Cool There's a new Micro in town

Speedworld got it's first batch of prototype Micro's and they are saweet! Billy & I only got to run one for about 10 minutes at the Sorex Micro Carpet track ....but that's all it took to hook me on yet another Micro class (it's sitting here at home waiting for my idea on increasing voltage ). More info on it here: http://www.speedworldraceway.com/Page.cfm?InfoID=1804 , we'll also keep ya'll updated on progress.

BigDogRacing ...yea it is pretty cool, not sure on cost yet all we have are a few prototypes to bash and test. Definitely a whole different class than the HPI Micro, size and limitations of where the motor goes and how it's built (the shaft goes through the motor) are going to limit how much horsepower we can strap onto it, but from what I can tell so far it will be a nice additional class especially for small to mid size tracks. ...I'm getting one, actually already have an HPI Micro, just gotta talk Dennis into it as well

the mini z comes with a pistol type controller, all you need are batteries and a charger. itll only accept AAA batteries. it is rear wheel drive and it's body is made of hard plastic.

the micro is similar to most 1/10 rc cars. youll have to get the rest of the equipment to keep it going. standard electronics will fit. youll need a steering servo, esc, transmitter and receiver, batteries, and charger. the chassis accepts both AA and AAA batteries. i think there are assembled battery packs available for the micro. it is belt driven 4-wheel drive and has a lexan body. im not sure about the scale of both cars but the micro is a bit bigger than the mini z.

in our lhs, the mini z is cheaper than the micro but if you already have the needed electronics lying around, then you can get the micro and just install them in it.

marvi is right about mini-z vs. HPI Micro ...the Xpress is like the mini-z in that it includes all electronics and a pistol grip radio all you need are 4 - AAA rechargeable bats for the car and 6 - AA bats for the radio. The Xpress is the car I included the link for, it is 4 wheel drive shaft driven 1/24th scale (mini-z is 1 /28th scale Micro is 1/18th scale)
