Hi all,

I'm running at another club this weekend that may start racing Mini's. As not many of us will be there they will put us in with the GT12's. I'll have the M05 in silvercan form and the M03 in 13.5t brushless form. Do I stand a chance against the 13.5t GT12's?

If when you say "GT12" you mean 1/12 scale pan cars with foam tires (like the RM01), then I think you will be a moving chicane.

I think he means M-scale cars like the ABC Genetic, Grid or Goose or Atomic VMii. Even with these the M03 or M05 would be moving chicanes.

No, GT12 is a class for cheap pan-cars in the UK.

Just curious: What is the best source for Mardave chassis and which one would be considered the most basic and affordable? There's no chance of ever getting a Mardave class going here, but I'd like to have one around.

Ironically the Mardave Mini is a nice looking car and cheap over here. Nice basic design and rwd

Whilst running the 13.5t set up, what pinion would be best? Also would the fast gear set up be a good idea?

We had a guy testing a Superstock at our Club with a view to having it as a class between Mini's and TC's, they are far more agile than the Mini and a good bit faster too, better use of the motor because of the gearing options, you'll do well to keep with them.

Probably Mardave themselves.

You'll be undergeared with kit gearing, although personally I don't even think 13.5 is worth putting in the car, you will just wheelspin away all the power.

How does the different sized pinions effect the Mini's, smaller = more accelaration?

Would the fast gear set be better? And with what pinion?

I understand the EZrun set up used in the Mini is a 10.5t motor? I must admit I've only ran mine up the street but it does seem a bit faster than the silvercan, but like you say, loads of wheelspin!
