X-POWER IDT = 1/24 Mini TC





Can you imagine what a "Palm" sized touring car look like? It is going to have majority of the unique features of an ordinary 1/10 touring car including:

1. "Belt" transmission system
2. Four wheels drive
3. Carbon plates chassis
4. Four independent damper suspension
5. Easily adjustable camber,
toe in/out and all other fine tuning features
6. Lipo powered
7. Use of Lexan shell

The most important thing is we are going to make it compatible to existing Mini-z ASF radio control system with customised designed Electronic Speed Controller, Servo and Receiver. Of course, you can use your own favourable brand radio control system if you wish. The ultimate objective of us is to let you playing this "Palm" sized touring car as if you were playing your 1/10 one. ESC is going to support both sensored and sensorless brushless motors. The size of this sensored ESC and sensored motor are the smallest in the world as far as we aware. Thus, all those functions raise like drag break, boost and turbo will be available.

Stay close to X-Power, more news will be released soon.

My first impression is this car has extremely low CG, the issue of easily traction roll for this kind of small sized car should be resolved.

No autoscales = not interested. This suits the lexan crowd fine but I got into mini-z for the autoscales, not pursuit of speed. Looks cool though and love to see innovation moving forward.

I have a great deal more curiosity about the pictured radio than I do the newest bottomless pit.

Radio looks like a Futaba 4PX.

Now that i see it in relation to something else (Futaba Radio) I think you may want to reconsider your sizing/scale...to me it looks way bigger than what could be considered 1/27. By servo size/position, battery capacity and sizing and general visual comparison to the Radio itself I'd peg it at close to 1/24.

I'm not saying thats a bad thing btw...it'd be cool to convert any number of 1/24th scale plastic model bodies to fit that chassis and if the wheel configuration is the same as an MA020 you'd have any number of offset choices to make the wheels look flush to the body.

In testing I am wondering how smooth the drivetrain stays...my thought is that a belt system would be much more likely to get gummed up by RCP dust and tire debris and then require much more setup/cleaning than your average racer is keen for.

In watching the youtube clip it does seem to perform very similar to a 1/10TC as in appears to be very full throttle/tons of drag brake-off throttle type of driving. Have you compared its roll to a standard AWD or MR03 and attempted to tune for faster corner speed?

Finally, I will say its a very fine looking micro-TC...very reminicient of an XrayT2/T3 layout. I will stay tuned for updates on responses on testing.

It appears to use the same lexan body as we use on the regular 03 I think that they just pasted the picture of the radio and of the car together at different sizes.

A side by side visual comparison with the MRX would be nice. Just for scale.
