Rims don't have a single crack or bend after countless crashes
the 53223 is for the 50D tire.

Anyone know where I can get a few sets of the 53223?? I really need to get some in the next 2 weeks. I have a big race I'm attending, and want them as an option.

and on a side note for you WI guys... has there been mention if the Swift body will be OK for the Novak race, or are we gonna stick with Coopers?

Wes
We are using black Tamiya sedan shaped inserts, cut down in length to match the length of the old Mini black shaped inserts, in S grips up front, m grips in rear. For Novak, traction may be up so high that we will use kit vinyls up front, m grips to rear. With all the foam laid down in the Novak race, pushing is usually the least of our problems!

I have not talked to Scotty, but I would guess that any M03, M03M or M03L will be allowed, Swift bodies included. I will check and confirm. (In the past, he defers to me on Mini rules, so I imagine it will remain that way this year, and we're running Swifts now, so.....)

got a new tamiya sport tuned motor for my m03m. Was wondering if there are any tips for this motor.? i'll be using a standard tamiya 20T pinion. There's another thread on silver can tips. Should i just follow the advice there? What are your guys opinions on running the motor in water?

thanks

thanks,

I'm racing the same winter series and I'm not only interested in the best tyres, but setup tips for use on carpet are also very welcome!

My Suzuki body is now finished (thanks Edwin...). Let the series begin!

Thanks.

All Minis are 1/10th scale, that's just the way they are. The problem is that some Manufacturers did cars the same size as the Tamiya Minis, but then called them 12th scale.

Essentially they are all pretty much the same size though. But the Yokomo and X-Ray 4WD Minis are often called '12th scale Touring Cars' We prefer to think of them as just 4WD 1/10th scale Minis

Our rally cars are FWD M03 Tamiyas.

The only time we run the 4WD cars is at indoor oval racing.

Love all the cars on the site, so many I've never seen before. That Tech Mini looks just frickin awesome and I like the Active one too.

You guys have got so many cool minis - I'm in love!
