Mr-03

Reserved for faq material
Can be fitted with all MINI-Z bodies! New suspension design takes performance to the next level! Design innovation keeps MINI-Z at the leading edge of micro motor sports.

The difference of this machine will be noticed at the very first turn. The suspension stroke and camber change work in unison in the innovative front suspension to accurately trace the road surface while the adoption of a coreless motor in the newly designed digital steering servo has the model driving like its on rails with a light touch steering feel that brings the car back smoothly into line. In addition to the same low C of G from the MR-02, the narrow body styles of the MR-015 can be fitted due to the lightweight concentrated design. In fact, the MR-03 is compatible with all body styles from the MINI-Z racer series, which is perhaps the most comprehensive tribute to automotive excellence in R/C. Combine the MR-03 with your favorite car body and you have the finest radio controlled model available in style and performance. *Optional parts maybe required when fitting some bodies to some chassis types.

Motor 130-Class

Features
VCS (Variable Camber Suspension) - Upper arms connected to king pins and knuckles with ball links allow the camber angle to change with suspension stroke, just like on a real car. Tire contact with the surface remains constant, even during chassis roll and suspension stroke from surface tracing. The newly developed digital steering servo uses a coreless motor that delivers quick steering response and sharp maneuverability that feels like its riding on rails. Also, the upper arm and one-piece cantilever provide ideal cushioned movement for the coil spring. In addition, the stainless steel king pin and wheel shaft delivers smooth movement for excellent running stability. Precision geometry settings eliminate toe in and toe out change during suspension stroke and produce a neutral steering feel. The innovative VCS (Variable Camber Suspension) represents a significant evolutionary step in the history of the MINI-Z.

Digital Steering Servo - The powerful position retention and movement of the digital servo is enhanced with the adoption of a coreless motor that provides instantaneous pick up and stopping. In addition, the newly developed steering gear unit has 3 times the gear ratio of previous versions for greater power in holding its position so it holds its line firmly in the face of kickbacks from the road surface and also delivers even more precise movement and response.

Battery Layout - Same battery layout as the MR-02 chassis achieves a low center of gravity with a main chassis width equal to the narrow MR-015.

Compatible With All ASC - The main chassis is compatible with all MINI-Z ASC (Auto Scale) ranging from MR-015, MR-02 and AWD. Pick and choose from any body in the Mini Z Auto Scale body series, there are 100's of bodies to choose from. *Special motor case and differential gear assembly maybe required to fit some body styles.

RA-22 2.4GHz Technology - Equipped with the new next generation RA-22 2.4GHz R/C unit specially designed for the MR-03. Requires no frequency bands. Simply switch power ON and enjoy safe and stable control. SF 2.4GHz system automatically scans for open frequencies and promises safer and more secure control.

Coreless Motor + New Gear Reduction Ratio - Digital steering servo features a coreless motor and a gear unit that has 3 times the gear reduction ratio of previous units for powerful movement and position retention.

Adjustable Front Tread - Can be set to either narrow or wide tread by replacing the front lower and upper plates and steering tie rod. Of course the wheelbase can still be adjusted to suit certain car types.

Endless Adjustments - Coil springs in the front suspension can be easily replaced by removing the spring stopper with just two screws. Motor mount can be easily removed and replaced to suit what ever chassis configuration you want to run from a MM, RM, HM or LM type of mount.

Powerful Performance - FET speed control amp with more than double the capacity of previous version produces extra powerful running performance.

KT-18 2.4GHz Transmitter - Newly developed 2.4GHz R/C system requires no frequency crystals and automatically scans open frequencies to use, allowing up to 40 cars to be run together. Simply switch the power on for stable control without interference. The fastest signal processing in the history of R/C results in almost instantaneous reaction to the driver's will for a more direct control feel. By pairing the transmitter to the chassis, a single transmitter can be registered and used with multiple 2.4GHz MINI-Z models. To match the latest R/C technology, a new generation LM chassis has been developed for even greater performance. *Transmitter Sold Separately Item# 82001

Expansion Connectors - The expansion connector allows optional gyro, light unit and I.C.S. interface to be connected and used.

Power Train - Rear power train utilizes the previous models, the MR-03 rear drive train is fully compatible with all the optional parts currently available for the MR-02.

Chassis Configurations

(couresty of Nanotrax)
High-Mount Motor Mount: oOn the HM chassis, the motor is mounted

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.

(couresty of Nanotrax)
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.

(couresty of Nanotrax)
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.

No crystals needed! 2.4GHz system blocks interference.
Using 2.4GHz frequency, the transmitter and chassis automatically lock on to open bands with the 2.4GHz ASF system. Realizes a stable environment without interference so you can have confidence in your radio system's response. Allows up to 40 cars to be raced at the same time. Simple pairing process (registering transmitter with the chassis) also enables a single transmitter to be used with multiple chassis. The next generation of proportional radio control systems starts here. *Set does not include R/C System.

Special Editions


MR-03W LM Chassis Set with Chase mode Red Limited Edition
No.32751(B) Chassis Set

As the new generation MINI-Z, the popular MR-03 is feature-packed with optional parts finished in a vivid red color to mark this “Red Limited” edition. Also equipped with an RA-22B/FET receiver-amp unit with Chase mode to turbo-boost the excitement of racing. When the Chase mode is activated, a power limiter restricts power output to 70% of full throttle. However, when the opportunity presents itself, push the overtake button on the 3-channel transmitter (sold separately) and output is instantaneously increased to 100% for a 3-second burst of speed. Inspired by the boost button on full-size formula racing machines, this new feature dramatically increases the intensity of racing action! Controlling the maximum speed actually allows better driving lines and supports easier control. But once the overtake button is pushed, the machine pounces on the opposition like a tiger in attack! However once you’re in front, you become the hunted. The lead can change numerous times during a race with much more overtaking, adding greater excitement to your racing. Also, the Chase mode can be set so the overtake button can only be used a certain number of times per machine (optional No.82080/I.C.S. USB adapter and PC are required). This allows you to apply a handicapping system by restricting the number of speed bursts each car can use, allowing beginners to compete on a more even footing with more experienced drivers. Of course, the new MR-03 is compatible with the stunning range of MINI-Z body styles so you can match your automotive style with the advantage of the latest MINI-Z technology (some parts may be required to fit some body types). Equipped with a range of high performance optional parts as well as the Chase mode, this model kick starts a new generation of MINI-Z racing battles.
