Conversion from Tamiya chassis M-02 (RD drive) to M-01 (FW drive) 2 weeks 3 days ago #71354

The front-wheel drive M-01 and rear-wheel drive M-02 chassis are symmetrical; Depending on where you mount certain parts, they can be converted from one to the other.




The chassis I have is a 239mm M-02L and I want to convert it to an M-01 with the same parts.




Hubs, steering arms, bumpers and body mounts need to be removed and swapped.




The wheels shafts are also swapped:




the "M-01L" already assembled:




The steering servo rod needs to be lengthened as the servo is now located behind the battery. For this I have used some electronic circuit board spacers that also had the same thread as the rod:

A french magazine did an article on the mixing and 4wd m mods. Mixed a m01 with m02.

thats pretty cool. Is there any other m-chassis that can be swapped like that? Or did they change too much after the M-03 chassis
