thanks for the reply, What you mean by in under extreme condition ?
Currently, i'm playing my M03M for leisure when theres isn't any nitro race at my country as now its monsoon period. keep on raining like that is no tommorow.
And what i know, is that the play time depend on what kind of battery i'm using, if for example, I continue running till the battery flat like ard 20 min, does it consider under extreme abuse ? T
The reason why i stick on tamiya plug is becos my charger are meant for my nitro car and all the connection wire are not in dean plug.

your reply is great help to me.

Take Off dont make Mini tyres... Well they do, but they sell them as RP (Ring of Persons) tyres.
The best? Not where I come from. Certainly down here their performance is very inconsistent.
Either way though the news of the confirmed death of X patterns is a sad thing.

Hmmm So I bought the last body? Dangit I was hoping to get a couple more.

If you're looking for the Rally Chrome look for the "K" parts All the trim parts the last time I looked are still available from Tamiya America.

BTW where's a pic of your mini with the new mirrors?

You might look into the new mini express from RCMart. Suppose to have mini sized foams coming out. Or you can true down some used TC foams and use an HPI Cooper body. The wheel openings are bigger on this body.

If you look at the flyer from the distributor, they said HPI is looking at making a comparable tire for the mini so all is not lost. Maybe it'll be better than the X Pattern.

I know it says they're doing another one...but I was just a big fan of the X patterns.

Sure I've got about 20 pair stashed away as it is anyway.......
