Take the new challenge from Mini-Z. Incredible running power in a palmtop size! The birth of the first of its kind in an off-road car!

Equipped with internally integrated precision R/C mechanisms and also long stroke suspension has delivered a new running freedom. A big hit the world over, the Mini-Z has now evolved into an authentic off-road SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle). Suspension system combines shocks on each wheel, A-shape swing arms and parallel rods, with unique patterned pneumatic rubber tyres. Having made its name as an indoor car, the Mini-Z is now ready for the conquest of off-road terrain! People will voice their amazement at the running power beyond their imagination. Equipped with a diff lock function as standard, hill climbs of 45 degrees will get eaten for breakfast! With its realistic and detailed form, and cat-like handling flexibility, there is plenty of excitement in the tank of this off-roader!

http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/data/1336/OL-b.jpg Deep suspension stroke realised through uniquely designed combination of parallel upper rods and A-shape under arms on both front and rear. Also, equipped with servo saver to protect against shocks from the track. Promises responsive steering and handling on a multitude of road surfaces.

http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/data/1336/OL-c.jpg High frequency FET amp developed with brake function as well as reverse. High performance and power realised consistently during extended time periods. Top quality circuitry allows use of AM27MHz narrow band frequencies for up to 6 cars to race at t he same time.

http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/data/1336/OL-d.jpg 6 different set-up variables allow 4 different wheelbases possible on the newly designed chassis. Allows various body styles to be fitted. Suspension units on front and rear move up and down independently giving greater freedom for body choice.

http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/data/1336/OL-e.jpg Four AAA alkaline batteries (sold separately) can provide about 1 hour of run time. However, with the one-touch battery holder, battery changes can be completed in a flash.

http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/data/1336/OL-f.jpg Lock the differential gear by simply inserting the included Diff-Lock Plate. Maintains traction and delivers strong running characteristics for effective hill climbs etc.

http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/data/1336/OL-g.jpg Damper units on all four wheels work together to hug the contours of the road surface for minimal traction loss. Special pattern pneumatic rubber tyres mean you can choose any surface to run on.

Electronics Configuration

(No image) Standard AM radio system combines the receiver and speed control for efficient running and precise control. New RA-4B FETs allow better power handling.
