Nice! I'll probably get this car. Lots of the 1/10th car parts can be used on the 1/12 tourer.

Here's mine, raced it Sunday. They let me have fun with the pan cars. Out of eight cars, mine came in 6th. The last two cars broke!

The tires looks like foam. Where do you race?

Yes, the tires are foams. Handles great too. I just couldn't keep up with the speed of the 1:12 pan cars. The slicks that came with the kit are still in the box.

I'm in Colorado. Race at HobbyTown Lakewood.

They have a better version of everything in japan... We get 240SX, they get Silvia. We get Civic Si, they get Civic Type R. We get Mustang, they get SKYLINE

Anyway, you think there is any chance of starting a 4 cell modified mini class at SoCal?

I don't see why not. We tried it some time ago with the 1/18 and 1/24 scale cars first came out. But I think they were just too small and too slow. The 1/12 Mini has a huge potential to get a real class going. Just not a whole lot of people getting into it yet. When I get mine, I'll start running it and the word will get around.

Let me know when you get it, I'll build one up as well. We could propably run 8 min heats to make it a little more difficult to chose motor and gearing.

The manager at the Hobbytown said to me that if there are at least 4 more of these mini tourer, he'll make it a 1:12 mod TC class.

A lot of the guys at the race like the little car very much.
They were surprised how well it handled without any hop ups.
I had a 19T Reedy in it at the time and I am considering a Novak
brushless.

RCInfinity-Just get it!
