ChattavegasSE
2004.10.26, 05:58 PM
Mine will definitly be dumped. I have thought about chopping the roof, too, but since it's die cast; that might be a bit much. I think the bus is wide enough that I can tuck the 31"s. I've got a couple sets of 1/24 Dub City wheels, a couple of nice chrome rims.

Ken Mifune

Twenty-Se7en

I think that a short school bus would be amazing... if you chopped the hight and made it like a semi-hot rodded bus then it could look amazing... it would fit right in with all the bodies being released on the MR-015 :rolleyes:

I have looked into doing one out of sheet styrene (on an old MR01), just trying to find the right frontend to build one off of. One of my old projects that got canned. Heck I even thought about trying to make it more in proportion, that is long and tall. Mainly for the laugh factor.

Oh I'll be in class. And I figured out why my headers suck, the EGR tube blew up; so there's a hole in one header about 1" away from the cylinder head. :eek: Yeah, it's loud and awful, sounds like a certain Honda I know. ;)

Ken Mifune
2004.11.02, 10:15 AM
...so there's a hole in one header about 1" away from the cylinder head.Don't drive too long like that. You'll end up with a scorched cylinder & piston head, and/or cracked valves. In the mean time keep the idle up, no down shifting or off throttle driving.

They've got both kits; the red '04 Mustang and the black RSX.Those are the only two body sets offered; and AFAIK, the only ones that will be offered. These are not availible in the RTR kits; only as a body top set.

have you held the 04 stang up to your z chassie to see how close of a fit it is?

ChattavegasSE
2004.11.13, 12:56 PM
No I haven't. I thought I had the only one in the world, so it'd be a shelf queen. :o I'll go do that now.

ChattavegasSE
2004.11.13, 02:15 PM
Yeah, it can fit. You'll have to cut the XMod's rear body mount out so there'll be room for the motor pod. Using my 01, the wheels line up perfect in the middle length position. Also, the Viper's front clip seems like a good choice; but it will either need to be trimmed a little on the sides or the Mustang's bumper clip will need to be widened. It's off by maybe .1mm on each side. The Mustang's side skirts are kinda in the way of where the side body mounts will be. You can either remove the side skirts altogether or make some very long (deep) side mounts. The MZ chassis a lot more narrow than the XMods' bodies. As a result, you might be able to run wide wheels front and rear.

pHREDD

I need a set of Micro RS4 wheels to stick on the Focus so it'll grip. BUT I'll have to fab a new rear axle for them to work. I thought the stock wheels were held on with nuts; like any other car; but it's just a straight axle with a locking/tension nut hammered on each end. :rolleyes: I dunno; I might be able to cut off the stock tires and glue some soft compound rubbers on the stock wheels. :confused:

Use a small screwdriver over a soft pen or old firm tire for leverage and to protect the can from denting!

2004.11.23, 03:22 PM
are you wanting to keep the old motor? if not then dremel the armature shaft right up next to the pinion, place the pinion in a small 1/4 inch socket and use a small center punch to tap out the rest of the pinion shaft

I got the pinion off the old motor and got it hammered on the new motor. That sucker screams. With the motor out of the car, it's twice as loud as the car ever was. :D Problem is, the motor doesn't want to fit where the stocker did, so the Dremel is getting a workout. :rolleyes:


With the stock motor and the giant Tamiya tires, it takes a while to get going; I'm thinking about either cutting them down or replacing with a set of Micro RS4 tires; which were just a little too small.

i got bored last night and put together another 01 out of the parts i have :rolleyes: it has an iwaver board in it with the SO4 motor and 12 tooth pinion, i just cant seem to keep it straight. I now have a 01 Skyline with SO4, an 01 Vitz all stock, an 01 CLK few hopups, an 02 Ferrari F-50 with a few mods (needs a diff) and a Monster with a BMW X-5 body on it, and it looks sweet :D

ok i have to admit something, i screwed up the electronic in my monster this week, i dont know what went wrong, but when i opened it up the fet stack i put on last week was all fubar. it looked bad, so i removed it, and started all over, first i had reverse but no forward, then i had forward but no reverse :rolleyes: i dont know what the deal is, i tossed in a stock 01 board so it is running again. i am going to either save the monster board to be sent off for a professional fet stack when i get the money, or return it to stock and save it just in case something else happens. never know when your fets will burn out, right fred?

It handles very good with the wide rears. They stick out a little but they do clear when when the h plate flexes. I mainly put them on just for kicks (and to rib eric)but after running it on the track it handles great. I just wish the tire selection for these wheels was better

hey Fred, think you could run 2 narrow tires side-by-side on that extra wide wheel? i think it is very possible since a narrow tire only measures about 7mm wide ;) i think the traction would be much greater than the foams, keeping them on the wheel is the trick :D

The body is in very good shape (looks new). the only minor damage is both mirrors are off. It was only raced 1 time (the 1st all day'er at the courts). Considering what I payed for the body new (whew), I couldnt part with it for $10. Its not eating anything so I guess I will hang on to it. As far an spare motor pods for the MM02 I dont have any.
