Looks like one of the mini-z clone descendents.

Hope this isnt spam ;)

Man, on contrary, I've heard it's an xmods clone, that's why I really want to know how it is, especially on inside...I asked on several forums...but nobody knows and since here I can see more european forum members, I still hope I can have an answer. Either way, miniz or xmods clone, It's only 20 euro and since both are not available in my country...but this clone is...guess what it's easier for me to purchase ?

Wherever I asked, nobody thought it could be spam...why here ?...kind of dissapointing answer for a first time post ! :confused:

nothing against you i'm certain. being one of most popular mini-z forums makes you a target for spammers or spambots. we've had a rash of these in the last month or so.

please let us know if you find more information.

This isn't Carson's first crack at Mini scale.
A few years back they released a 2WD pan based 1/24 called the "Speedy 24"
The design of this was very similar to the ABC DTM 1/24 scale.
Unfortunately this didn't quite take off, but they were very capable Mini scalers.
I found a PDF on them, it's in German but it has some decent photos. Carson Speedy 24 PDF (http://www.vth.de/archiv/texte/amt2001_01_022.pdf)
