  1. It looks like a Mini? Well, it’s a Mini alright. But it’s definitely unlike any other Mini.

    Modelling is done just great. The car being a remodel, that wouldn’t matter – except it does, because none of the modelling would be visible if thepaintjob wasn’t well done, and it is. Base one isn’t yet another Boring Red Mini, it has its own style while keeping up with the small racer vibe. My favourite details are tyre branding nd sponsor decals, all fitting into RC nature of the game and offering some nice puns. Visually, I love it to bits.

    On track, as advertised, it’s fast. Whopping 53kph in a straight line. Once you get there, you’ll escape pretty much anyone in a Rookie, and a decent chunk of Amateurs as well. But – again, as advertised – you do need to get there, and the acceleration doesn’t make it an easy task. Sure, if you have a wide track and a long straight ahead of you, you’re home – but don’t be deceived by small dimensions and a 4WD. Gearing is so long you’ll dread slow corners and hairpins, because drivetrain doesn’t give you anything until 36-38kph. Then the weight kicks in, and you’re left feeling somewhat sluggish on track.

    That’s not bad in this case though. LR 64 is basically a cheeseburger – fat and slopy, but once it kicks in, you’re stable for a long time. And the ride is just that – fat and stable. The car sticks to the ground perfectly, and doesn’t run like an ordinary jittery 4WD – it actually has some understeer, making it more similar to an FWD. It’s got an incredible amount of grip thanks to the weight and fairly wide tyres, and even while brawling for positions it might positively surprise you. As long as its minuscule body doesn’t betray you and spin you out from contact, that is.

    It’s an entirely different experience than one might look for in a Mini. But boy, once you click with it, it’s fun.

    Pros:
    – Very polished and pleasing looks, both in terms of modelling and paintjobs
    – Insane top speed
    – Lots of grip on most surfaces, with minor differences

    Cons:
    – Drop a brick on throttle, go get some tea, and you might come back in time for it topping up
    – Vulnerable to spins in traffic if fighting too hard
    – Weight is both a curse and a blessing, depending on track
