Yeah it uses all top plastics. They use the same factory and took over the production. But yes, everything else Top is gone forever. Just wasn't profitable I guess.

No, all their mini kits use either their own full size car parts or in the case of the conversion kits...other cars full size parts. No use of anything Top except the suspension pieces (plastics, CVD's etc). I think they are actually making their own CVD's now as well.

Mine has an Alpine A110 body on it. Shame they donít exist anymore.

Good news is that the consumable parts are available from RaceOpt..

Hi eR1c! Yeah, I've taken another hiatus from RC'ing due to buying a new-to-me house last year. Been a busy year moving in, modifying the house, and hope to finish the RC track later this winter.

Was hoping to build a new house from scratch, but got hit with zoning restrictions and could not quite make the house the way we wanted on paper so found a freshly renovated house with a big garage.

The Xpress Mini cars are popular at tracks on east coast. He in LV we canít even get Mini going again let alone an AWD Mini.

I tried to get people at club interested in Mini and my rival pushed GT12 Pan cars that run similar bodies. He had had success recently.. me not so much as even with this darn pandemic, work hinders me from being at the track on Saturdays
