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 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 the BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM3 tires mounted on Suzuki factory replica wheels with an aluminum like finish.
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.
