Good ways of getting us Z-heads into something new in our odd scale is ability to recycle parts and keep the bodies, so agreed. Wonder who'd bite on a brand new scale when 1/16 is small and popular enough.

oh, there are plenty of people that would love to see mini-z devolve or evolve, depending on how you look at it, into scaled down version of similar larger scale lexan car series that they already have experience with. i'm happy to see people have more options though. not my cup of tea but certainly has it's place for sure.

Can not wait for this car to be released. Would like to know an estimate of the price so I could be first in line to purchase but, I'm interested regardless. I think MRX products will revitalize 1/27th scale racing which has been slowly dying for a while now IMO.

I don't want to drift off topic but until a new chassis is faster in slower hands than the fastest guy with an old chassis they won't thrive.

Kyosho has a great formula already and it's hard to beat. In fact they are slowly adding all the things we think we need to go faster without making what we already have obsolete.

I welcome new chassis and have made purchases but I still go back to my tried and true.

pretty cool

I think this is a nice looking car little bit too busy for me.

Everyone's gonna have their opinion about it.you may like it but you might hate it.there's always going to be new technology coming in for mini Z scale.you may want to run auto scale or you may run lexan body.But It come down to our race group of how the classes coming down.

but the biggest question is.what are we doing to attract newcomers and other racers from bigger scales to come race mini z. Lets keep our hobby going. think we need to start getting big races together like it used to be.this is supposed to be a great hobby and fun

Of course this is happening now that I just ordered an Atomic AMZ! Oh well, I guess I'll just have to this one too.

If you think about it... it is actually cheaper than putting together a fully upgraded 03. It saves money in batteries since you don't have to buy and replace 5-10 packs of nimh batteries. It saves money on tuning parts as camber, toe, ride height, droop, preload, springs, and any other option is easily adjustable. A brand new ve is 230 usd plus 120 pn dbl a arm plus 40 for a v4 lcg pod plus 20 for pinions and spurs plus 35 for a ball diff plus 10 for different springs plus 12 for a metal servo gear (absolutely neccesary) plus rims and nimh chargers and dischargers (vs just a single lipo charger). I figure the savings of a regular 03 or ve over 120 dollars (in my case it would probably be more as before lipo came about I had 300 dollars invested in batteries alone). Basically you get THE complete package for less. Personally I will get it as soon as it gets out and based on the videos I have seen It has more potential than the MRX and that was a huge advantage. I would have even considered buying this at 700 dollars but at 440 it is a steal when you consider the cost of building a 10th scale tc.

1/24 scale based on the website description. entirely new class/scale.

the price doesn't scare me either considering you get the full option car minus sensored motor. i personally don't spend that much on my car setups but i know MANY that do. the full options MRX is more than this kit.

Good catch R. It looked like an awful lot to package(that cleanly) on a 1/27th chassis. Still. It will open some doors for the speed freaks to come and play. Once there are enough of them out there for their own class. We need to embrace the technology and try to make a home for them since they appear to be a well thought out "crossover" vehicle that can build it's own foundation on carpet and still be useable(with de-tuning) on the standard RCP layout's that we run on.

Great job X-Power!
