Mr-02



A new generation Mini-Z chassis shows new running style and scale form.

As the world of micro racing has spread around the globe, the MR-02 chassis promises even more scale variety. With its concentrated mass and ultralow chassis height, the low center of gravity and intense compact nature of the MR-02 give it the Mini-Zs highest performance specifications. Even more running performance potential has been added, and the components combine easily to produce an even higher-level result. Add the MM-type and LM-type mid-ship motor mounts to the RM-type rear motor mount for a three-version line-up. In response to various wheelbase and overhang differences, a wide range of body styles can be developed to accelerate the level of fun and appreciation in building your own collection. With even more Mini-Z sophistication than the original Mini-Z, the MR-02 chassis can show the real enjoyment of micro motor sports like no other.

Chassis Technical Data

Length 125~133mm
Width 68~76mm
Ground Clearance 4mm
Wheelbase 86~102mm
Tread (F/R) 59~65mm
Tire Size (F/R) 258.5~11mm
Gear Ratio 7.3, 6.3, 5.5, 4.9 : 1
Weight (approx.) 130g
Battery(notincl.) AAA-Size x 4
Motor(incl.) 130 Type

Features

Simplicity makes maintenance easy. Uses kingpin coil-type front suspension. Optimum structural geometry realizes mild control characteristics. Due to the snap-lock system, the kingpin, coil spring and tie-rod can be installed or taken out by simply removing a C-ring. This makes maintenance and tuning easy.

Compact chassis is packed full of sophisticated components. High frequency FET speed control amp with reverse and brake function, rear damper, servo saver, and gear guard are all included as standard features. Lower CG and lower chassis height with concentrated mass in the center all result from the parallel layout of the battery mounts. The chassis bottom layout produces greatly improved racing performance.

The swing-type T-bar rear suspension produces excellent road holding. On various indoor surfaces, free traction control and tail control are possible.

Chassis Configurations

MM chassis/ Mid-ship Motor Mount: On the MM chassis, the motor is mounted mid-ships directly in front of the rear axle. Mass is concentrated in the center and produces good agility and a shorter rear overhang.

RM chassis/ Rear Motor Mount: On the RM chassis, the motor is mounted behind the rear axle. Positioning the C of G at the rear produces high levels of traction. This makes tail control all the more interesting. RML chassis omits the top damper to generate lower chassis height for the RM chassis.

LM chassis/ Mid-shop Low Motor Mount: Latest chassis design is the fastest MINI-Z Racer ever. With the motor mounted 5.5mm lower on the 3L size long wheelbase chassis (compared to the MM motor case), the motor can be positioned much closer to the lateral center. The stability of the chassis has dramatically improved with small diameter wheels, newly designed front knuckles, a 1mm lower chassis and a friction damper now standard.

Electronics Configurations

Standard AM radio system combines the receiver and speed control for efficient running and precise control. New RA-4B FETs allow better power handling.

(No picture) i-Series: Receiver with efficient FET speed controller allows precise run times. The removal of reverse feature makes the i-Series even more competitive on price.

(No picture) AD Band: Special FM radio system provides excellent signal stability and digital servo control. The unit is fitted with I.C.S. that uses graphical representation for precision servo and motor control amp settings through a computer. AD Band MR-02 (RA-6 I.C.S) receives special yellow plastic on the chassis.


The latest ASF 2.4GHz unit delivers the amazing experience of micro motor racing. Fastest signal processing speed available produces a truly direct control feel. FET with double the capacity of previous models also features LED that indicates power status when power is switched ON. The ASF 2.4GHz unit is also fitted with I.C.S. that allows servo and motor control settings through a computer.
