Just got done building my Swift...
Built it following the set up on the Tamiya Site.
Ran it last week at hobby town and it was dialed. TCS here I come!

the last two MO3L Mini Coopers I purchased, in the last year, Tamiya gives you a motor and a speed control...all for about 95.00 US dollars. Does the new Swift also come with a motor and an ESC?

yep,thats the plan if i can get it to work...otherwise GT2 only.

Well I finally bought myself a mini. I ordered the M03 cooper, because I had a real cooper for years in Germany, and I want one for nostalgic purposes. I ordered a bunch of the Tamiya Option Parts. Total spent was over $500 with batteries(I can't believe I have to buy stick packs) and a new ESC. I ordered a Trinity 19 turn motor. I am sure that I will use the Stock motor when I get back to the states, but for right now, I will just be blasting around on some hard tennis courts.

Anyway to get to my question. Will the HPI mini wheels fit on the M03? are any modifications necessary? I would like to run HPI belted radials, and I like the look of the star chrome wheel from HPI.
