Default Xpress mini pro vs pro

To the few that know about xpress cars, whats the difference between the xpress mini pro and pro mike swauger edition? I've found the mini pro on Rcmart.com but I haven't found the pro MS anywhere. Also, the mini is 1/10 scale.

The mini pro is like the HPI mini, more of a 1/12 touring car. The Xpress MS edition is the full size (1/10) touring car.

So its a 1/10 scale with a smaller chassis? ON rcmart it's listed under the 1/10 scale section. So does it use 190 mm bodies like touring cars do?

No the Xpress Mini uses the smaller bodies Like Tamiya mini, Xray T1M, and Yokomo mini TC.

BTW- I have an Xpress Mini GTO version that has the mods donw to the front suspension and some extra arms, belts and misc parts. If you are interested email me or PM me. I have it setup for Tamiya shocks and it worked very well- sooo quiet and smooth, but I used the shocks on another car so it will need a set of Tamiya shocks. It still has the Tamiya style balls mounted for the shocks.

alright, thanks. Can the mini use bodies that are used for non touring car design 1/12 scale cars like this one link . Does it use standard size electronics?(540 motor, servo, esc)

Do you think I woluld be able to compete in the tenth scale class if there's no 1/12 class?

either that or butwinkle do you have pay pal would you be willing to sell a front or rear shock tower?
im 90% sure they are the same could you just take a picture next to a ruler
i live in aussie but will paypal you what you think is a fair cost (10usd?) + postage (should fit in a standard envelope)
depending on what version of the 1:10 you have
could you take a picture of all the ones you would be willing to let go next to a ruler and email me: boy_with_pants @hotmail.com

thankyou
