Interesting... Well, the more the merrier. More competition is good, and expanding the 1/28 scale market is always a good thing. :)

They call it a 1:24 scale... it's so hard to throw mini-zs into a certain scale, they are all different scales, whatever fits the wheel base is what they make it as.

At least it's honest, that is it's not hyped up like the hei pao listings that use referances to the Kyosho's and such. All it is is a $10 toy that would be sold at any five and dime store.

Yeah. I remember looking at the Hei Peo crap and seeing that "this retails for $100+ dollars just for the transmitter" ... uhh... what's that? Sue you? Why not :D

yeah, this thing is only worth $5 in any stores.
i've seen it in toy stores selling for $5, and very low quality.
nothing to do with miniZ

i had gotten one of these to try out its a bit larger than mini-z and too heavy for its own good 2 speed forward and reverse non propo steering dont waste your money it also runs on 4 aas and is quite heavy with them the pinion stripped out from just running it on carpet

Any parts interchangable with the mini-z? Like using the bodies for beaters?

it does have a "coniform gear wheel differential gear on rear axle which guarantees the model enjoys perfect turning property"...so its got that going for it which is nice. Gottal love the asenglish! ;)

I tell you my z doesn't do THAT! :rolleyes:

My Hei Pao says "Mini Z" all over it. :D That RIP looks better quality than Hei Pao, that's for sure. Ninja: get one and we'll see if it can out run my Focus. :p

OMG!

That is a nasty replica. I've not seen anything quite that bad before.

Burn time after new battery installed: 2-3 HoursSeems like that'd be fun, only $10 for 2-3 hours of fake Mini-Z fire! :D
