This is the Kyosho 'GP Mantis mini FF chassis' Nitro version front wheel drive chassis with the Morris Mk I mini cooper S body, got this NIB cheap a few years ago, was going to sell it but just can't let it go so here it is. the chassis and the body is exactly the same size as the short M-chassis so they are interchangeable. the Kyosho shell is a nice alternative to the Tamiya M01 mini as it has more chrome parts (as well as the bumpers and grill, the light bezels, handles, wipers and fuel caps) but the rendition of the wheel guards are not as good.....guess it's good to have Rover as well as Morris. The Chassis is a funny one; as far as I know this is the only GP Front drive chassis? please let me know others. but it didn't do too well in the test run; I think it need dampers to say the least. Cheers for looking and comments are always welcome.
