I still race mine!!
It totally spanks all the other mini racers that come to our track.
Once I got it all shimed up and put on a 1/12 mini TC body, I love the way it drives.

I'll try to post a few pics tomorrow.

It's funny how so many people come up to me and ask what kind of car is that?

I used to have one with the Miata body... It was too easy to drive... Sold it on eBay years ago.. I don't miss it. HPI Pro's are nice cars for good price.

I have one with a few mods (full carbon chassis, aluminium suspension, bulkheads and hub/hub carriers) and I raced it with some success, but the problem I found with it is I just could not find a decent tire. I have used the Tamiya tires 60D compound with foam inserts racing on carpet. What other ideas do you have?
