Default Micro Vs. MiniZ

What you all think about these two cute little cars? Which one will you wanna buy?

Is MiniZ 2WD only? I know Micro is 4WD single belt drive.

Value-wise, MiniZ seems to be better with all the electronics.

What kinda ESC and radio are good for Micro?

i have both of them.
mini-z is RWD, and relatively cheaper than rs4 micro when u take the radio gear into account.
in HK, we have more place to race mini-z so mini-z is more popular than rs4 micro.

That's cause people don't even have the Micro in the US yet.

AE,

Sorry, I thought all the electric cars can be posted here. I didn't see a 1/10th scale only in this borad. Sorry. If you can, Move it to Other racing class if you want.

Where does it say 1/10 scale only????????

if I read it right......... it says "Touring Cars:Electric"

and the micro or the mini could run in a touring class, just in there scale size.........

How much does the MiniZ cost??

now I know that you can get a Micro from tower for $110.00
now I have all the radio gear to go in the Micro all ready.....

That is why I wait for a Micro, besides it is four wheel drive....

MiniZ cost some where around 130 to 160 depend where you buy it from. It's RTR.

I am thinking getting the Micro as well. I got extra electronics from my old TA03F.

Shoot, I'm selling them for $100 and that's not a big deal. They'll be arriving today. Skylines and Vipers. Can't wait!

Sorry, no mail order.
