The quicker you order, the quicker it gets to you....



I want to emphasise again too, we don't make any money out of these, you're getting them at the cheapest price we can get.

I have been considering getting a mini, and looking through the rules, it only allows a 20tooth pinion. Is this to keep everyone equal?
I can see a pretty easy way around this, I am a toolmaker and could make a new 20tooth pinon, but a larger diameter using a different pitch, and make a new smaller spur to suit. So I would still have a 20tooth pinion, it would just be bigger than others..... If I did this would I get picked on???

Why CHEAT ????????

You obviously have not had a look inside a Mini gearbox area. You would have to re-engineer all the internal gears as well.

What is the point. It is all about cars with equal gearing

I wasn't going to do it! I was just curious, I understand Mini's are about fun. But looking at the rules it seems to not be cheating. Perhaps the rules should be cleared up.

Don't the rules say something like the kit should be assembled as per the manual and all parts and hop ups should be used as originally intended? That means you only use the parts that come in the kit box or hop ups intended for that specific chassis.

You can drill out the motor mount holes a little bigger and this will allow you to fit either a 21t or possibly a 22t pinion into the M03.

I did this for my FWDragger Mini. And only my FWDragger Mini

Tony,
After reading about the coursair and F150 ute bodies on rcmini I would like to ask where I can get them and how much are they?
(When you send the bloke around to hurt me tell him to bring one of each body and a large white "T" shirt).
Terry
PS...I tried to order a shirt but the link was down.

Don't actually know Ash, we haven't physically seen one of the hats yet. But I know someone who has ordered one so we'll find out soon enough...
