Yes there was a black, silver, and the original teile...

I thought about doing it, saw some one do it on a black body... so i figured why not replicate it?.... kyosho then came out with their own version just when i was about to finish my version...

Here's the link....

Now back to your regular programming....

I killed my PCB today

Never had this before, but it's fully on me. I wanted to replace the white antenna with a black one. But at the bottom of the antenna there was same white stuff which I had to remove to resolder a new antenna. Under this white stuff there was an SMD component hidden, which accidently with my nail was removed. It is a very small component, while trying to fix it back it sprung away while I was holding. I don't think I would have resoldered properly, but I lost it anyway.

So I had to order a new one, on r c m a r t they are in promotion.

Btw, do we have an electronics section? I cannot seem to find it.

I guess Mini-Z Science. There are FET threads there, and of course elsewhere.

If you ordered a direct replacement board, just remember to take a picture and notes about the current configuration. There are 9(?) points to solder (3 steering pot, 2 steering motor, 2 switch, 2 power). Wait, antenna? Are you replacing an MR02 board with a newer MR03 board?

The MA03F has an MR03 Sports board. The board I ordered (MD310) has all the accessory on it for MA03F, so no need to solder I think.
Were there other options then?

If you're buying it that way, it should just drop in. I think you only need to undo the battery terminal post screws, and the power switch and steering motor screws, and then put them all back with the new board. No soldering needed.

So I finally recieved the board, installed it this morning, turns out there is another issue with this board as well. When I am more then 3m away from the car with the Tx, the connection is lost (LED turns off), just by reorienting the car or Tx it comes on again. Gutted! It is undriveable

Got my Megane finally (nice yellow one). Looks awesome but the body fit is VERY loose. Would need to be taped on to actually race with it.

I did the DWS rear shock upgrade (man those are hard to find now) and seems like it made a difference but honestly stock it's hard to tell.

They need a VE (Brushless) upgrade for this thing though eventually. Right now the stock motor is fine for home use but would be rough at the track lol.

I'll try an XSpeed it in next.

I got mine as a birthday gift this week as well, great looking. Went for the yellow one.

Hoping for a refund of the board so I can buy a new one in a local shop, want to get this car running as soon as possible...
