December:

MINI-Z Buggy Readyset TURBO OPTIMA Mid Special White
Part No. 32092W



MINI-Z Buggy Readyset TURBO OPTIMA Mid Special White
Part No. 32092W



These are some nice looking, dare I say, vintage offerings?

MINI-Z Case (With Accesory tray)
Part No. MZW123



I'm sure this one will appeal to many people. My only concern is that the height may not be compatible with tall autoscales nor it looks like any LM autoscales.
Quote:
Dimensions: approx. 201 x 108 x 52mm
Maximum MINI-Z size: approx. 187 x 95 x 48mm
What I would like to have seen from something like this is a parts bin below for specific extra/accessory parts for each car to be stored. we all tend to have extra wheels, different springs, etc. for specific bodies that we change for track conditions and would be really nice to create a pit box of sorts for each car. The PN autoscale boxes look to be large enough to do something like this.

Belt crawler unit Catappi (for MINI-Z 4x4 / 2 pieces)
Part No. MXW009



Spare shoe for Catappi (20pcs / for MXW009)
Part No. MXW009-1



Diecast Front Axle Case
Part No. MXW008

Updated the post for November to include the re-release of the R32 GT-R white body and the 2002 WRC white body. It's been some time since we've seen a run of these so I'm sure there will a lot of happy people.

I updated November and December listings. December brings us a parts box that can double as a car carrier.

Whoever designs and produces the ideal Mini Z pit box will become a millionaire! Just kidding, but I have yet to see anyone with a totally dialed pit box or carrying cases. I've seen 1/10 pit boxes with integrated battery chargers and flip-up work lights, looks like a NASCAR pit area. Maybe that's my next lockdown project.

There was just a huge stream about this on social media. There was a lot of the Harbor Frieght cases, Plano tackle boxes etc. All are good options, but this modified Drone racing Backpack seemed to be closest to what you are talking about.https://youtu.be/rpYbE24Wq5I
Impressive, but he put ALOT of work into it. I always carry a ton of stuff to race night, but I am the owner and storer of the timing system, bridge, track, laptop, and my own gear. It makes for a full car.

wow, reminds me so much of myself in effort to try to organize everything and with integrated power supply. my V1 pit box had an internal PS robbed from a dead PC and dual PC case fans for cooling cars. This can very easily take this off track... to return, I like the Kyosho pit box, box but given it's limited compatibility, it's just not for me. I appreciate the thought but really was it too much to ask to make it fit all available bodies (non movie themed)? Plus they are a good 20 years late to the game.

More likely than not, they didn't produce a custom container designed for the purpose, but picked an existing, available size and screened their logo on it.

I suppose the range of racers is too large to accommodate everyone. There are a lot of guys who have 1-2 cars, a TX and a very small parts bin, and arrive with a paper shopping bag, and others that need two large plastic bins. I've kind of settled into two Plano cases that hold smaller bins for my cars, batteries, chargers, parts and supplies, and then a separate padded bag for my TX, and I keep my ICS cables and adapters and a mini soldering iron in there too. I tried to limit it to one case, but hated being at the track when someone else's car breaks, and knowing I have the thing they need, but didn't bring it.

But yeah, in 2020, Kyosho ought to be able to come up with a better storage solution.
