The slop is when you're driving it straight the car intends to go off to the right/left, there's no camber/toe adjustments on this car, even if you adjust it to your radio it's still going to move right/left, at least i saw it on my friends car, i could be wrong too, but that's what i experience but it's a cool car for the price.

marvi, those car that i mention should be direct fit...

i saw this on a website that they had a list of what 1/24th model will fit...
http://www.geocities.co.jp/Playtown-...2/index-e.html

check this out, I personally dont have a Mini-Z right now, deciding whether i should buy the Mini-Z racer or the F1, but i think i will go with the Mini-Z racer...

anyway, check out the site...its very useful...altho its in japanese

I don't think i noticed it "not driving stright" I drove them at the Chicago Show, and they seamed to drive pretty nice. I never noticed any veering or anything, but it could have it.....

DCRACER,

I have not seen a totally hopped up Mini- Z but I would hazard to guess that the Micro will out perform one. The Micro is 4 wheel drive, Mini Z 2 wheel. U can easly build custom battery packs for the Micro, I am not sure about the Mini-Z. Due to it's size difference, the micro can handle a little rougher surface. But then again.. the Mini Z will be much better in small spaces. I have a 6 cell battery in my Micro, with the stock motor... and it is almost too much, so of course I now want the mod motor... I think whichever one you choose... will be an OK choice....

PS.. I would love to buy one of those new F1 mini z

Rumours I've heard from Hong Kong says Kyosho will be releasing two new bodyshells for the MiniZ in November.

1. RX-7 (FD3S) (Saw pictures of a proto-type, yellow with Red Sun stickers)
2. Honda NSX
