I agree-- how about a Morris Major-- anybody ever see one of those? I have been a Mini Coop fan for years but I think the new one is ugly

Kyosho did this model of the Honda Civic in a M-size chassis about 15 years before the M01 came out. I forget what the decals looked like,but if i remember correctly they were very similar to the Civic above. The Kyosho chassis is even Fwd. Nice car but a little hard to find these days.

All of these bodies have been made except for the Mark II Supra, The Toyopet was from Toyo Tuning,and the others are 1/10th from ABC.
You can get the ABC bodies pretty easy.The 510 YOu have to wait a while as the kit just got released today,and then the body will be out later.

I've seen one of those Kyosho CRX kits before. A know a Honda memorabilia collector who had one up until recently when he eBayed it... NIB too, unreal.

Another killer M-03 kit would be a '90 model VW GTi 16V with G60 wheel arches ->

Geeze guys can please NOT include the pics again when you 'quote' someone from a previous post..

3 copies of the same pics on the one page really slows us people without hi-speed net down to a crawl! Arrrgh!

Hey, quote means quote, okey ?

And once the pictures are already downloaded inside your harddisk, it doesn't mean it will be download another 3 times for the same pictures. Internet Explorer knows that.

My choice for a new M-Chassis release would be the Honda Civic del Sol.

I really like the Golf/GTi in any form. I agree and think this should be made for an M-chassis.
THe Kyosho M chassis car chassis`s are pretty easy to find but the body shell is very hard to get.

We got these light weight bodies in Today and they are priced the same as the normal body set so dont let anyone hike the price up on you.
Same body,Lighter,Same decals,no box,in a bag.
How much lighter,Sorry i dont know, I havent got the standard shell here as all i have is the light weight ones. If you have an unpainted one i can compare to weight it and let me know and i can weigh a Light Weight one.
