Post Kyosho Mini-Z

It seems these little cars are pretty popular, so I thought to start a thread about them. Post whatever you want about these cars.

Check out my custom chassis that is still being designed:

yeah I figured that out yesterday My design doesnt really work anyways, and its not even in "production" yet. I kinda figured that someone had already done it, becuase it was a simple idea. Anywho, i gotta buy a new motor now, cuz I took my stock one apart to clean it , lets just i did a little more than cleaning it.

How does your pro-z run? Is it faster than stock?

My stock motor is TONS slower than when I first had it, the brushes are almost GONE, and the commutator is almost PURE black!!! I have had this car for almost 2 years now!!!

I have put a new antenna on the car, soldered the motor wires directly to the ESC, and one suspension mod so far, otherwise it is STOCK. Now I am looking into racing on carpet. But i cant decide whether to buy a new stock motor, or buy a X-Speed motor. Im sure I can handle the speed of the x-speed.

But I am wondering if the other guys who have STOCK mini-z's be able to keep up with me? I only have a few guys to race with, so they are the only guys I can race with!


Thanks guys
