With many cool new products being released this month, including the 2.4GHz ASF System, it is a great time to pick up a free TINYRC.com Gift Certificate by writing the winning review for this months product review contest.

This thread is for posting links to your product reviews, in the Reviews section at shop.TINYRC.com, for consideration in the February Product Review Contest.

The winner for February will receive Gift Certificates worth $10 from shop.TINYRC.com. Keep in mind, these Gift Certificates can be used to purchase anything in stock at shop.TINYRC.com.

Check out the Express List which lists products as well as quantities currently in stock.

Any Reviews posted @ Reviews are eligible for consideration no matter how long ago they were posted. Please enter/link to any & all Reviews you've posted in the past.

All links posted from now until 11:59 p.m. February 29th, this being a leap year, will be entered, providing they conform to the simple contest rules posted in the Monthly Review Contest thread earlier.

here's a link to my review... (just take the first post - other posts are discussions somewhat...)
http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27597
http://shop.tinyrc.com/product.php?productid=19022

below is edited version...
just got mine... here are my initial thoughts...
2.4ghz mr02 pretty smooth in terms of steering and acceleration...

tires were sticky and when you get them dirty the car tends to spin out...

steering was way more responsive...

and i felt that acceleration is a lot more compared to the previous models... (maybe they're due to the two pairs of 3010 fets that are on the new board - although i've just learned of that through reading the forums, i really haven't opened mine to check if it is indeed true...)

detail on asc body... as usual... superb.... but after some reading and looking at some pictures, i believe that durability will seem to be an issue...

kt-18... not as bad as it looks.... programmable and quite simple once you get the hang of things... one thing i do miss though is the dual rate knob that is found on the first controller the kt-2 (i prefer using the kt-2 over the kt-5) if i remember it right the kt-5 does have a dual rate knob but it's covered up and you can't really adjust it during a race...

going into reverse seems to be another issue... sometimes it works, and sometimes, you'll just have to wait a bit till reverse kicks in... i just guess you've got to get the hang of it...

overall... i really think this is the way to go for the mini-z... kyosho did a really good job in coming up with this development..

i just can't wait for the module for the ur-1/helios and the older mars... not to mention the conversion boards for the mr02 and mr015.... and the option parts too...
