i like the idea of brushless, but after seeing how fast this goes already, you would struggle to find somewhere big enough for a brushless mini t JMO

MMmmm in a world of small people and small cars... I guess it looks like fun.



Now if we could get a Genesis to carry one in the back, that would be fun.



Just kidding mate, I must admit it looked like quite a hoot seeing it driving around the car park.Edited by: Skidd

Husky only had road threads on it when running in the gravel, not even offroad spikes or paddles on it.

You mean he is going to have to hop-up the mini-t as well?? I wonder what a set of 40 series would look like on a mini-t?? Appropriately scaled of course.

Hey husky



I am very much interested in these mini t's.



Just wondering what they cost in Australia. Are they all hype (read so
many forums it's not funny) or actually a functional down sized 2wd
monster. Any part breakages and durability issues? I am asking
you cause you have experience with it rather then people posting
eg. "its good " "its crap" type of threads which gets annoying.



Seems fun fun fun. Also whats it like FULLY stock.



FULLY sick?

toilet duck has a fully stock one and it still weelies. In australia you will pay $230-$250 MRC was getting some in pretty cheap. Mine with a few upgrades flies! Ive hit stuff at near full speed and no breakages. Took it off some deascent bmx jumps on sunday and only broke one of the body pin holes(it was a good 1.5 m jump = to a 27m jump in 1:1
) One jump even landed on the roof. So i would say no durability issues, they are a fully functional 2wd car. Heaps of fun.

Hi all


My BL mini t runs like a raped ape on bitumen, uncontrollable donuts on sandy surfaces and kamekaze like when mucking around in doors. Get this thing on the track and for the first few minutes you'l laugh your ar$e off, but then it'll just get annoying not being able to really drive it round the track. Concentrations the key here lads.You really need a big track with wide corners to see this thing fly

I know I have possibly too many RC cars already, and I've planned a
whole raft of repairs and upgrades to my VTR1000, but that MiniT seems
mighty tempting at that price.




Perhaps I could purchase one 'for my girlfriend' and borrow it occasionally.

So come on Sir Husky... tell us what hop ups are on the drawing board.

Well i did have a whole list of upgrades i was gonna do but ive since decided to get an electric mini
so the funding will go into that. Ill have to settle for some offroad tyresand alloy wheels. It doesnt seem like the type of car that breaks so hopefully its cheap!

A 60km/h T is just what I would like to use to red-face some 1/10
tourers here in Sydney. Plus if I feel like it, I will be able to cross
the grass/ gravel path around the corners to put other tourer drivers
off.



What a spectacle. We are breeding a whole new class here......
