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?
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!
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!
