Sorry, but its still still sitting on the shelf.... There's no class for it to race in here really so there's not a lot of point running it.
Plus...I've got so many other Minis of various types that there's always something else I can run instead. So its unlikely that it'll get a run in a hurry.

Tony

Post TCS

Hello we had our local year race with 1 of the classe's Mini our track is small
and I changed gears to 16 it is legal right ? you can run 16,18 or 20 right
I was told that I had to run a 20 like everyone else my motor got hot so I tried a 16 ... it is legal right..

That's one INSANE ruling.. Of course you can run a 16! Unless your club rules specifically state '20 tooth only' you should be able to run any of the optional 16/18/20 choices.
I think most clubs only state '20T Max' They certainly do that down our way.

As far as I know this thread is about all of the M-chassis so feel free to get involved here regarding the Swift. Many of us have one of them..including me who just finished putting one together last night.

Default MO3R

Tower's set the price of the M03R's at US$165!! Looks like it has a ball diff included too. Which one though? it just says ball type differential.

Pretty pricey for bling and not even a body! But the rear camber links are about the only thing we CAN'T get separately as a hop-up that would improve performance. I've made my own before but they wer't TCS legal obviously but these will be! Guess, I'm getting one

You also couldn't get aluminum rear hubs before either...true, the plastic ones work fine but aren't as pretty.

I don't think it'll be coming with the ball diff, it'd certainly be mentioned in the TamiyaUSA site..

Tony Gray, as a person waiting for their used mini to arrive in the mail, I would like to thank you for all the info at your website. After reading a 100 pages here it was nice to filter out the 'nice stuff' from the 'must have' stuff and get an insight to setup. Not saying others weren't a big help , but it is obvious you have a passion for the car.

Thanks for the nice feedback!

Passion? Some people suggest its more an addiction... ha!

We like to think that our site gives people somewhere to start at least. And its all in one place!
