And the Jedis felt a huge disturbance in the force last night...with much swearing and abuse and unhappiness from Down Under...

The rc-mini boys were assembling their M06 Pros and all was not as it should be...



While the build may not have been fun, will the cars performance make up for it? Soon, the full test on rc-mini.net. Stay Tuned

I think it should be like a gameshow, have a random prize in every box. I want one with a speedboat or a holiday to Haiwaii in my box.

Wished Tamiya included a motor, esc or body as the bonus part.

Thanks Tony,

Wouldnt want it any other way really, curiosity more than anything made me ask why, but as they say "If it aint broken don't fix it!!"

cheers

No, it's the TOP Sabre Mini.

It's just a mini-sized version of their Sabre FWD Touring Car which has been out for a few months now.

If anyone is looking, I have just listed my red M-05 chassis kit for sale. I'm selling only the plastic chassis parts (not the whole car) and I'm looking for $30 plus actual shipping.

Default Foam Inserts

Is using rubber cement the correct method for glueing the foam inserts together on the stock mini tires?

x2. Just jam them all in there. It seems like they're too big at first but they're not.
