It is right about now that Atomic is due to launch on the market its new MiniZ car called the AMZ. It will be the 4×4 model with integral grip as well as a few interesting novelties that will most certainly be a delight to MiniZ fans and competitors alike.
David explains the most dazzling and relevant novelties in this video!
Kyosho has presented a series of very interesting novelties, many of them related to the world of the Mini-Z.
We have been pleasantly surprised to see that Kyosho has launched a new and more affordable Mini-Z MR03 model; ideal for newcomers to this craft.
You can check out more details on the TRP website.
The RCZ Club, located in Mataró (Barcelona) has been working on a new track designed for racing the new Kyosho MiniZ Buggy. For those of you who have had a chance to take a look at the photos published in the chat room, the track is well on its way. As far as I know, and please correct me if I´m mistaken, this will be the first RC racing club to feature this type of track with a design fit for racing this type of car. The «Presi» of the Mataró club, was already one of the precursors to the MiniZ Overland track, so we believe that this new initiative will turn out to be one of the most enjoyable for Buggy owners.
Shortly we hope to be able to provide you with the dates of the first races.
Here´s a photo illustrating the custom of using rubber tires on rcp-tracks.
With 66 names registered two categories and fearless drivers, the Italian organizers put together one of the greatest of the MiniZ events circuit. Well known drivers and also novices went shoulder to shoulder last Friday, knowing very well that an amazing week was at hand! At one o´clock in the afternoon Stock motors were handed out where there were more than 47 individuals registered, of those who took part in the qulifying legs. It must be noted that some drivers had a bit of a hard time with setting up their cars due to the high amount of grip of the Madrid track. This was primarily due to the use of rubber tires as opposed to silicone ones, which really increased the traction of the circuit, finally allowing drivers to clock times comparable to those recorded on tracks in other countries such as the United States.
We´ll fill you in shortly on the race results.
