Exciting to see commercially available options to Kyosho but not a fan of lexan bodies in general. I love our scale for the detailed scale.

The TZ4 AWD mini touring car is a mini size RC car with a Big guy attitude…The new Touring MINI-Q chassis has all the features of its bigger 1/10 scale brother from tunable suspension and chassis set up to swappable Lexan bodies and adjustable wheelbase.
so the kit is called TZ4 utilizing a Mini-Q chassis? TZ4=Mini-Z, Mini-Q=chassis type? need to know how to properly categorize this.

since the video hobbyking/ Turnigy have changed name to TZ4 maybe because factory had released product already under mini Q
We can clearly see use's mini z wheels wonder which awd or 2wd?

In one of the pics you can see on the side a mini-z type body clip notch. I would imagine the posts are removeable.

I'd say based on the center screw and ?washer/bearing? that they're using 2wd style mini z rims.

Yea, I'm pleased to see the side posts there, but I haven't had a good look at how the front nose clip will be installed.

I'm more convinced that AWD rims are being used. There are more pictures from HobbyKing's site taken from different angles, you can get a better look at some of the parts and it appears as though AWD-style knuckles are also used, which would lead me to presume some compatibility with AWD swing shafts and differentials. My only remaining concern is the servo dimensions and spline size. We're used to having super fast steering and the only (reasonably-priced) micro servo I have come across so far with an adequate speed is the Corona CS/DS-919MG which is already on the larger side, I use the 929 version in a 1:18 truck.

xmodcanuck I guess you might have noticed I've been absent from meets lately - I've been busy and kind of getting out of (larger scale) RC, but the Z are here to stay and I'm really excited for this TZ-4 and the Atomic chassis. For $60 I'm definitely getting one once they are restocked at HobbyKing. This IMO is what this scale needs that $200+ aftermarket chassis have been unable to become widespread.

I have a FlySky module from a TH9X radio. Just have to rig up an adapter to use it in my EX-1UR and I should be golden!
