MJ Aluminum Motor Mount (LM) MZW309

Quote:
Aluminum motor mount for the MR-03LM.
High precision machined product made in Japan.
Highly balanced left-right weight distribution contributes to superior traction.
The design supports the LL (98mm) wheelbase as well. Works best with the MZW310 Inner Tube Roll Shock Set.

Inner Tube Roll Shock Set(for MZW309) MZW310

Quote:
Inner tube type roll shock set designed for the MZW309 Aluminum Motor Mount.
This inner tube shock can control the damping of roll movement independently from the pitching movement.
The damping effect can be adjusted by changing the viscosity of the grease applied.
*Must be used with the MZW309.

Are these motor pods and suspension parts not crazy expensive nowadays? Also from other brands like PN.

Yes, I find them too expensive. Much like the r246 offerings which I felt were 2x as expensive than they should be.

A quick search on Japanese only market sources, the price is roughly half that which is advertised for the global market. Unfortunately, unless you are shipping to a Japanese address or picking up locally, they are priced out of actually being able to be used.

The PN prices are still a bit high, however, are a bargain compared to the kyosho products. Lower volume production has definitely taken effect, and I also assume that tariffs now play a role in producing as well. What used to be $35-45 for a motormount is now $45-55. It is unfortunate, because i feel that this makes the mini-z less cost effective compared to alternative options in the scale. It is hard to recommend a cost effective RWD platform when 2-3x the cost of the platform would need to be spent to get it race worthy in an open upgrade class.

This is why more restricted stock classes are gaining popularity. It is really the only way for newer racers to compete without a huge cost of entry.

Lets table 1/27 scale economics for other threads . I could go on at length at what i feel contributes to this issue but not really related to new product in this calendar year.

Previous economics thread example, http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showth...ight=Economics

I recently set my mini-96 up again. I purchased the new McLaren. Man, that thing is sick! What a great looking car! When I was running that, the thought occurred to me, it would be great if Kyosho did the Corvette ZR1.....and bam, just like that here it is. Excited to get that for sure!

Thanks for sharing!

Yep, the Autoscales are awesome. The box says, for collection or for driving, it is correct :-)
Recently bought the black/red R8, it is such a nice body!

Hope some Nissan stuff will arrive soon. In the picture, under the ZR1, there is a Nissan GT-R GT3, but in bigger scale. I hope this means they have licencing ready and will release some new race GT-R's in ear future!

I don’t think licensing works that way or else we would have see the other American muscle cars introduced with the Fazer I think it is. NA would go nuts for the Challenger and Charger or Chevelle on Mini-Z.
