I probably should get my act together and put a quick review together for RC-Mini - would save me typing everytime someone suggests they are thinking of getting one.

I sold the car though, and can't find the pics i took when building it - so bit hard to put the review together

That would be a good idea but someone down the line will end up asking again just like everything else

Running foams can get you wheel/tire size smaller than an M03 tire

The Atlas beat is the belt drive version of the ABC car. Same pivotball suspension.

Yep that's truee. When I'm messing around I put my trusty foam tires on and there way smaller then the mini tires. But the foam rims are bigger then the pana sports

Keep your suspension the same, Tamiya 'S' grips up front, 'M' grips in the rear. That's all you need.
