    Ok, some more progress here. I made up some magnetised body mounts in Fusion- they screw into the normal M06 positions so it's nicely modular, just swap the mounts and pop on any other M06 body:

    You can see it also has electronics now. Bit of a mish mash, ancient useless servo, but it has plenty of speed with a Tamiya Torque Tuned motor, 1080 and 3s. I should say, I've removed the stock M06 electronics plate for neatness- modern electronics don't need all that space anyway.

    I've also narrowed the track with 4mm hexes and added camber- a little in the front, a lot at the back. There's a substantial amount of toe in at the back which is a bit annoying looks wise but I think I have to live with it. Stance is otherwise pretty excellent though:

    I've also printed a load of details which will need, er, detailing. Love the exhaust!

    And after some testing I've trimmed the front wheelarch a little for full steering. It's not all that noticeable and Lem is incorporating it in the model I believe:

    And the testing has been very fun! It's easy to forget how fun these little Tamiya chassis are, especially in rear wheel drive:



    Cheers!

    Awesome progress!

    To fix the silly toe-in in the rear, use Tamiya #53345. Which is toe-in uprights for TL01/M03, flipped side on the M06 will straighten the toe-in

    Ok, sorry I haven't posted for ages- work's been crazy catching up with all the stuff we didn't do earlier in the year.

    Anyway, I finally found an afternoon to do some paint mixing/airbrushing and I think it's come out quite nicely. Also added some of the details and did some molotov chroming:

    A few more details to add and I can wrap this one up.
