Hi Tweedbean.

Following on to my previous post on this topic, I would add that electric cars as opposed to Nitro are far more environmentally friendly. No noise or smoke and less hassle, just have a few spare charged batteries and you can have a lot of fun

RC Nitro Trucks Cars Radio Controlled Helicopters Planes Petrol Remote Control Plane And Boats UK

Hope that helps.

Check out Racing Devil Hobbies. They are based in Richmond BC, Canada.

Racing Devil Vancouver Canada RC Hobby store

MINIs aren't listed on their website but at the physical store, they do have a 1/24 scale Kyosho MINI as well as other scale MINIs and minis.

Their ebay store is here, but you should call or email them your inquiries for any specific car.

Shop eBay Canada Store - Racing Devil Hobbies:: Heli Parts, RC Accessories

I'm not associated with the folks there, but I do enjoy just hanging out and drooling over all the stuff they have at the store.

Good luck.

Got my Electric Mini Cooper 'S' RTR GT14 a couple of weeks ago.....very impressed

My only criticism is the steering.....it has a poor lock which reduces it's maneuverability

This is the first electric car I have owned, the others have been nitro powered, and I must say electric is far less hassle without the need to take fuel with you.....just a spare receiver battery.
I love the 4-wheel drive and reverse, and the fact you don't need to brake as the electric motor does it for you. As Tweedbean said roll on when I can use it outside

At the weekend I cut the lawn so tried driving the mini on it, the wheels just spun because the chassis was too low. On very short grass it may be OK. Goes great on Tarmac

That price sounds about right with the Dollar/Pound exchange rate. I paid about 125 including an additional re-chargeable receiver battery pack.
