Default just got a new tamiya mini cooper fwd. tips? tips on customization?

so we're racing FWD mini coopers at my local track, dirtrunners and I was wondering if anyone has some tips on building etc. Were running completely spec with the option to run bearings. Really excited to run 'em.


For one, where can I find the 4 spoke wheels that they show on the side of the box? What wheels will fit the stock tires?


Also what bodies fit? with the new hpi cup racer bodies work? or how about one of the old hpi mini bodies? I know they make a fiat 500 body too and I would not mind making an abarth clone like they did on top gear.


Anyhow yeah, really looking for cool wheels over anything else.

ABC HOBBY makes alot of different wheels for the mini, and will also fit the stock tires. Check out their website, www.abchobbyusa.com
As for HPI Cup Racer bodies, I'll be building an AE86 LEVIN body for a friend, and see if it will fit the M-05, with medium wheelbase.
