ok, no one else see the new post on kyoshosan? 50th anniv. mr-03 VE! if that gets you excited. what little was posted simply states an improved brushless motor (why do that when the stock is just now hitting the stores?) and a red ball diff (could be extended run from red chassis kit?).

without knowing what the deal with the motor is, i'd say it's a bit of a dud. the premium price will get you an unknown motor and red ball diff instead of the normal one the VE kit comes with (blue or black, anyone know?).

I got to drive a brushless mr03. I'm not sure why anyone would actually buy the stock motor. It is painful to drive because the motor has no punch, no drag brake, and isn't very fast. I would recommend anyone looking to buy the stock brushless motor to hold off and wait for PN and Atomic to release their motors.

I expect the brushless motor to be the same wind/kv and that they have just improved the wire type to something that doesn't break so easily and is hopefully a little more flexible.

holy crap, you gotta really want the 50th anniversary car to pay that kind of pricing.

The way Kyosho is going with all there prices is getting out of hand. Granted I understand the driving forces behind it but at some point it's got to get to a breaking point.

absolutely hysterical what they are suggesting the market price should be (MSRP). absolutely detached from reality, bonkers, delusional, etc., etc. the pricing of VE kits are beyond the breaking point in my opinion, but thats a discussion for another thread :rolleyes:

MZW118R Mini-Z SP Tool Set Red



Does this set have everything needed to work on ALL Mini-z chassis types?

arch2b

Does this set have everything needed to work on ALL Mini-z chassis types?

not really. i have the black color set.
i do not use the following; h3.5 box wrench, H5.5 box wrench, #1 philips screw driver, 1.5mm hex head screw driver.

i do use the following; flat head screw driver, #0 philips screw driver, h4.5 box wrench. the #0 philips slips less than my PN and atomic philips. the h4.5 box wrench also has a hand seat inside that keeps nuts from getting pushed so far inside you have to dig them out if they get stuck. it just works very well.

in reality, the atomic multi toll is the ultimate however just can't get them anymore. the one wrench gave you a great box head wrench end and the other end was a very good hex head wrench and so so philips head.

in my opinion, PN makes the best 1.5 and .9mm hex head wrenches for mini-z. the kyosho model isn't as precisely tooled and actually slips. the set just doesn't come with .9mm which is a very common head for mini-z grub screws, set screws, etc.

if you have an MR-03 VE, i highly recommend the kyosho dnano screw driver as you will need it for the screws on the servo cover. it's not cheap though.

i wish the kyosho set came with .9mm hex head instead of pointless h3.5 box wrench. i'm not sure what the h5.5 box head wrench is for. those are 2 i've never used.

one other criticism, the tool heads are held tight with yet another size set screw, which is not included in the set:confused: why on earth would they use a set screw that isn't adjustable with the tools in the kit?

TheSteve

I think the Kyosho tool set is great if you get it for a good price.(25 bucks or less) I use both the #0 and #1 philips. The #0 is for the odd small screw used in a MiniZ, the #1 is what I use 95% of the time. As has been stated already Kyosho should have included a 0.9mm hex. I guess someone approached them and suggested they sell the set without actually customizing it.


The MA020 sounds very exciting, a new front end and brushless, with hopefully an updated servo would be a potential mr03 killer.

I see Kyosho will also be releasing a slower brushless motor, looks to be blue in color. With any luck it makes a good stock motor replacement and will offer insane run time.

good point on the ECO brushless motor. this should address stock class racing when VE chassis takes over, it's only a matter of time really.
