Back to square one. Can anyone confirm what parts are interchangeble between the full size and the mini?
1. shock towers
2. shocks
3. bulk heads
4. diffs
5. drive spur
6. bumpers
7. front and rear uprights
8. c-hubs
9. servo saver (parts only... instalation is different)

everything is the same except dogbones , upper/lower arms & chassis.

i have recently fitted my yok mini with 10th scale yok arms, handling is so much better, and i use a 1/10 mini cooper bodyshell, it's basically a shorter length 1/10 scale car powered by 4 cells,

try it without the belt, rwd is so much fun

A friend of mine at my track just got his, and with a stock motor, I don't mean to critisize them or anything, but theyre slow. But if you built up a 6 cell pack just like some nitro car reciever packs, and put a couple slots in the chassis to tape the pack in, that thing would be a rocket ! Not sure if enough people at my track will get them for it to become a class though.

when we hit our personal indoor track we use stock motors and it takes a looooong time before the batts drop.
but when we hit the 1/10 tracks we use very hot motors like 9x2, 8x2. and it kicks the @ss of 19 turn motors. we ran it up against 1/10 cars with mod motors and for the first 2 mins it has no problem keeping up. after that the car is still awesome but you will notice that the topend speed is less. but it still is hella fast. on a good charge you could last about 6-7 minutes before it suddenly crawls.

i am running yoko 8x2 mod motor on mine !! with 4cell GP3000, it gives a bit more than 6 min run time. however, i also noticed that the servo action is not as smooth in the last 3 mins before the batt dump .... i am now using a 6v FET servo (KO 2004FET), i might switch to a normal 6v servo (Futaba 3003) to see if this will improve.

ps : i already install a 1000uF cap on the rx bec.

Default Sick of the Stratus?

I dont know if any of you guys have seen these, but this is one of the Northcraft bodyshells for the Tamiya Mini. As it happens, it also fits the MR4TC-Mini even better!
And how cute does a baby cartoon Subaru WRX look?
