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.
