Iíve never run in carpet with my MiniZ. I use Kyosho radials at home. I was just moving to slicks with my race group when racing got put on hold due to current situation.

Default Pn side dampeners

What kind of springs are people using on their PN side dampeners? The stock ones seem a bit stiff and kenon doesn't have any specific ones for them.

Its definitely more popular. Are there any MiniZ or small scale clubs in your area? Our OpenGT class allows them now. That class is currently all GL racing. Iím hoping to run my Evo12000 in it. But Iím currently not fast enuff to run in it. We had a couple running the GL racing AWD.


someday Iíll finish my Atomic

What was to be short break, after dropping and somehow finding the smallest screws Iíve ever seen. Year later still havenít gone back to it.

Tbh i live in a country u probably never heard of.(Turkey) i have few ppl arround me playing rcs.But because of the currency rates in my country, i have literally no1 playing mini-Z. Because its really really expensive for us, make the price x7 and its our price. Me and my wife will be the only one driving these cars. So what do you say we get 1awd and 1rwd or both rwd?

Imo opinion variety is more fun. So for me, it would be rwd and awd. When you get bored you can do some drifting with the awd one. The one downside is you wont have 2 of the same thing so sometimes troubleshooting and swapping parts from one to another to test can’t be done

Of course weíve heard of Turkey. Had friend from grade school through high school from there. Could give a list of place there Iíd love to see.

As the previous post said. Having a variety is great. Iím running FWD and Rear wheel. And Iíve got 5 different RWD.

The Futaba 7 is expensive here in States. Hate to guess how much for you. There is another Futaba option, canít recall the model number.

Having two identical makes racing even. But could always trade off cars. Plus since you did mention drift. AWD will give you that option. RWD wonít.

Futaba 4PM and 7PX I believe work work the Mini Z module. There is a version of the 4PM that comes with Mini Z receivers modules.

Pretty sure I use these. You just have to order 2 sets, since it comes with one in each rate. PN Racing Mini-Z Center Shock Spring Set (7pcs)

For battery removal, the battery clips can be inserted into the openings on the bottom of the chassis to dislodge them easily.

red tool was said to be a binding stick, but it doesn't really make sense. Bearing tool would make more sense. I haven't seen one in person, do you know the diameter of the tip? If it's 6mm, then good change it is to press the axle carrier in place in the mount. 3mm tip would be appropriate for the rear bearings.
