I was never a fan of the Mini, for one they are too small for my 6 foot 5 frame, and also if you have ever worked on them ( or worse the Metro ) you'll know how bad they can be !
But, there have been some very cool modded ones out there, the best I saw was a 6 wheeled pickup, very nice still a mini though
Great time trial cars though, super light weight and very maneuverable.

C'mon Akuhon, you posted em, more info please!

Looks like a Mid or LWB though, not a SWB.

That short TA05 chassis looks like the 30th anniversary Porche 934 kit.

Estimated kit price $500-$600 USD. Wanna buy it Tony?

Hi just finished assembling my Suzuki Swift Mini. I was wondering, since there is no inserts in the box, to I have to go buy some or can I just install the tires on the rims with no inserts?

Thanks, Chris.

I think its too late. Already sold out from most of the major outlets, on pre-order alone!

Chris, the original tyres wont last long anyway, half a dozen runs and they'll be gone anyway. I'd put some inserts in though just to help them out and last a little longer. Its really not all that important which ones.

That's odd, I just built mine last week, and it came with inserts !
I would say try to get a set, unless you are just going to be bashing with the car.

Hey Tony,

This is the link of the mini project. http://www5.ocn.ne.jp/~d-data/mini.html

I still curious what kind of arms they use ? No pics from under the chassis. Looks so short...
Is it tamiya lightweight rev. arm (short ver.) ?

Check also the Pro4-mini, .... quite interesting ...

My bad, I say the inserts after. They were included. I guess I will have to go buy some new tires if those ones aren't good then. The 60D radials, are they better? I heard that you didn't need compound with them, they worked fine as is. I will be using them on carpet.

Translation from the QA sounds like shortened HPI pro 4 arms.

They cut them manually ? and drilled the suspension shaft hole ?
Will be lack of precision, side to side ... IMO.
