OL's are the slowest of all the Mini-Z's in stock form.....but they don't have to stay that way.........

They are plenty quick enough to enjoy playing with and they are much better on rougher surfaces such as concrete of short carpet, they have more suspension travel and ground clearance than the cars thus they can go places cars can't go.....

...if you want to explore the extremes that an OL can go to, check some of the pics in my Album

Those are RCP foam mats. You can order them from some places online, but the cheapest prices I have seen are here.

But if you can't afford RCP there are some homemade foam tracks that you could make for a fraction of what a true RCP track costs.

if you race all of them stock, the overland would be the slowest, but if you change the moter on the ol it would make a difference coz of the good supension, although mr-02 and ma010 are faster than the ol, it can't be run on suface like concret or carpet, so now thats something good about the ol
