did you say 250 or 25 ? cause there isnt an mini-z out there that can do 250. but i do bisiness with him and he is very good he is very responsive. but ive know about that for a long time. i have a mzm that has the lithium ion cells and an xmod with 4 lithium cells. but i like them.

250mph miniz

Regardless of how unlikely this may seem, with the right gearing, and weight distribution, I would imagine 200+mph would be possible. But a 200+mph miniz would be unrecognizable to any of us. It would take extreme modification, to chassis, body, tires, bearings, motor, and the initial drivetrain would be unreal. And where the hell would you run it? It would take a long stretch to get a steep gearing like that up to speed. The surface would have to be smooth as glass. BONNEVILLE? The easiest solution to the surface would be a 12degree metal channel to run the car inside, with a radius of perhaps 50feet? The outside rail would be laminated with teflon, to reduce friction.

I admit I find this highly unlikely, but possible, given enough time and money.

ya, im not sure you'd be able to do that, 200mph seems a bit excessive, a 100mph mini-z would be just fine for me
