Mini Z`s are cool,i have had quite a few,currently i only have a Lancia Stratos.
Very nice track fella,but the straight isn`t long enough for me
The main problem is batterys,if they did a rechargable one,like a lipo powered one,i`m sure there would be more interest,i know you can use rechargable AAA`s but they don`t give the punch of drycells.
Can`t fault the bodyshells but the internals need to be better IMHO
Keep at it,they are a bit ahead of thier time i think.Super Micro racing is yet to take off in the UK.

Hopefully I am sorted but will let you know otherwise.

Also interested in any tweaks etc to the car. I dont really know much about it other than they can be really rapid (once they work)

for an mr01 alot of the stuff that was available(gpm ect) was not that good,
a top shock and the kyosho H plates are a must.
polish the front kingpins
make sure you use rounded sidewall tyres on the front (atomic ar-231 £1.99 per set)to prevent grip roll as the front of the mr01 is a little narrower than the mr02


get the fets on the main board changed to the later mr02 ones,they will give you bit more power(less resistance) and wont blow as easy(i stack tham as high as 3x2 on most of our club cars)

What miniZ's do they race then? I got mine for a laugh but like I said it's not really anything like the video shown above, if it turned that quickly it'd just tip over I think. I have drift tyres and a one way in mine for a laugh.

thanks for the backup neil
just to add, not only are they cheaper than many other scales but your driving skills will improve and reaction times will be quicker by using a smaller scale than you are used to

oh and is this straight long enough for you?
im just sorting through my bits now for the motor pod clip...
