Hi all I'm new to 1/10 TC and I'm very interested in Mi1v2. I have a 1/8 buggy used mainly for bashing and sometimes I run it on local onroad track. (used to have offroad track access but now none). So I guess it's time to try out 1/10 TC.

I plan to use this car on asphalt track (unprepared most of the time) and on asphalt parking lot for bashing. For power system I'm looking at Hobbyking 1/10 ESC+motor pack which costs minimum and has good reputation.

My question is, can this car perform well for my parking lot bashing and occasional asphalt track racing? I don't have experience with on-road cars, nor belt driven ones with exposed drive chain so I guess it should be very different from my bashing-oriented 1/8 buggy. Thanks.

Absolutely, this is a great car for a beginning touring car racer and is also great for bashing. It is built like a tank and so is much more durable for that reason. I will not tell you that with this car you would be as fast as the more experienced drivers running a more modern designed car but just starting out it will be a perfect car for you.

I have the Mi 1 like the other guy said itís a great car to start out with. I run my Mi 1 in VTA class 25.5 motor just stock ESC does a good job on a large asphalt track.

Thanks for those answers. Looks like a great choice to me

My next question is, for bashing purpose the car should run as quickly as possible and it doesn't really matter if it corners well. I won't join any local track racing for now, just use the on-road track for bashing or occasional run. If this is what I'm going to use this car for, do I still need the front spool and double joint CV? I plan to use Hobbyking Trackstar 21.5T motor, what gear ratio (pinion/spur teeth) range should I be looking at? Just occasional use on track for fun, not for club racing.

Thanks all!

I wouldn't worry about those upgrades until you're ready to start racing. Just have fun with it, it's a great car.


I think somewhere in the 4.0-3.8 range would work just fine for gearing. Start low and go bigger based on heat and the size of track you're using.

Default Shock Size

Do 55 or 60mm shocks come stock on the Mi1-V2?

I don't see it mentioned anywhere in the details or manual. Thanks!
