there any truth to this or is it all lies?
  3. I'm wondering if anyone has an M06 lying around that they wouldn't mind trading for some money I'm a simple man, I'd settle for pretty much any kit as long as it's not built, even if it's been opened as long as the bits are all there. That being said I don't even need a body, wheels, or electronics. Thanks for reading!
  4. I SHOULD know this... But my lifetime of experience started with Buggies, including Semi-Pro Racing, then in recent years, RC Scaler/Crawlers - where Foam choice is CRITICAL, due to enormous soft Tires!! But these little M Chassis Cars..... They don't weigh much, and I'm not doing any competition beyond a little weekend Club Racing. Do People even USE Foams in M Chassis Cars?? 😲 If so, I'd imagine that something very firm would be useless. I've got some fairly soft Tires, and would not want the Tread bowing out, killing traction! I've had a M01 two M03s, and a M04. All with bog standard Tires, felt HARD, no Foams. I hope you can help! 😉

    M06 Beetle Kustom

    I built an M06 up from spares and hop-ups I had on hand. Really it's pretty standard fare and didn't think it was substantive enough to bother documenting. Instead I figure I'll just provide a quick rundown of the ingredients so far: M06 chassis I assembled from mostly leftovers of my previous S15 project 53571 fluorine damper set; Tech Racing blue adjusters, 53876 1mm down retainers, blue trf springs rear/yellow front, two-hole pistons front & rear, #200 oil front/ #400 rear Gear diff with some putty, which is probably too stiff to be driveable, so this may get swapped to a ball diff 54268 aluminum motor mount & DF03 heatsink bar Sport Tuned motor Sway-bar kit I made from spares 54604 body mount extensions, as the front posts I had on hand were already too short for the Beetle body 54361 & 54362 carbon damper stays Tech Racing +7mm wide front axles 54237 low-friction kingpins Bunch of pretty aluminum, titanium, & stainless hardware I'm still swapping around wheel and tire combinations, and have a few tricks up my sleeve for the body trim, which will be the bulk of this thread. I've been trying to narrow down my color choice. Currently I am at: PS-40 pink backed with PS-23 gunmetal PS-40 pink backed with PS-49 blue PS-44 green backed with PS-23 gunmetal I think I have too much paint Input or suggestions?
  6. In the preliminary planning stages of an M06 Alfa Romeo Giulia cup racer build. A few pics for motivation. The below pic is the paint scheme I will be shooting for. It will be British racing green and white though, just for something different. I really like the mag wheels on this one. Does anyone know of anything available that looks like these? I want to do mag rims in a gold anodized look. I’ve scoured eBay and a few online retailers, but have come up empty handed. Another shot of the paint and rims. Not sure I will do a racing stripe though. I have already located a decal sheet through MCI racing. Want to try and fab up a lighting kit . Bearings, and some scale exterior bits for them body. Wish I could get my hands on a M06 Pro kit, that would be sweet. Stay tuned, everything is in the mail!
  7. Having injured my back at work earlier this month, I'm currently stuck at home in "recovery" for the next three months. I'm pretty much immobile and getting bored, so I've decided to put this together to pass some of the time: The idea is go all out with the chassis, and make something functional yet still aesthetically pleasing. As stated in the thread title, it's going to be an M06RS, since it will have a 210mm wheelbase, but enough mods to garner the "R" designation. Oh, and I'm going to make it 8mm wider as well Haven't any idea how this will effect handling, but my primary aim is to fill the wheel arches better than the stock configuration seems to offer. A sample of the hop-ups I'll be using: As you can see, most of it is standard Tamiya stuff, with a few other aftermarket makers thrown in for good measure. Not all of it mind you, but this might give you an idea of how methodically I've been planning this build!
