Try ukmicrorc forum for info. All the current regulations on there.
A company called phatbodies makes a b4 based micro (2wd) called chunk.
Also a touring car based 4wd but i think this was just put together for his own entertainment. Its well worth a look.

Wheelbase?? 190mm max (get as close to this as you can)
Track?? 209mm max (200mm to 205mm seems optiamal)
Gear ratios used?? Internal ratio 2.5:1 IMHO
Final running weight?? 900g seems optimal power to weight ratio
