There is another mini cooper thread. I'd suggest posting there. Ther is a mini web site that is very good and you'll be able to find a link on that thread that'll take yo there. It's difficult to make good suggestions unless you have more information, such as $$$$ available to spend, what you'll do with it, race or street bash with friends, etc.

However, with that being said, I don't think I'd start with that particular combo. Too much of that stuff will be discarded if you stay with it for awhile. Read the stuff on Tony Grays mini website and you'll do okay all on your own. Good luck and welcome to Mini world

That charger and battery are garbage. You also dont need another servo, as that radio system your selected says it comes with a servo. Look at the Onyx 210 or 220 charger and a 3000mah NIMH battery pack.

Here's a link to the mini cooper thread:


As of now, there are 7,163 posts so it'll take you a couple of weeks to get caught up.

On the bright side, every pearl of wisdom required to become a mini expert is in there somewhere.

The mini crew is generally nice so if you just search the thread for a while then ask some questions you'll get help.

That combo would be great if it were 1985. You'll definitely want a nimh battery (3000 mah stick packs are fine at first) and a basic peak charger.

They say to get your mini competitive for racing, you just need to get a Suzuki swift mini kit, and the damper set, and bearings for the transmission.
