Got this Kyosho Mini-Z Mr01 second hand on my own country!

This came to my hand's with a body to forget it! Extremelly used and cuted everywhere!! But that is a good thing... buy another :)

Came with reversed steering... it was a pain in the a** to make it right... but i managed...

What i noticed... only 2WD... i hope i not regreetit!!

(found out later that miniz's are 2wd, and if want awd need to buy the awd chassis) So dumb, i feel now... but hey, we all were baby's once... no one borns teached!

So the pictures of the: Mini-Z Mr01

-Stays like that!!.

I guess (only guess) it helped a little, just a little! But no... it's maybe 2% better of back spin.... :(

I will try some diferent aproach, now...

nice you got everything working...
if you had the older controller (kt-2)... you wouldn't have gone as far as re soldering the pot... since it has a throttle and steering reverse switch on top...

those are really nice rims... but i'm afraid that the lancer evo body will only take standard narrow 0 offset rims...

so i guess it's time for a new body... :D

do you live near a track? maybe some guys can help you out...

And... more 2% of less back spin... i guess.. maybe my mind wants that!! :)

PS:(later i found out that those Mini-z's are only for track, otherwise without grip surfaces even with super grip tires the back spins out everywhere) ehehe, home track it is :)

nice updates...
one thing though... being an mr01... you might want to swap out the plastic servo gears for metal ones... :D

the tire/rim combo sticking out of the body with the bigger wheel wells, kinda seem like a recipe for busted servo gears...

-With the central shock it does not spin it's tail like before! Need to find :) (install) the oil one, 2wd drive cars are a pita to make it go straight and around corners, but when knowing it's a go go go play! and they are fast enough, not need for chilli's or even AD stock motor's! A simple AWD motor or Atomic Stock is bloody enough! Otherwise it will be out of control!

And love how this mr01 ends... Gyro,Mr03 PCB,Stacked fets,Alloy all over which possible,Bearings,Aftermarket suspension,aftermarket motor,aftermarket tires...
And above all, it's super controlled now to drive with the 70turn motor...

One last thing to do, is to check if the 130 can got bearings, if not put one with bearings with the 70t shaft, one silver brush on the red motor cable, and gold neo mags! It should give a nice hoarse/kick for the 70T motor! ;)
