Any 1/10th TC Bodyshell can be used, cut out neatly to ensure there are no sharp edges.

Includes all Tamiya 'M' Chassis derivatives, MO1, MO2, MO3, MO4, MO5, MO6 etc. Standard Tamiya kit 540, sports tuned, Saturn 20t or 17.5T Brushless motors.

If further rules around motors are needed in the future we’ll review this at the time. 6 cell Nicd, Nimh, and hard cased 2s 7.4v Lipo’s can be used.
Any mini rubber tyre on 42mm rim can be used. No double inserts or Foam tyres permitted.
The Club Committee fully accept that there are a number of other “Mini style” RC chassis’ on the market, but if possible we would like to keep it to the popular Tamiya kits to keep things on a level playing field. However, if you have something that you would like to race in the Mini Class, at the discretion of the Club Committee we may allow something which has similar performance to the Tamiya Cars so please get in contact and ask.
