Here are a few pics of my Nitro Mini RS4. I purchased NIB in 2000.

so any review on how the genetic handles and its speed. Any word on US distribution. I am very interested in their line. They have 3 bodies I would love to get my hands on. I am probably going to pull the trigger and buy the bluebird.

We are running a Mini class with pretty open rules at the Carlisle Cup here in the UK, sponsored by Much-More UK who are distributing both the ABC Genetic and the new Xpress mini.

My brief impressions of the ABC are that the build quality is really good and it has a fair few tuning parts available. Bodies are absolutely gorgeous! Handling wise it seems good, maybe a shade tail happy for me out of the box (but that is part of the fun), perhaps has a slight edge over the Xpress mini on the tarmac with the ABC slick tyres, but at the end of the day they look great on the track, are a lot of fun, and feel super-quick because they are small (laptimes are slower than a 1/10th car though).

The Air Vent dots on the back window kicks serious ass!

How does this car handle with the rear end much wider than the front?

Nice retro colours - really suit the shell.

Talking about retro...



Is this not the best RC shell EVER?

The quality of the Genetic looks to be top notch... I might have to break down & buy one to tinker with soon. The CRX is very tempting, because I own a restored & hot-rodded version of the same car in hatchback form -> my 85 sleeper hatch

Tough decision though, because I've owned a couple of Datsun 510s too... ! ABC definitely produces some awesome shells.
