well, most of the HPI bodies have a longer wheelbase, plus they arent wide enuff. the Yoke car is nearly as wide as a 1/10 car. i have an HPI Mini body, plus a couple Tamiya mini bodies that are the right wheelbase, just not big enuff wheel openings, plus too narrow... love that R34 body on Speedtechrc tho!!!!

Hi Guys,

The new Mini bodies are already available, and the locals are going crazy over them You really have to see one in person to see all the details on the body and how cool it looks on the mini sedan. Click here for more details We test fit the body on a Yokomo mini and it was a perfect fit. Plenty of room for suspension travel and the full size touring car wheels/tires.

Also, we started a pre-order for the up coming x-ray mini sedan should be an excellent kit!

Hi Guys,

I just finished building one of the Yokomo MR-4TCMD mini sedan, I gotta say, these little sedans are some of the coolest thing in R/C. They handel extremely well, mainly due to it's small size in relation to the full size touring car tires. And because they are smaller, guys that run the cars has been telling me that it is so much easier and more fun to race and battle on the track with these things.

I done up one of the McLaren GTR Mini bodies for it, I'll post some pics when I get a chance

I've been eyeballing the Mclaren body. I might have to get one for my Xray mini. Now before you all start asking me questions about it, I don't have it yet.

Neil,

You don't understand, words can't describe how cool these little thing look A couple of guys went out to SoCal last Sat. night and were testing them out there, and they worked great on the track.

I'll get some post up for you as soon as I can...you're gonna drool!

I think 1/12 would rule. All tracks would seem bigger. Batteries are cheaper. Less motor wear.

How do you think a Novak BL would fit into the Yok mini?
