The combination of the highly-detailed body and a completely new 4×4 chassis design opens up new levels of performance, well beyond anything RC enthusiasts have ever seen from a mini crawler.
In the signature Jeep® Wrangler lineup, the Rubicon boasts the strongest off-road performance. With black over-fenders, front grille with dark grey accent, and the distinctive Jeep® round headlights, the formidable styling of the black hard top is immaculately reproduced in a model that rests on the palm of your hand.In 2019 the world’s most popular mini RC series, known as the Kyosho MINI-Z, celebrated more than 20 years of unmatched performance and scale realism in the hobby-grade RC category. The continuous pursuit of performance and evolution has led to the creation of a completely-new ‘MINI-Z 4×4’ design that delivers an all-new driving experience for RC fans of all stripes, with superior overall design, driving performance and high-quality injection-molded scale body construction. A significant feature of the MINI-Z 4×4 series is the greater emphasis of body detail and quality of finish that even surpasses existing benchmarks set by the MINI-Z. The body is also molded with thicker material to better resist crash damage from operation in rough terrain. Incorporating the same ladder- style frame of real 4WD vehicles, the MINI-Z 4×4 boasts a 3-link rigid axle suspension combining what would normally be two upper links into a single upper A-arm to deliver maximum suspension movement. A specially designed high-torque steering servo enables this machine to throw its elbows around in the hard terrain for excellent performance in the toughest rock-crawler conditions. The high-torque 130-size motor brings out the beast in the MINI-Z 4×4, specially geared to run well in the low to medium speed ranges common in crawling.
Designed to balance exquisite style, scale detail and superior driving performance, all the MINI-Z 4×4 needs is 8 x AAA alkaline batteries (sold separately). Enjoy driving under any conditions, from normal driving to rock crawling while appreciating the stunning visual appearance. The Kyosho Mini-Z 4×4 is the only mini crawler that delivers a full range of crawling performance in a smaller package.
The Mini-Z 4X4 uses a ladder frame design with steel vertical plates to deliver the ultimate balance of rigidity and flex for superior performance and durability.
- Solid front and rear axles feature steel tie rods and captured ends. Ring and pinion gear and other components feature metal construction for durability and consistent performance.
- Coil over shocks feature a 360 degree spring retainer that cannot be lost on the trail and keep the springs where they need to be while operating at the limits of the suspension.
- Tires and wheels are specific to each model on the Mini-Z 4X4. This model features scale reproductions of Nitto’s “Ridge Grappler” tires mounted on custom wheels.
- The gearbox features molded covers, ball bearings, and 6 pinion gears that allow a full range of adjustment according to your chosen terrain. As with all Mini-Z models the gear mesh is easily set using the provided spacers.
- A standard slipper clutch protects the drive system and features a metal shaft and primary gear for durability.
