Although the width and length on this are the same as on the Yokomo, the application is a little different.

This is a 6-cell car running on mini-sized wheels, the Yokomo was 4-cells and ran on standard touring wheels.

There are actually already a couple of other 4wd 6-cell minis on the market right now, the Xpress mini has just been released (available in the UK already), and I think in Japan you can find an ABC mini and maybe a couple of others too!

They could make for a great fun indoor class, 19T will be plenty fast enough in the compact chassis, and you can use the Tamiya shells and other really scale ones for a great look too. Compared to micros they are still sturdy, take standard electronics and have better ground clearance.

Active Hobby Products Japan is proud to bring you these scoop images of the A210SS Chassis.

Our original concept when developing the A210SS kit was that it featured aspects that make this car a genuine driving pleasure for the RC enthusiast.
We designed the chassis to be small and light, and also focussed on creating the lowest center of gravity seen in an RC car. This overall strategy equips the A210SS with performance characteristics and handling seldom seen in cars of this scale.

Chassis Features:
  • Ultra-low center of gravity
  • Fully adjustable suspension with extended suspension arms.
  • Ability to change the roll center
  • Dual belt AWD system including eccentric adjustable tensioning
  • Aluminium motor mount and F & R bulkheads
  • F & R CVD universal drive shafts
  • F & R adjustable ball diffs
  • Adjustable Ackerman steering system
  • Choice of 2 front shock towers
  • Adjusters come complete with turnbuckles and ball cups
  • Shocks include high quality low friction oil
  • Chassis accommodates both ladder and stick packs
  • Includes Sports Body
  • Includes Scale Rims and Rubber Tires 54mm size
  • Includes 540 motor
  • Includes Tamiya M03 bodies post sets
  • Includes full ball bearings

* Does not include ESC, receiver or servo

Chassis Specifications:
  • Chassis Full length: 282mm
  • Chassis Width: F/163mm R/163mm to 169mm
  • Chassis Wheel Base: 208mm to 210mm

When complete with body, the unique design of the A210SS makes full use of the 3D CAD elements and combines sports performance with a feeling a scale seldom seen by sports car fans.
In addition, the A210SS is intended for use as an unrivalled, high-performance chassis for RC racing.
We will reveal additional details concerning the chassis and bodies on November the 4th.

I think these kits referred are converted from TC, but this 1 from Active is genuine Mini.
