hi all, Came in 1st in the B division m03 race in Taipei. 30 minis in total and we all had to use the Chevron Monster "M" body. Awesome sight all those cars. Check out some pics. There were more mini competitors than stock car action. Its really popular here now.
Enjoy...

So they might be sorta rare but they aren't really in huge demand either. I still have a spare body shell (MIB) but I wouldnt pay $100 USD for one, no way.

the shop was asking $100CND not USD

which is actually about $86usd as I'm writing this..(still expensive)

You have me confused. The Honda S2000 was on a M04L chassis with sedan tires.
The S800 was on a M02M or M02 (sorry can't remember) with the smaller mini size wheels.
Both had unique wheels to the body.

It certainly is the S800, although it was my bad to associate it with the M-04L..

It certainly looks long enough to fit one, though..

I think ABC makes a S800, I will be buying that truck when it comes out too.

I just finished painting my ABC Suzuki Swift, IT ROCKS. I will get some pics at my local track tonight. I will be painting up my Honda FIT over the xmas holidays.

Where did you find these pics? And that is not the Nissan Cube, the grille and lights are different.

well according to all the text that accompanies the pics (above and on the site I got them from) say it's a Cube.....
http://www.pro-s-futaba.co.jp/hsphoto/prs-3.htm

if yo translate the page it says "It is the NISSAN cube of ジェネティック."

and obviously the ad says "Xanadu Cube"

Xanadu is a famous Cube tuning company in japan and they changed the grill and then ABC copied the tuned version... happens all the time.. Yokomo's drft cars for example are all based on "tuned" versions of the real cars
