Well I was lucky enough
to score a new monster-mini body off of ebay. I keep looking at the new Express II pro chassis. I'm sure lots of future $ parts will be available to trick the car out. I wouldn't mind having a radical carpet 4WD monster mini ever since I saw the mini.net site. Not to race really, just an outrageous mini to fly around the track and to keep as a show car.
So that got me thinking if the 1/12th assassin would be a higher quality car or if the Express would be the better canvas for the future. While NOTHING pretty is made for any Corally car, one can still replace the shocks,screws, etc, to dress it up. As an RDX owner, I know it's a top quality starting point. What I wish for is a 415MSXX shortened chassis. You think it would look too weird to see the tires sticking out 1/4" each side?
Then trying to think outside the box, perhaps a light 1/12 pan car with 6V 3200 lipo/ mod motor would be the "ulitimate" package?
Interested in your opinions gentlemen.
I'm leaning 80% towards the 4WD touring style chassis. They are so amazing to look at.
