These are some pics of a brand new Mini-Z I've put together for my son, who is 13 years old.
He lives in South Africa and Mini-Zs just don't exist there.
He already has one Mini-Z, but as we know, one is never enough.
This new 'Z is a suprise, he has no idea that it's coming.

It has:

X-Speed Motor
TopCAD Alloy Motor Mount
TopCAD alloy steering knuckled
TopCAD alloy BBS wheels with wide rear
TopCAD 20 degree soft tires
Bearings all round
Kyosho carbon H-Plate
TopCAD alloy front bulkhead
Kyosho front spring kit (red/soft)
Front Bumper

Edit: I broke the side mirror off!

You're son will be so excited he will overlook the missing mirror in the first weeks he plays with it :D

Yes, he has an Energizer 4 hour charger and 12 750mAh NiMh AAAs

It's not his first Mini-Z, he allready has two!
He also has a fully tricked Mini-Z F1 McLaren, it has bearings, Kyosho ball-diff, X-Speed motor, Square alloy wheels with Kyosho 30 Deg slicks and stainless kingpins
He got that for his birthday in October 2002.

His original Mini-Z is a Porsche with X-Speed, Bearings, TopCAD ball-diff and alloy motor mount.
It's bodyshell is so beaten up, LOL, looks like a stolen and recovered car.

I try my best. He's also a BIG RC fan and races slot cars twice a week.
Here's a pic of us together on his Quad Bike

mini-zfuel, LOL!

Expect an ad in the Mini-Z Market:

Wanted, blue mirror set for Viper GTS.

Yea, the Viper is awesome, built mainly from excess parts I have accumulated over the years. They all come from spontaneous on-line shopping sprees. Click now, think later... :p

My kids original Mini-Z (The Porsche) has a burnt out FET, he drove it to death.
The Viper is a replacement, I'll keep his old one and do a FET upgrade on the ESC.
His F1 is his pride an joy, he doesn't drive it too much, uses it as a static display model more than anything else.


I am a born off-roader, so biking runs in the family.
Quads make me vervous, as they have a tendancy to stick around when you bail off them.
The Banshee is stuck in South Africa, I get to ride it once a year, but I know my kid rides it when I'm back in the UK.

if i move to south africa and call you dad, would you send me one of each of those things too? (a quad and a mini-z eh?)


2003.01.21, 05:21 AM
