Are they still making the HPI Mini body? I was told months ago that they were no longer available?

pink = STI. lol im not sure where i bought that battery pack
but it was popular back like 10yrs ago. lol

there's really not much room on the M04M from wat i found to place
stuff inside like the M03'. with the RX (XXL) having the crystal on
the side of the housing, it kinda limited me of how to mount it. but
im sure you racers will find a way.

for my driveway touring car running mabuchi, i doubt its going to
make much difference. the rx weighs like nothing...


minicrapper - you seem to be very familiar with your orientation. lol

was a little difficult to paint on the porch while it was raining out side
with high humidity. each coat cooled the body and condensation
started appearing. regardless, got it painted and dried with a
hair dryer. looks pretty good so far. going to make it look like
the box.

I just thought it may have been still listed without being updated after they had finished production of them.

Oh well - thanks guys!

NT - Who knows for sure. You can call HPI. Their customer service on the phone is good. I haven't had much luck emailing them. You can find some of the HPI mini bodies on the RCBoyz website. I think they're asking just under seventeen dollars for them.

Looks good kenchan. Do you know if the alfa kit is still available?


@ minicrapper

Seek help. Get a mini kit and you'll be cured

I just swapped all my good bits to my Suzuki Swift. I need to get another heatsink for my Mini. Anyone got a spare? We are doing a full stock race now and the Swift is closer to stock than my Mini. Does anyone know if they race Mini's in Las Vegas? Does the TCS go thru there?
