Default Mini chassis body to race

Dear anyone:

Could somebody tell me, since the rules is restricted to using TC and deformed bodies then not allowed wings above on the roof in Mini 2wd class. Which realistic body could be chosen to run?

Best regards

HPI Miata bodies were always nice. Too bad they are no longer made now. You can probably still find a few sitting around on shelves of stores though.

Unfortunately, HPI Miata is no longer exists.
Anyway, Colt, Blitz, ABC, HPI or even Ride, i think those brands products i still can find.
Thanks for your suggest!

After research, since i run on tight carpet track, so my choices are these:

Ride Subaru Sti
Colt Porsche 911 rs
ABC Mr2
Blitz Audi RS1

Are they good, or have got better choices?

Best regards

Abc and colt are short wheelbase. Did you want to run short wheelbase, or medium?

I don't know if short of medium take advantage in tight track.
I saw the race of this year most people ran with ABC body.

I have my mini sorted out better now and I'm going long wheelbase (239 mm). Partially cuz my Austin Mini body was 210mm and cuz it swapped ends easily at speed on the local tight carpet track. And cuz that Alfa MiTo body is gorgeous (and recommended by m05 bloggers).

Is the track tight enough for you to drop to an 18T pinion? If so, a specific body won't help much.

What's your current setup?

I don't know, because i didn't have got car on my hand yet.
But i could tell you, the race rules:

5.8fdr
max 2400 lipo
21.5t blinky.

Of course is possible it will be changed in next year.

I talked with my friend, he said me colt 911rs looks good, with wings and to be narrow:

5.8 fdr - so no, you cannot use an 18T. It must be the 20T.

If this is your first time racing, buy the cheapest body you can find.

Colt bodies aren't cheap enough?
