EWW!! im all for new mini bodies but..... EWWW lol Maybe im old fashioned but the orignal fiat looks amazing, im not a fan of the new one tho

Cant wait to see how much the new HPI bodies will be. I think they will be the new standard. The datsun looks amazing, and im so happy to hear they are going for realism first! Yeah i know, the chrome bumpers etc will be killed in the first crash, but I love the realism!!!

But if they're as good as they used to be we can't wait.
Better than the Team Powers pre-mounts? That would definitely be amazing.

And HPI are saying that they're doing a full range of bodyshells as well. Although the wider ones could be a problem. This could be interesting. With the Switch FWD and now this car, seems there is a big HPI M chassis push.
I just spoke to my friends at HPI and they said that the car in your post IS the new "mini" and that all the mini bodies will fit... the front shocks have two different mounting positions (vertical and laydown) and there will be at least SIX different body post setups for different bodies... the laydown front shocks will work great for the ABC bodies....

Close, but no cigar.. Its 1 of the 2 new Minis.

One being this one (The True Ten Cup Racer) , the other being the new FWD car (Called Switch) People (and even HPI people too) seem to be getting them confused all over the place!

Well, if people were undecided about Tamiya's version of the Fiat 500, I think we'll all be united about this one from Team Atlas which has just been released mounted on their 4WD Beat chassis



Did someone leave it out in the sun? I think it's melted!

Or this weirdo Japan only car that I haven't been able to identify. Atlas call it the To-Pa



Looks fairly tough I suppose but I won't be rushing out to get one myself.

And finally this offering called the SK-LA.



I'm not sure what to say about this one but obviously the designers lost their french curve templates behind the sofa....

Can I get those:

the adjustable ones from the M03R ( camber links)
whitout buying the blue bling-bling?

Or if I have to make a camber link that is adjustable with sway bar pieces,
will I be TCS legal?

Thanks guys

They are easy to make and are TCS legal. At least my car passed tech at the Nationals.

Use two 5mm short adjuster #50797 and a 3x12 set screw. Thread the set screw into one coupler and then thread the other one on the exposed threads. I used 5mm ball nuts and a 3x12 mm set screw to mount them to the rear upright. Use a 3mm button head machine screw, 4x6mm flanged tube #50593 for the inner mounting.

The main advantage to doing this is that you can even out the camber on each side. Most of the Minis I've seen have more camber on the rt than on the left. The other big advantage is if you are running low ride ht at the rear, you can decrease the amount of camber so that you don't get the dreaded death groove with Tamiya 60d tires.
