What else is news?
Dont think the 07 is past it yet. The 08 is just a RWD 07 generally anyway.

I didn't say it was past. The M-08 is completely unlike the M-07. It's closer to the M06 than it is the TA-07, like the M07 is. We'll see how it works out. :-) The M-07 is likely to continue as the hot ticket for a long time yet. FWD has consistancy that RWD doesn't.

true, yet the M08 may disprove that. ...we'll know soon enough.
The RWD m-chassis's have always given hope as FWD killers, -as they lay down serious power ...taming that power is the key!

I run the same holes as 20.. however I had to modify my gear cover to clear the 23. I initially tried with 24 but there was no more meat left to take off of gear cover.

I have a really hard time calling accessory package cars "new cars". :-) My M07 is mostly M07r.

That’s pretty hot, but I’ve still got a few Colt New Beetles to unwrap. ��

My most recent acquisition. Overnighted parts from Japan! 😂

This is my HPI chassis M01

Love M-01s. So simple.

Interesting note for today. It’s the first time I’ve taken my M-07 off the shelf since November 2017. Setting it up with a 3300kv motor and 24t pinion. Should be a handful. If I get bored, I’ll chuck in something sillier.

...been running my M07 pretty regularly. Now that I have it dialed in it runs great and is really fun to race.

What coopers?... They are long gone lol. The M07 (and now M08) wave has taken over the Mini racers and it seems anyone with something older is just taking it out every now and then for practice. I have my fully decked out M05 V II R just sitting pretty on the shelf
