Apparently they are very fast!

I am going to get a number sent over from Japan in a couple of weeks.

Does anyone own one of these yet? I am thinking of getting one or two for racing the living room. It depends on price too. If they cost more than a Mini-Z, I may have to think about it.

Also are these the same size as those Epoch Indoor Racers back in 2000 or 2001?

I have one (i bought it at the kyosho store on Ometesando in Tokyo). It s the Mazada 787 version..

First it s just as fast as anything out there.. it runs like a regular mini-z except it s half the size

THe package is very complete, the radio is by no means a toy as it s full 2.4ghz, just as proportional as a m8, every car has a unique transponder ID on the bottom that acts like a mini transponder to track lap times on a properly equipped track.

It is powered by a mini lipo battery that you charge with a small AA-powered charger.

Body is very durable (although the wing is a tad fragile...but that s whay you get from running a scale-look model).

There are many options coming from kyosho, such as a gyroscope to "calm" the car.

Overall it s not cheap, more like 240 USD for radio,car,charger, battery and chassis of your choice... but it s much much more high tech than a regular MZ. It s like a Mini-z for upper income adults.... its definitely not a toy and i would not let my kid near it...

But it s perfectly raceable, PERFCT scale look (the wheels are amazing), handles very well.. like a regular MZ, and it s FAST ! and quality is top notch... with of course the slew of options to be expected from Kyosho

Let me know if you want more info..

Thanks. Took a bunch of work to get them right but the CAD is all correct now and I am awaiting production quotes. CLick that pic to see bigger and more photos on my site.

Hey rcjunkie3000. I think I know who you are and I know we race together offroad NorCal. I have _obviously_ been doing the dNano thing for a little bit. Feel free to holler at me for any questions.
