Kyosho Mini-Z Car Kits
Mini-Z is a a popular line of 1:27-scale electric radio-controlled cars. The wheelbase rnis nominally 94mm but can range from 86mm to 106mm. The bodies are all highly rndetailed, realistic looking, and fully painted with a high gloss paint. The bodies rnare so realistic that many are collected as display models and the bodies come rnwith a dummy chassis and wheels for display purposes. rn
The Mini-Z can be extensively modified with parts both from Kyosho Corporation rn and from aftermarket suppliers. Top speeds for a stock Mini-Z can reach 12 mph. rn A highly modified Mini-Z can actually surpass 61 mph or 99 km/h. With a moderately rn modified Mini-Z using off the shelf parts, 35 mph is achievable.However, given rn the size of the cars, its scale speed would be equivalent to 980 mph. At that rn speed, it would be impossible to negotiate corners. Most races are won with rn good cornering techniques rather than speed.
