they are all the size of a M- chassis, look bigger cos they have smaller wheels .
they are usully using M03 or MiniRS4 suspension parts that they mix with the drivetrain of a 1/10tourer and a home made chassis plate, have to find a smaller belt or to shorten the shaft .

Those Mini's do look like 1/10. But I do believe they are 1/12. I am totally impressed with how they were able to put 6 cells and a shaft drive!

Default yeah...thats the intresting bit

Yeah, thats the intresting part. That and the fact that most of the 1/10 mr4TC parts are interchangable with the 1/12 touring car implys that the car has a cut down chassis and smaller bulkheads, but the rest of the equiptment is 1/10.

What I am planning on doing is I have an extra 1/10 MR4TC Worlds car...not worth it to sell it, so it's gonna be my donor car for parts.

All I need are measurements or good solid pics of the bottom chassis...anyone able to send or post some pics?

This and my clod project are gonna keep me busy while my fiancee is pregnant, since I can't hang out anymore =)

We're running our first official 19T Mini class tomorrow nite, hopefully we'll be able to get a few pics for ya'll to see
The problem is you would still need arms that would fit a droop screw, otherwise you still wont have what you want.

We have them for $204.99 at my shop, but i think that will change (drop) with the next batch we get.. Not quite Speedtech's price but.. ($180-something)

We only ended up with 4 racing tonite, a few guys didnt have the time to finish them up so.. We should have a grip more next week with all the interest that was shown in them tonite.. Hopefully i'll get a chance to post some pics tomorrow at work..

The only issue so far was droop and ride height.. 2 of us were traction rolling a LOT, but that can be adjusted with correct droop settings.. These cars are really fun, i'm pretty sure we'll get a few more for next wednesday..

Default ok, mini dimensions

Ok, I am goin got mockup and create a mini chassis using alunimum...

I have some drafts ready, but If anyone could help would be great.

I need the measuerments of the main chassis in mm.

I need a measurement of the width of the chassis at it's widest point and a measurement of the chassis, from the back of the rear bulkhead to the end of the carbonfiber, where it touches the front bulkhead.


Thanks in advance!
