Mini-Z 4x4 Readyset & Belt Crawler Kit Catappi Combo
The combination of the highly-detailed body and a completely new 4x4 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 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.
If you want to run the MINI-Z 4X4 on any road surface, this is it! The rugged coolness is also improved by attaching the catappi!
***This product requires assembly (approx 1.5hr per pair)***
By replacing the tires that are installed as standard on the MINI-Z 4x4 with the "Belt Crawler Unit Catappi", the field of play will be overwhelmingly expanded. The belt has a full-scale structure that connects high-precision molded shoes with stainless steel pins. The belt itself does not stretch very much, preventing the belt from coming off while driving. In addition, the mechanism that the unit itself swings improves the ability to overcome large steps and follow various rough roads. Comes with a soft material "grip plate" and sharp "spike parts". By installing these, the road surface that can be driven will be further expanded. Since the sprocket diameter is 24 mm compared to the standard tire diameter of 37/42 mm, it becomes a lower geared and can be tenaciously cleared even in rocky areas with extremely high slopes. After assembling the belt crawler unit, it can be changed as if changing tires. Two sets are required to replace the four wheels.
- After assembly, it can be installed with a single screw (assembly KIT)
- Compatible with road surface types that cannot be driven with tires
- Flexible control of the rotation of the unit itself
- Design that makes it difficult for the belt to come off
