Hi Guys,

We just started a pre-order for the X-ray mini on our website. We also added a new page of some of the new mini bodies we'll be receiving this week.

Hopefully more performance oriented bodies will be released before long... seems to only be the Stratus.

I remember the roadrunner express mini. That car was dialed out of the box. A lot of people used that car when it was very popular here in nothern calif. I remember the top gun for using that car was Samson Fong. He lives in Hong Kong now, but not too sure if he's racing anymore.

Randy, have these been showing up at Socal? If they start getting popular, I may decide to get one for my trips up there. I really would like one but the guys I've talked to around here don't seem too interested.

Hi Guys,

Actually, Masami Hirosaka prefers the McLaren F1 mini body for his MR-4TCMD. I saw a picture of it in a Japanese magazine, just imagine the usual Masami red/green scheme on the McLaren F1 Mini...looks good!

I've seen 1 Yokomo so far, but I know Neil will be getting one of the XRay rides, and I'm pretty sure he will get the class to spread...

If you do start seeing them show up, let me know, I'd be interested.

Nevermind, I just found them on your site. They look a little cartoonish, don't you think?
