This is our set-up page. It gives you our specs for mini suspension setup. But basically your car is WAY too high...

Thanks Deves... Hopefully we can spread the gospel of all things Mini to heaps of people.

And also I hope entertain a bit with some of our sillier stuff too!

My personal favourite is the oval racing video, damn that's fun to do!

Hey Tony, if your interested or anybody else, I have just about all of the parts from Tamtech that makes a M01-02 into a 4 wheel drive. Now how it does it and how to put it together, is the farthest thing from my mind. I got it in trade years ago and just couldn't bring myself to throwing it away. Somehow you cut the gear housings and it uses a belt drive, but beyond that is beyond me. Basically if you know anyone that might have the instructions, then you'll know how to put it together, but now it's all parts. I guess Tamtech was trying to make 4 wheel cars back in the day and used the mini as a base.

!!! how can you get a wrong gear mesh in a mini? each pinnion must use each screw holes so the gear mesh is allways right ...

If you use a different manufacturers pinion gear, there is a slight difference in size... and a 17 turn motor....

Another update to rc-mini.net online NOW

Go to the Rally Mini page (M03) where we've added our latest Rally Mini Video onto our Youtube page.

Its a big file but worth the wait for the download I promise!
