Losi Mini-T 1/18 RC Cars

Losi Mini-T: More info here
I’ve been interested in R/C cars for as long as I can remember. From the crappy Newbright cars that you can pick up at Wal-Mart, to 1/10 scale nitro trucks, I’ve dabbled in almost ever aspect of the hobby (as far as on-road vehicles go). From all the time, money, and research that I’ve put into this hobby, I’ve concluded that the Losi Mini T (1/18 scale) is one of the best and most customizable hobby grade R/C’s on the market. The Mini-T comes RTR (ready-to-run), including a battery pack that accepts AA batteries, a transmitter, and the car. The design of the chassis is very simple and easy to work on, utilizing a rear motor 280 sized electric motor, straight pinion to spur gear driveline, and a rear wheel drive differential. The RTR kit can be had for right under 100 dollars from ebay and costs about the same at most hobby shops. Team Losi offers a few upgrades including: oil filled shocks, motor upgrades (including brushless systems), and some aluminum parts. There’s a wide array of aftermarket parts from companies such as GPM, Integy, Hot Racing, MIP, 3Racing, and many more. Parts materials range from aluminum and titanium alloys to figerglass and carbon fiber and most of the aftermarket upgrades are very affordable. A very competitive Mini-T can be built for right under 300 dollars and offer more run time and better performance than most 1/10 and 1/8 nitro R/C’s.
My “must have” list of upgrades for a Mini-T includes:

These are enough parts to build a bulletproof Mini-T and are friendly to the stock electronics.
