I like The Micro, but i seems to have a few problems, One, the first oneway. Two teh geardiff (they could have used metal instead of plastic gears yuck!) Runing it for a month now, the motor really sucks, but other then that its a fun car.

TFR- you need non conductive ozite carpet. There are two different types. If you get the regular ozite, it will create static electricity and you'll blow speed controls right and left. Beleive me, I found out the hard way.

i think that the m3 or skyline is better looking then the viper...like...its not that detailed! but you have a really nice paint job cosmo!!

what i really think about micro and mini-z...i think that they both arent worth the money...mini-z for example...all the weight is concentrated in the rear of the car making it the king of rally cars. steering isnt as efficiant too....theres lots of lag!! the mini-z i have is really weird...it over steers one way...but understeers the other....

for the micro, it got good weight balance but then, the car flips really easily....i know you could extend the wheel base, but then...the shell doesnt fit! and theres no really a limit if your playing your car, what i mean is that...you could use 4 AAA batt...4 AA batt...a 5 cell back or 6 cell pack...obviously the one with a stronger voltage wins...so...its not that fun playing with other micros if they use different voltage. the car gives my a "not top of the line quality" too...the chassis is really roughly made. hop ups is as expensive as hell too...the front oneway is the same price as regular 1/10 oneways...

this is just my personal thoughts!! if i offended anyone, im sorry

New Micro kits due in November with Corvette or Porsche bodies.

With the Mini-Z you have to adjust the tweak on the H-bar. Once that is set correctly, the car handles GREAT. You should use a Ko Mars with the new RF-103A Tx module. That gives you total control over steering and throttle adjustments and increases the range greatly. The car is a blast to drive now!

My main complaint about the Mini-Z is the lack of brakes. The immediate reverse totally screws up my driving. This has been addressed with the new PIC code in the Mini-Z F1. The esc now responds with brakes the first time you hit it, then reverses ONLY if you return to neutral and hit it a second time. I hope that Kyosho somehow releases an upgrade.
