A little work in progress.... got my 3d printed rally light pod delivered so just working on fine tuning its fitment and the getting to work on the lights..... Fitted to an original M03 mini cooper kit.....

The original shell was painted some rather interesting colors, and no matter what we tried we couldn't get it off so I ended up experimenting with painting the outside of the shell and sealing it with clear coat....

Chassis has a couple of hopup options, uprated shocks, some aluminium uprights etc...

M Chassis are very dear to my heart. My love affair started with an M04 Alfa Romeo Giulia, then to M06 Pro Alfa Romeo Giulia, which I started to race in 2012. I raced the M06 until 2019, where she retired and made room for M08.  

Pictures as follows: 

1. Action shot of my White / Red Giulia M06 at 2017 Tamiya Championship Series, placing 3rd.

2. White / Blue M06 winning concours at TCS 2019. Raced M06 did poorly

3. M06 Blue Red Renault R5 winning concours at TCS 2020. Raced M08 and placed 4th

4. M06 Red / Green Giulia winning concours at TCS 2021 (photographer needs to be fired)

5. M08 / Yellow Alpine A110, winning 1st place at TCS 2021

Have my Renault on the M05Ra chassis. Thought it odd that Tamiya used a front wheel drive chassis for a rear wheel drive car.

At the time of the release there was the M05/M06. That body won’t fit the M06. It will fit the M08 😁

M-Four day..  even took a picture of the rashed body. :lol:  

On this chassis I'm going to have Billy ride along in the future.  I love Mini's and dual CF deck chassis.

Nice. I was recently looking for the same but went for the Phat Bodies version. £14 including delivery for a set of 4. Seems very good so far. 

Just desperate for the delivery of UK parts so I can get a set of road tyres for my Escort. Some on eBay, but not at those prices.

Was I supposed to take pictures of the body too?   :huh:

Take pics of whatever you want, as long as it is M-chassis related, I think everyone is happy to see it 🙂

Just be aware though, that if we all start posting lots of stuff that isn't made directly by Tamiya, it may possibly get looked at by admin.

Just please 'note' that this 'General Discussion' sub-category is 'Tamiya related' and they have another category for other makes, and I am sure we would all hate to get this thread shut down. If you do post Cartens, M4s, Cup Racers and other aftermarket cars etc, please try to keep the post heavily Tamiya related (i.e, post a M0-something along with it) so we dont get in trouble 🙂

Really enjoying all the posts, lads! love seeing what everyone else is up to! 🤩

That’s one bad #&@ Mini. Love the slammed look.

I have the MonteCarlo version on my Top Sabre S4 Mini. It’s scoots quite well.

I was going to get them from phat bodies but shipping to US was 18GBP! Even from RCmart was extortionate. I ordered these from eBay and they were the last 2 packs he had, but it took about 3-4 weeks to get here which was a bit long for me but they are awesome. 

I was going to purchase another phatbody and have them shipped in the same package but saw them on eBay. Working on the light post this weekend.

Loving that slammed mini look too!

Always interesting to see how other mount the Mini body on the Sabre Mini. I used some HPI racer mounts to rig it up.

I will post my SabreFWD one tomorrow.  I will then follow up my M01, M03, M05's with the body on.  Thanks for looking.
