i have never heard of aftermarket electronics for the mini z, BUT i guess you have heard of Pro-Z. its a chassy that would allow you to use micro electronics on the mz from esc to servo's.

no after market electronics for the mz, BUT... there are people who have used micro servo's with the mz board.

here is a pic of a kawada tripmate with a mz board, but a micro servo:

There are aftermarket electronics for mini-z's, you can buy Turbo's and whatnot which give you better acceleration and top end. As far as ESC's, receivers, etc. I don't think you can.

checkout www.pro-z.com there are pictures there of his chassis which will accept hitec micro servos, spy esc. and novak xxl recievers. for the mini z

for sure turbos WILL increase acceleration and top speed. there are lots of external turbos available but the diehard hardcore racers use the internal turbos. it really performs better.

it will also be a form of short protector for the board, before anything gets overloaded, the turbo will give out first...

it certainly be cheaper for replace a turbo than replace your mz's pcb.

internal turbos (given the right stacking) will provide a better degree of protection for your board over the external ones.

the higher the stacking, the higher the capability of the PCB to power higher amp draw motors... so in a way, yes the higher stacking will give more tolerance...


... but the internal turbo's do not have their own circuit board which if overloaded will give out first before the turbo FETs...

in internal turbo's once the fets are overloaded, the FETs themselves will get fried...
