The rims, tires, and bodies are the only true interchangable parts, I'm pretty sure. The X-Speed motor will "fit", but it is designed for 6V, not 3V that the palm runner uses. Kyosho does make a X-Speed especially for the palm runner.

Sorry,

The Turbos will not work with the Palm Runner either.

the palm electronics are just barely above 'radio shack quality', the turbos are not designed for the same type of electronics as the palm... different soldering points... you could make a turbo for a palm... or find a way to adapt one in some way shape or form.. but it would be better to just buy a "real" Mini-Z.

No, the palm runners aren't worth the effort.

Besides generally someone who can afford to mod their palm could afford a mini-z racer and would be better off doing so.

i suggest to go to a hobby shop that sells both and try them out... you'll find out the difference soon enough...

probably even with a turbo, the regular mini-z would outrun a palm runner...

the wheels, rims, and bodies are all that they have in common, otherwise it's night and day...

seeing as how cheap the palm runner is, does anybody buy the palm runner just for its' body? i mean, you get a drivable toy with your body and probably a bunch of screws, .....and a funny looking controller..

I do not recommend buying a Clone, but I did one time and actually was able to use quite a bit from it. The antenna wiring for one was more durable than the stock mini-z and now have it on one of my mini-z's, screws and nuts. The nuts were actually a cool gold. The body is usable and on the outside looks just like the kyosho, perhaps a cheaper plastic though. I will probably scrap the body and use the side and front body mounts. Batt clips. Nice hard tires. I threw the rest away.
