Been trying to get my hands on a Sabre Mini 4WD for awhile now. Got in touch with Michael at Top Racing USA out in San Fran and he said that Top Racing USA is in the process of purchasing Top Racing, and also in the process of streamlining the kits on offer [he also said that the website will be re-done and be user friendly - but will just take some time].

Please, please, please contact them and voice your interest in the Mini's as they (TOP Racing USA) are going to focus on 3, maybe 4 kits to offer instead of the 11/12 that are currently produced... I have a bad feeling that the Mini's may be axed as he told me that they have only sold 2-3 Mini's per year the last couple of years.

Aracefan,

As much as I love my Top Sabre Mini 4, I don't think we can persuade them to keep it.

There is no class for it and it's an expensive car for bashers.

I will keep mine regardless because it truly is a beauty.

Completely agree.

Even if someone offered me a grand, I would not sell it. It is a keeper and collector's item for sure especially for those that love carbon fiber chassis. Same goes for the SabreFD Mini. These are are just in a different league.

The car dominated a NorCal Hobbies but the class died. Now they offer 2wd mini smh. And yes Michael is great. I now use my mini as a street basher lol when bored, making sure any surface driven on is smooth

I put a chassis protector on mine so the chassis doesn't get damaged

Has anyone heard from Michael and TOP? I've been trying to get a hold of them via email and phone and have not had any luck.
