P4M, aka, a Pro 4 Mini.

Sorry for the blurryness, it was about to rain and it finally did when I snapped the last one.

Its built out of a pile of spares I have from a Pro 4 and a Cyclone.

The body is the old beater from an Ebay M03 - the wheelbase is right but the width is out and the front arches needed enlarging.

It still takes 6 cells, and the front gearbox design means it can be swapped from a spool, or a diff to a oneway when needed. Front wheel drive, but if I can get the centreshaft cut down, it can be 4wd too.

Haven't run it yet though. Any Q's, just ask.

Just a few more jobs to do before its ran, such as countersinking the bottom rear of the chassis, and getting some longer front shock tower screws and spacers.

hi mate,

like your car...Just a thought...would something like a Kamtec shell be any help. the ones for the ministock are 178mm width or the ones for he v12 are a bit larger and may well accomodate
