I have one too bought in Japan 10 years ago with Mugen NSX GT500 Body. My hobby shop where I started to race from 2 months ago suggest keeping it as collector then tampered with. Biggest issue is front end parts are discontinue so you break it, it is done.

did a search and found this...
from a thread posted by arch2b (http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33335)

don't really know what it's all about, but it does show that it can be done... personally i'd rather spend the money on a mr015, mr02 or mr03 2.4ghz asf...

oh and in case you do convert your mr01, i would highly suggest aluminum servo gears...

hope this helps and good luck...

i'm actually contemplating doing this myself. i already have mr-03 race chassis's and this would just be a fun rebuild project on the nostalgic mr-01 chassis. i do miss this chassis and all it's frustrating quirks.

Just make sure to use that metal servo gear :rolleyes: I raced the MR01 chassis for a while early on... even after I had a few MR02's. It was still competetive, as long as you protected it well.
