Altough it has probably been posted in here before, Check out this cool web site on minis; http://www.rc-mini.net/joomla/
Just getting out there with a mini is a good start to getting others interested and might bring more out to race.

JustMe2,

Here is a link to a e-bay shop that I use that has the Chevron Mini Monster body. I purchased two from here previously and the shop is highly recommended.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Chevron-Model...item518f4dd44a

Regards,

Calvin.

Thanks to all for the links and good advice.

Calvin,
Reading through the many pages it seems you say a car that understeers, has better rear grip, is the right set up? I ask because I notice people useing treaded tires(HPI X pattern) in the front and slicks in the rear. Both of our new to us cars will need tires soon so I am open to suggestions. Also, does wheelbase make a difference, one better then another? We will be racing on a new carpet track.

Thanks.

Has anyone tried any of the HPI Cup Racer bodies on their Mini-Coopers yet. I doubt that they would work on the M03 chassis, but I bet they would work on the M05 chassis.

Anyone have a good solution for preventing the shoulder screws from backing out of the front upper arms?

Sure: machine screws and shock sleeves (the short cylinder that fits into the bottom of older plastic Tamita shocks...or the kingpin sleeves from MO3R's...or just a short piece of brass tubing). The sleeve rotates in the hole instead of the shoulder, so the screw stays screwed into the link. Have to use new upper links because the self tapping feature of the shoulder screw makes the hole too large for good contact by the much shallower machine screw.

BTW, my butt smells like rabbit. Is there a connection?

Superglue! No, J/K. How about some blue locktite?

Please don't!

Keeping the screws from backing out is easy...just slow down in the corners a little and let yellow cars pass you...

here's a silly question, but I saw this done over the weekend and was wondering...

has anyone tried running a Tekin B1 (the 18th scale speedo) in the M03/M05?? I know guys have run the B1 with 27t stockers in 12th scale, and I saw it used (and used VERY well) over the weekend with a silver can in a F104

so it made me wonder if anyone tried it in the M03/M05 with a silver can?

Website says its motor limit for 540 sized motors is 55t when using a 2S lipo. Also says it's Hotwire programable...interesting.
