Default best mini

I have about 35 different minis ranging from Tamiy Tamtech 1/24th scale and gb01 series, Tycos, Nikkos, Kawada TripMate, ABCs (2wd & 4wd), Mini-Zs (m01-m03), mini-inferno, Epochs, MERV, Mini-8ight, Losi mini-t's and micros, Dromida, ECX, Vaterras, rc18s, Carisma, silverlit, Micro-RS4 just to name a few. I still need to obtain an Xray m18 pro, Buds BRP, Robitronics Scalpel, Teton. I'm not going to include the HPI XS because it takes 1/10th electronics.

Man, I just like them all. They're small like snails but really fast. Most current and best value might be the Dromida DT4-18.

I used to hate it but now that I have a few losi mini truggies, I'm liking my mini e revo more and more everyday for bashing. The losi's are a bit better on a clay track.

I've had several HPI micro RS4's modded to different levels, Xmod, Xray M18, Mini Z, now an Atomic AMZ. My top two out of these are the Xray M18 and the Atomic AMZ. And between these two, the Atomic AMZ is my favorite.

Holy thread res batman!

Impressive collection Snail, love these minis for pure fun!
My collection started with a Mini T and went on to Trinity Spyder, RC18T, Mini Z MR02/MA010/Overland, Micro T/DT.

My most fun out of the lot would go down to my time with the Mini Z. A friend got one when I was out of the hobby and the next day so did I. It ended up being a group of about 8 of us that got them ranging from Newb to vet and we spent so much time at a track that had opened 10mins from us. At one point I had about 5 or 6 ranging from Drift, to stock to pro class that had every part changed. Best time I had in RC, ever....when the track went away however so did the Mini Z

Next up would be the more realistic Mini T, setup a small fun track at the house and a couple of us ran them to they blew up. haha, good times.

This is going to sound weird to some, but honestly my favorite RC I've ever had the pleasure to own and use is my Himoto Tyronno. It only broke when I put a 3s battery specifically to break it to upgrade, then I found out how hard it was to upgrade to brushless if you started out brushed. Still haven't fixed it yet.
My garage:
Arrma ADX-10, Dromida MT4.18, Losi Mini-T, Iron Track Tyronno, ECX Torment 4x4, Tacon Soar

I just got the Losi 8ight Mini and it's amazing. I did have to get the bigger battery because the stock one became real boring real quick. I have a 200mah 2s 7.4v and man... I can barely control it. Love love love that little thing.

I had a propulse I used for indoor off road and then converted to Late model oval.

Man that thing was a beast. Awesome bang for the buck. Was almost a direct copy of the RC18 just with better motor mount and steering linkage.

It would eat a RC18 alive.

I love my mini's. I have 7 so far. I truly enjoy my Mini T's. Their all custom built with brushless motors. Super fun! One is a MT conversion, another is a SCT conversion, and an Exotek conversion. A ECX SMASH when stock it was solid. Now converting to brushless.

My Mini 8ight and Mini 8ight Truggy are fast and nimble. Great for track days.

My LC Racing EMB-MTH is hands down the best out of the box mini period. A smile from ear to ear with this one.

I too have a mini 8ight and love it and thought that it would be the only mini that I'd ever buy but after seeing the Duratrax Vendetta and the Carisma GT24B I'm having second thoughts.
