Lipo's for mini.

IP 4200 40 C fitted with Tamiya plug or changed to Deans

IP 3800 50 C with corally plugs only

These would be the most popular with mini racers. The 3800's require you to use open type battery retainers as used on the MO3. The MO5 you need to change the battery holders.

Default New Protoform body

There's a new Protoform 225mm body. Sorry, for the poor quality of the pictures. You can see a better view at the Protoform website.

I think somebody needs to teach your camera man how to hold that video camera a bit more stable!

hahaha sorry that was me, the old cam records interlaced video (which is not LCD display friendly). So i had to merge/blend the video to de-interlace it. The most noticible symptoms are artifacts that show up, where in this case, thought to be a shaky hand.

Cheers!

Tony P, I think what happened to Tony G's gearbox and the battery life shortage are related. Carpet is tough on gearboxes and, given the greatly reduced wheelspin from asphalt, it's harder on batteries, too.

Why didn't Tony just fix his M-03? They're good cars that way: just replace the broken bits and go. That's about a 30 minute endeavour, tops.

BTW: Minus 5? That's it? Pffft! Then again, I'd keel over at +45, so I guess we're even.

Fix the car? Why, when I had a perfectly good brand new one there anyway...that was only a 5 minute job! That's why I take 3 cars with me....

Disqualified ... sanctioned class rules state that chassis are not allowed to be changed

Future events the chassis wil be marked and checked

Lucky I dont race anywhere under AARCMCC rules then...

Actually, on a Mini they'd need to mark anywhere up to 6 chassis parts wouldn't they!

Some more pictures of the choice parts. The new external motor mount is 8mm thick, which is the same for the bottom rear suspension mount with the built in 1 degree of rear toe. The carbon fibre front shock tower is 3mm thick.
