Default Mini Copper or ...?

Hi.
i saw the mini copper in israel and realy liked it.
the problem its frint wheel drive (WTF FRONT WHEEL DRIVE for what is good?)
so the problem is this:
my friends about 10 guys have mini copper and 2 of them got the Swift.
i will drive with them and sometimes i will run it on asphalt near my house.
so its worth to get the mini copper?
or i can get the RC18R and have more fun with her?

hope you'll understand.
Thank you
Bar.

if 10 of your friends drive them, then grab one for sure.

Minis (well any M03 chassis) are great fun, cheap as chips, got a huge aftermarket/hop up market and pretty well unbreakable. Tamiya have been using the same chassis setup for nearly 10 years, so parts availability is pretty easy.

Hands down get the Tamiya mini cooper I like the swift. They are durable with endless hop up options like speed tuned gear sets alumminum arms different bodies the list goes on and on. And they are tuff as a hookers grip on money after the deal is done. Theres is alot of support on this website in different forums for mini coopers.

You won't be dissapointed

and front wheel drive is a plus. you get similar handling to 4wd but without the complication of 2 more diffs.
