• Tamiya Mini Racing

    I have been asked about the possibility of running a Tamiya Mini class. We now have a Mini kit for sale in each store and we will see what happens.
    Attachment 159This is the radio controlled, electric powered, 1/10 scale
    Rover Mini Cooper kit with the M-05 Chassis from Tamiya.

    extensions to build a short, medium or long wheelbase chassis

    with foam inserts
    Wheels: 8 spoke gray, 0.94" (24mm) wide, 1.5" (38mm) diameter
    Camber: Non-adjustable, camber refers to the angle of the tops of the
    tires from vertical when viewed from front or behind vehicle

    suspension when viewed from the side of the car in relation to the

    20 tooth pinion gear, shocks, ESC, motor and instruction manual

    AA Batteries: 8 for transmitter
    Battery: 6-cell stick with standard connector

    SPECS: Vehicle;

    Height: 5.3" (135mm)
    Wheelbases: 8.3" (210mm), 8.8" (225mm), 9.4" (239mm)
    Tread: 5.4" (138mm) center of wheels, side-to-side

    6.5" (166mm) at rear wheels, widest point

    We would like to hear what everyone has to say about this. These are high quality kits that are inexpensive. They vary in price and are around $125 to $160 depending on the version. They come with an ESC and motor and run on a stick pack. Maybe we could participate in the TCS series.
