Kyosho Perfex

I just got what I think is a good deal on a Kyosho Perfex. I paid 30 bucks for it. I would like to know if the Perfex chassis is the same as the MR-01. The car runs great and has the '90 Reebok Skyline body with just a few skuffs. I'm not new mini car racing I have a number of Xmods, EVOs and Gen 1s that I race on a regular basis. Looking around I see there are a number of upgrades for the MR-01, if the chassis is the same then I will add them. Thanks for any info.

I am not really sure what you got. Do you have a picture or link or auction number or something. As far as I know a Kyosho Perfex is the stock Mini-Z. Hence the confusion...

Here's a pic of the chassis and controller:

Perfex Chassis

It says Prefex on the Controller and the two lables on the chassis, but nowhere does it say MR-01.

I hope the link works!

Yep, as Brian mentioned, you have an MR01. That's a pretty good price and can also be made to be a solid racer. Enjoy.

Wow

A MR-01 for $30 is a great deal. Congratulations. As I understood it the Prefex was the radio and the chassis was the MR-01, but I may be mistaken.

i would say you are correct, the chassis is a kyosho designated "mr-01" and the radio and steering servo/speed control (electronics) fall under the Kyosho/ KO Perfex designation.

Ya, it was a great deal!!! I been looking to get into Mini-Zs for some time, to see what all the hoopla was about. I been racing Xmods for some time, I have to admit that the MR-01 handles very well, I'm looking froward to racing the rest of the guys next week, for a true test. Now I guess I'll have to get an MR-02.
