Hello Mini-Zers,
My name is Kenichi Mifune, and I just received my Esso Supra today along with an X-Speed. The Esso is so much more impressive in person than in pictures. The fenders are so wide I doubt the mirrors will ever break off. Besides, I'll probably never race that body because it is so sweeet. ;)

All joking aside, the Esso is very cool. and check out the bonus item in the pic.

thanks pHREDD.

couldn't find info so anybody... What tire compound is stock on the mr02? They seem much softer than my old-ish stock mr01s.

I love the blue/white scheme.

cool cars kenchi... mind giving us some info on the other two z's?

as for the tires i believe that they are of a softer compound... (thank goodness!!!) compared to the older versions... just don't know the exact shore... i guess it'll be 30-40... but i'm just guessing... :D

thanks Butler :D lol

- '67 Corvette 427 Roadster (w/Viper mirrors). Parade driven.
- '95 Mustang Cobra. This one really takes a beating.
They're built a while ago, both on mr-01 chassis.

I am looking forward to some MR02 custom bodies. BTW Ken is that 95 Mustang an AMT Snapfast kit? I have one that I am working on now for my project, along with a 96 Camero Z28. My plans are on my MR02MM chassis, cause both are 102 mm wheelbase cars, and I am not good at chopping them in half.

It wasn't Snapfast but it was 1/25. At that scale the chassis will clear but the wheels might rub. Keep us updated.

a T-Bucket would be challenging.

It was the purple color that had me going, my snapfast mustang is molded in purple, of course that will change. the T-bucket idea may need a whole new chassis layout with a micro servo wired to a mini z PCB. Maybe a brass chassis with a link from the micro servo to the front, hmmm. After looking at your pic again the headlights on the stang is more detailed than my snapfast kit chromed over piece. I went the snapfast route so I would not have to glue the hood on, I am trying to make it to take a beating.

I was checking out mini-tools today--there were lifts, jacks, jack stands, tool boxes and so on. However, after totaling the costs I decided to purchase another OL instead since they were still some on sale. I also picked up some Tamiya tires for it and I don't think they look too bad--they are on the silver BMW. I still need to get some different shocks for it since the ones I modified at home were too stiff. I also like your vette too. ;)
