I feel like this is the Japanese rendition of the Micro-T. Great looks, great price, sure to be a hit.

it seems that the front suspension is a mere "plastic-flex"... the plastic made arm will flex... hehehe

the throttle is behave like proportional controller (can slow down, can go fast using the trigger).

I've also seen this on Japan. They cost between $35 adn $42 dollars over there. I wish Kyosho would release a "Mini-Z Inferno" that would be great!

hmm... so you mean the throttle has ''steps'' that approximate proportional throttle... and the steering isn't proportional? (i.e. full left center and full right only?)

i haven't opened up the the controller but the throttle seems to be like a potentiometer (just like hobby grade ones) but the steering still behaves like a push-botton switch (just like the takara DPL steering).
