3Racing is also supposed to have both versions. So i kinda expected this.

I know more then a few here that donít use Facebook. I tried not to but itís becoming the best source for info. Itís brand direct to us. I keep my Facebook RC related only.

Does Xpress sell body mounts that fit the Tamiya Rover Mini Cooper bodies like how BSR M-Rage? Thanks.

My TopRacing machines..
It has the correct width.

Body post locations won't match and Xpress doesn't sell a kit to line them up.

As with pretty much all 4WD minis, the front bumper won't work with the Cooper body.

Thanks!! I will get a set.

Thanks, gigaplex!
PS: I am okay to fabricate my own body mounts as I did for my Sabre.

Yeah, if I already had the sport version I would just swap out the decks and towers and call it a day!

Default Front bar issue.

Anybody had issues with the front sway bar? Mine is fouling the outdrives. I think I need to lengthen the drop links to raise it up a little. It also seems to be acting too much like a torsion spring and not really like a sway bar at all. With no shocks fitted raising one front arm has no effect on the other arm at all via the sway bar and I did make sure the mount clamp screws were loose (before anyone asks).

You will probably need to take the tweak out of the swaybar by adjusting the links and set screws....There are many youtube videos out there that will show how to in great detail....

Yes, I had problems. The links connecting to the lower arms need to be lengthened to clear the outdrives. Also, once you do that, you need to move the collar towards the front of the car otherwise the angle of the bar vs the angle of the link is too steep, creating a spring effect. I think I also reamed out some of the hole in the ball cup to allow a greater angle before the bar hits the ball cup. And before you start all that, make sure your bars aren't tweaked. One of mine was tweaked badly, I had to straighten it out.

I would run the car without the bar first to see if you even need it.

Thanks for that, glad itís not just me. Iíll adjust it tomorrow. My latest issue is that Tamiya Mini Cooper minilight rims foul the hubs on all 4 corners. Not sure if the kit hexes are too thin - Iíll try some 6mm ones tomorrow too.

Is the XP-10362 tweak free battery mount and XP-10287 strap what I need? Or is it a bit pointless and no better than cell tape?
