Just sitting around one day and thought it would be fun to do a Mini-Z off-road class. I know we have the Overlands and the Monsters but with this conversion, all the parts are more readily available. Let me know what you guys think. We will be testing this weekend at our Z Challenge. Come on down if you want to take a test drive.

I really want to know how it drives... post a video when you get a chance...

Nice tower bars on that 015 ;)

The tower bars work great on this thing. If this becomes a hit this weekend, I am going to need a lot more. It drives really well and jumps pretty level. I will get some videos from this weekends race.

That's a good looking little truck, having that lexan Micro-t body on top must be great at preventing roll-overs.. Those MR-02 front conversion bars for the MR-015 look great as well..

Yes Sir.... John aka Illamatic is setting up an off road track for this as we speak.

Actually the class and cost to run this weekend is confusing. See my post on rcracing. Looks like running mini 90mm only will cost only $5????? And an extra $10 if you're running AWD only vs. just running 2wd (If there is enough people for the AWD)

1:44 tonya harding on the corner marshall! hahaha! Looks like fun. Jumps pretty good too, but that may be because of motor? Does it drive better than a Micro-T or Overland?

For sure it drives better than the Micro-T. The reason I think it will be fun is that everyone has a MR-02 or MR015 sitting around with no plans. The conversion is easy and cheap. Overland parts are hard to get and not many people have them.
