If you can find them, Tamiya made some mini versions of their classic 2wds.

I drove a Chunk at the Worlds... Sorry UK, MicroX 5.

Got to say that even with a bent chassis (my fault crashed it during installation laps ) the car is Awesome, amazingly planted and very easy to drive

only think you need other than a B4 is a dremel or similar!


Me and the chunk - The chassis bent when I hit the foot of theguy who is stood behind me - at full speed.

Yes, TT-Gear GB-01 series. I have two Fox-Mini buggies. However, I retired them from service in favor of the Mini-8ight. I enjoyed them, but the biggest issue was the ball diff would not last long running brushless power. Make for nice shelf queens though...I have them prominently displayed!

Have you thought about the other Losi Minis? Like the 1/18 desert buggy or the 1/16 SCT?

my basement is 29x32 plus another room that is 22x18 it's a weird shape..

But I found a Exotek MXB pro buggy conversion for a mini t that I think that's a much easier conversion then the chunk
