    Just wondering if anybody was running these anymore? Great little machines, mine has been setting on the shelf for awhile. And was thinking about bringing it back out this winter. Any tracks in Iowa?

    I raced one once on carpet, it was awesome. Otherwise, I believe minis are things of the past :(

    I just purchased an rc 18r (Kamino) and my buddy has 2 of them. I also have an RC18t2. I prefer the shaft drive set up more. Unfortunately, as sylvain said, they may be a thing of the past. I do know there is a track in my home town for minis and micros. I plan to make a special trip soon. ;)

    I got lucky and found the Mitsubishi Lancer and Xsara Citroen bodies for it!!

    Funnest thing we use to race.
    Bump and grind all the way through the corners and down the straight in a blink.
    Now my kids first car. She calls it the little feller, since it is so small.
    Shaft was the way, keep it simple. Set the front diff 1/4 turn tighter and not worry.

    I may have to brake mine out later this month at the big indoor race up here.
    Haven't touched it in years.
    But still one of my favorite.

    Should be everyone's first car!
    Cheap, fast, tough as nails, and tones of options.
    This should be a focus for AE not a forgotten platform.
    Eny thing over 200 should not be a targeted market for beginners, how are the multiple
    RTR selling for over 300- 500 selling?
