The Mini-Z is faster at first, but the Micro has space for such big motors (e.g. Speed 300) and so many cells that in theory you should be able to build a faster Micro and Mini-Z. However, NML's Mini-Z looks faster than any Micro I've seen! (do a search for the vids).

It depends on how much money you want to spend and how fast you want to go. If you don't want to spend alot on a good ESC, fast motor, good batteries, get a Mini-Z with a turbo and X-Speed. If you have lots of money to spend and want to be super fast, get a Micro with a good ESC, Orion Big Block motor and a couple of sets of Ofna brick batteries. And with a Micro you need a servo and radio equipment, too.

First of all I am not bias to anyone of the 2 as I own both and like them both very much. The HPI RS4 Micro is faster, even stock, and can go as fast if not faster than a 1/10th if the money is spent. I hope this helps clear things up. I own only 1 Micro but I own 2 Mini Z's by the way!
