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 4x4’ 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 4x4 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 4x4 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 4x4, 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 4x4 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 4x4 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
A standard slipper clutch protects the drive system and features a metal shaft and primary gear for durability.
