Thatís the older version. Thereís a Evo version that they have been running on that Facebook group, RcMini. Thereís a couple of the older models on eBay.

Iíve gotta go back through the Facebook info. I got crossed up with them testing this and the other 4wheel drive mini. Only when Tony mentioned that they were retiring the older model did I realize it was a FWD.

They have no info about then the new 3Racing 4wheel Mini will be available.

I think its the same car and they just mean it legal in a particular racing series, but I could be wrong. The last photo is a Tamiya m03

I still don't think there is a new model I don't know seems way to early to release a new. I haven't seen any word about it on any other rc news site. Rcmini sometimes makes custom parts for themselves so you may get confused sometimes. For example, my car that used to be one of their test cars. It has one of carbon fiber top and bottom plates. The original was g10 based and the company never offer carbon fiber even as a hop up part. Here was the original article it was in Link and yes I did buy it because it had yr-f2 in it.

Ok. I’ll post over there to be sure. I really shouldn’t be buying another car at this moment. But a mini FWD peaked the curiosity meter. There’s a few with interest in a mini class this winter. Since it’s looking like I will be able to get to the indoor track this winter( I mean not to sound morbid, My dads Parkinson’s battle is heading towards only conclusion). They seem more interested in the Tamiya, I suggested the Express. Thought maybe I’d try a FWD

i just started building it this week. When the idea was posted that few had interest in a mini class at Windy City, I suggested the Express., mentioned the MRage. They seemed more interested in the Tamiya, suggested that the Express would need its own group. I know that another parking lot group ran the Tamiya M class over summer. Some wonít go back to the indoor track anymore.
Iím not against the Tamiya. Just expensive compared to the Express or 3Racing FWD.

Iím always looking for next vehicle, FWD mini sounds interesting

Nope. Cramer/trail/scaler thing just doesnít get my interest. They look great in pictures. But like drift, they suffer from what I see as the ďmodel train effectĒ. They look great from low angle video. But looking down like Godzilla, they donít have same feel.

If if I did buy a trail truck, Iíd have bought the Carisma coyote, or one itís versions. They just announced a 1/24 version. But need to see video before I actually consider it. My coworker bought the 1/24 ECX last. Was fun for about 15 minutes. Then just blah.

Ah I see, I mention it as maybe something for your kids, I don't know why but kids just seem to gravitate to crawlers, I like to bring them to the beach a lot mainly my scx10 and it always attracts a bunch of kids.
