I think a TOP 1/12 would be more beneficial.

Anyone who ran the FWD class when TCS used to run it will love this!

You already have the best 12th scaler (and a beautifull speed 8 body), how would a TOP 12th scale be beneficial to you?

I would imagine beings that TOP is obviously from Japan.. Mini racing would be pretty important to a company based there? That would be why.

I'm asking about the FWD. That hasn't been popular since like '96

The mere existence of this car has baffled me all day. Then it hit me ....a it's a good beginners class car where more power isn't generally usable. Modern adjustable chassis to learn the ropes with, easy to drive (ever driven a Mini?), and all the electronics swap right over to 4WD TCs when the newbie moves up. Then I woke up from my afternoon unemployment nap and realized I was dreaming again because all beginners go right for the fastest missile they saw at the track last weekend.

Arn't most Mini's FWD? Atleast on a major scale? Maybe I'm wrong.. All i've seen is Tamiya minis though..

Looks like a fun car... its a shame there are no other FWD cars left on the market. But a good platform for a pro-spec Mini.
