you forgot the 3 words before that... "Scale Speed of"

so take 86mph and divide by its sale 12... and u get its true speed, wich is also likely an overestimate, around 7mph.

1/43 scale viper

well, i was at the Shack yesterday and it seems those zipzaps are flying off the shelves like hotcakes.

anyway one of the cashiers let me have a go with this 1/43 scale viper which recharges using the display base

http://www.radioshack.com/product.as...5Fid=60%2D4340

suprisingly the speed of this car for it's scale is impressive. it'd be worth checking out next time you go to there.

though i didn't buy it it did give me an opportunity to talk miniZ with the employees

zip zaps have a purpose

A pal bought some zip zaps for his kid, then some for himself awhile back...now he's been asking me questions about mini-Zs!

Only a matter of time, I figure...

I wanna go to to radio shack at the mall and drag race em for pink slips, maybee get that Impalla that hops. I think the PERFECT large smooth tile floor at the mall would so fast, like the tennis court salt-flats but even better. Too bad there is all the people there.

Get out the POLICE LINE DO NOT CROSS tape all the way round the food court stack the chairs away in a corner.. and BOOM mini-z haven... the over used flooring would be perfect not smooth and not just one or two bumpy scratches worn to a smooth tractiony surface... but DIRTY

But the mall by me, has CARPETING! and narrow hall ways, like a mega drag strip... and the mall is a big oval hall way if the cars had cameras it would be realy fun laps around the mall with out getting stolen, stepped on, or confiscated by security hehehe... make a funny outlaw-movie

I work in a large mall, and after closing I run my r/c cars in there

I don't own a mini-z, and wouldn't want to drive a rwd car on that surface (its tile/marble without groute lines, perfectly smooth) but my micro rs4 RIPS on it! Of course, any micro rs4 with a speed 400 (not a speed 300) and an 8 cell brick battery pack with a full set of foams will rip on tile (been clocked doing 41mph on smooth asphalt before...and that wasn't a freshly charged battery pack either)

i just sold all my zip zaps and tuning stuff and have been turned into a mini z fan now i got 2 overlands and am waiting for hop ups so the above poster was right they serve their purpose to get new blood interested in r/c cars. i used to think it was some super expensive hobby and whil not quite as cheap as a zip zap it ain't gonna bust your pocketbook ,too bad

I agree

I recently got back to RC & started with mircos, now I own 2 mini Z's & about to get another. I can't get enough of them. I have a few friends at work that laughed when they first saw my little 6 inch car until they saw it run. Now a few are getting them too.

I really like that hopping up a Mini Z is fairly inexpensive as opposed to other RC cars. Heck, you get a Readyset, Xspeed & Ball bearing set & you are flying.
