Hi guys, just thought i would drop in here to show you all what i did with the Monster Mini shell that Tony Gray helped me source from Rainbow-Ten.

Chassis is a CRC GenX with 12mm wheelbase extension, Chevron Shell, with Tamiya monte carlo sticker set.
Should handle close to a 12th pancar, with classic style.

Our first (and as far as we know anyones first?) full IN-CAR video footage inside a Mini during a race.

Click here to check it out and be totally amazed. It's also damn funny too...

That is just so cool. You guys seem to come up with the weirdest mini stuff to do, and its always funny too!

OK guys, I got tired of not having a setup sheet for the M03...so I made one...or 2. One has a Cooper and the other is a Swift in the backround. I don't have all the fancy software so bare with me...but they'll do the job! If anyone needs the cleaner "Office" version...let me know and I'll drop it via email.

the front is 2 sedan inserts and the rear is the hop up hard foam inner sponge 53255

The car was not loose at all. it had good turn in and the back end was planted. In my experience puting too much tire sauce on the front can cause the back end to come around really bad. It can also wear them out fast too. My theory is, because the cars are so underpowered making the car push is a good way to get good corner speed. minis with a lot of steering usually scrub a lot of speed in the turns.

Hi guys. After marshalling minis for a couple of months I could not stand by and watch so many others having so much fun, and have taken the plunge with an M03 (gotta love the orignal Cooper shell!!). I was also gifted a near new M03M roller by a very nice couple at my local track who had a few too many minis to race.

I've just given it a run up and down my street and found that it is not very stable in a straight line - it seems to want to wander of its own accord. I'm running a Futaba 3010 servo with the stock standard servo saver and a bit of toe out. I can't really measure the toe out accuratley as my setup guages are a bit big for the mini's width, but I shortened the turnuckles up a couple of turns each side over the stock set up. Everything else on the car is standard, except for a set of CVA shocks from a TA05 (with spacers under the piston and short springs to reduce ride height).

It looks like the servo saver may be the problem as it has a fair amount of play. I was just wondering if this is fairly common and if so how you guys have fixed it. I've considered using something like a Kimbrough with some spacers under the servo mounts to move it down - would this help?

In the long run I don't think it is going to make too much difference - at least it gives you something to do on the straights. I'm really looking forward to giving this a run in this weeks club championship (last race for the year ) and getting the Italian Job M03 out for next season.

Cheers guys.
