I believe it is 210mm and I was told last month from HPI that the switch bodies will be ready later this summer.

Excellent, thanks. I was hoping it was 210mm as I want to keep my M05 that length.

The ABC body is 210mm. I have one cut and mounted, but not painted. Still trying to deside if I want to go with the blue instead of the red.
The blue paint scheme was used on the "guest driver" car.

Would the reverse apply for a M04? I have similar issues with my M04 and would like to try this.

I'm guessing I should use the super glue on the rears for a M04????

Nope, still glue only the fronts...

Show your Mini or Mini's. Mine are as follows I have a Suzuki Super 1600 on a M03M chassis, as much aluminum upgrades as possible, aluminum motor heat sink, next I have an Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA on a M04 chassis also too many upgrades, this one has a brushless system with a 2230KV motor. The VW is an 81 GTI on a M03R chassis this one is a shelf queen, nothing spectacular about the paint job but I used to have a real 81 GTI that was the same color so that's why I painted it white (don't have the real GTI anymore ). Last is the Mini Cooper on a M03 chassis lightly tuned tamiya motor, moped ESC, futaba receiver, aluminum motor heat sink. They all have full ball bearing upgrades. And they are all fun to drive.

The Tamiya slicks are TCS legal, the 60D Type A's do wear pretty quickly though. Tamiya has released a 60D Type B slick for the mini but I haven't run these yet so unfortunately don't know if they wear any better than the A's.

The new Type Bs wear like iron and have the same if not a little more grip than the As. Their grip goes way up the firmer the insert.
