QUOTE I like the Mini with the two motors, very different.
Could you please tell me if the wheels are plastic, or alloy with resin inserts, and who made them, plus the tyres you used, as they look great.

The wheels were modified eigthies style BSCRA wheels for sponge tyres, narrowed etc,
tyres were Ortmanns, can't remember which ones, but turned down quite a bit, may have been Scalextric C75 Merc 190 tyres, I think.
Inserts were the plastic wheels from the Airfix static kit turned down to size and drilled as per Cooper S wheels.
built this thing 20+ years ago. its got an uprated motor in it and was pretty un-drivable on the old mini slix tyres...not much better on the new dtm set up but entetaining all the same!

oh...its been christened "the frog" it looks and handles like one!!

Martin it's a PRS Mini, looks great performance wasn't too good, I think the model has been copied and is now available elsewhere. I may get another now I'd love to build a brass chassis for one

one day..................

It's difficult not to have a soft spot for the Mini, here's a few of my ones.

A resin pickup

A battered Airfix Mini fitted to a PCS32 chassis and given a respray

A pair of Scalextric 1275GTs. The red one having been lowered as compared to the original yellow one.

Troby??? Troby made a Mini? Do tell us more Bernard... I think even the French don't know about that one, or at least I've never seen or heard of this...

QUOTE has anyone ever heard about the 1960 australian c76

The C76 FWD Mini was available in the UK in red or green, in AUS and NZ it was also avaliable in black, but it is quite scarce.
And it would not be 1960 but 1965-69
The fastback is a Broadspeed GT 2+2. From the same Broadspeed who went on to race Fords.

Another one who would like to know more about the Trobi Mini, Bernard.

I like the Hornby C7 Minis and just picked up a job lot from Ebay which included a nice example of one I haven't got. I think it's referred to as the "Type 5.5" on the Slot Car Portal - it has flared wheel arches, an RX motor and is red all over, Was this version only available in red, whereas the previous black roofed cars were available in white and yellow too?
