The R1 motor lab fans work really well.

Thanks Jason!

What size R1 fan are you using?

Also, which mount works with the M05?

Its the 30 mm fan. R1033 OR R1031. depending on if you want to plug into reciever, or solder direct to esc. For mounting you can use a long screw and some spacers. And mount it to steering post. Or make something custom.

What are you guys doing for Mini Cooper bodies these days?

For years, I had wanted to get an M-chassis and Mini body, but I ended up buying a M.Rage. Now I see it's almost impossible to find a Mini body for a reasonable, or even an unreasonable price. Colt has one available but I can only find it in Australia.

Try the Yokomo fans from Banzai . They are the same fans as WTF (confirmed) with a different sticker. They're generally a few bucks less and Banzai Hobby shipping is super cheap.

They've got the other, more normal WTF/Yokomo fans too.

thanks MonkeyRacing ...good to know.

I can say the worst fans I used were the 3Racing, Yeah, and Integy ...all were crap. Not worth the extra weight on my car and provided barely a whisper of air.

Looks like Hobby King have either copied or brought Tamiya's Cooper molds. They have the Rover Mini and BMW Mini shells for sale:

In regards to the Mini racing class in Australia, everyone is using the Blitz VW Golf GTi shell.

The Hobbyking Mini shells (they also do a Swift) are made by Matrixline in China.
They've been around for years and are excellent quality. They do HEAPS of different shells.

Just pay careful attention to the shipping options. I clicked the wrong one on my order from multiple warehouses. It was a small disaster to get it straightened out.

+1 for the Hobbyking Mini.

I've been running one and it looks great, you can cut the body kit off to make it look more like a standard Mini (see attached).

If you keep your eyes peeled, Phat Bodies will have a Mini bodyshell available in the next 6 months for the M03/M05
