It does, but if I make a part intended for that chassis, that is it's original intention
Like I said, I am not going to do it, I just thought it would be funny to have a bigger 20tooth pinion and still be within the rules.

Is your mini in bad need of a shave and/or haircut like this one?

Chances are you were at the Tamiya Asia Cup Finals in Malaysia like we were then!

My MINI Cooper is very fun to drive but the problem is the front tires wear out so fast the maintenance cost is astronomical. But it is a blast to drive.

hi edhchoe,

try s-grip tires, they last a very long time (for me, over 100 runs).

They are the same as the Yeah pack but at least Harris was smart enough to get them approved. Congrats Tony

Drifting .. tempted to try? But you said once before "I would be scared to buy a lipo from some one like yeah racing as they can some times cheap out on quality "

Yes i did say that but seen as they have tonys sticker on i am happy, oh and the fact that it is now roar approved


I payed almost double that on my orion 3200...not fair


and the reason i dont like yeah racing is because i bought there c hubs for the mini and the were bendable by hand

The Yeah Racing/Harris/RCM/whoever pack is a good quality Lipo for the price. And an idfeal shape for the Mini

Thanks Greg

There is also a good arguement there about being the "same" ,especially the cases, but want go there

Drifting101:
Sometimes items that appear cheap can actually be great value for the money asked

They are both very good performers. We have a few guys here that run Genetics and a guy running an Active Hobby 4wd and an Xpress Mini. They have to run the same FDR as the M03 and this keeps the cars pretty close in performance with the M03 usually coming out on top!

But seeing as this is the "Tamiya Mini Cooper" thread you will probably only hear how those are not true Mini's

Only because it's true. 4wd + belt drive + mini = wannabe touring car.

And unless you are Tamiya, any part you make is illegal, whether you intend it for that chassis or not.
