ABC hobby's mini truck
 
Anyone built one of these? They look really cool.

No, I haven't built one. You're right about them being cool, though. What scale are they?

M-Chassis
I think they are the ones that fit over the Tamiya M- Series chassis...'
They Do Say not for the M-03 though...

The green one on the top of the page and the silver one in the pics below appear to have the same wheels as the Tamiya Mini Cooper.

Anyone know where I can find pics of it without the body?

ABC is Japanese not Chinese like I thought.
Anyone know where I can buy their bodies, they look like they'll fit nicely on my m03.

Nice.Thanks.:D

magnat 04-23-2008 05:55 PM

RE: ABC hobby's mini truck
 
There 1/10th Mini scale... which is not the same as regular 1/10th... So these Shells will not fit a TT-01 or TC3 or any regular size chassis.. There a Short wheel base Chassis which is what the M- stands for..

So if you buy one to try and fit on a RS4, then it wont fit..

Just check out rcmart but don't see the mini truck shell there. Don't think they have it.

It's kinda hard to spot since from the front it looks like a car.

Oh yeah saw that one but it's not the one I was looking for.

RE: ABC hobby's mini truck
 
Oh, you mean mini(as in mini cooper). Here, it's in the full size section.
It looks as if it is only available as a set with a chassis.

Seems like they don't sell the shell separate. No choice but to order the whole kit then.

I like the way you think.:D
Be sure to let us know how the chassis handles, quality, speed,etc.

Has anyone bought one of those abc hobby body shells and fitted it on any of the m chassis? I have an M 01 and I was wondering if they would fit. I want to fit this one on my M01. http://www.abchobbyusa.com/celica1600gt.aspx

The ABC 1/10 M chassis is pretty good, I had one that I had one of their Datsun shells on, good car. High quality parts, shocks, tuning, etc.
