Didn't you see them already?

Here are the Kyosho Mini-Zs (33 RTR the last count), along with some extra AutoScale bodies and custom bodies.
There are also two Iwavers, one Xmod, one ZZMT, MicroCycle, and a Kyosho boat.



Here are the larger "minis", as well as some larger scale R/Cs.
Includes two Kyosho Mini-Infernos, Venom Mini-Giant, Losi Mini-T, Xray M18, and so on.

Looks nice, but why not just run a 3-cell LiPo instead of 9 cells? What were temps on your Mamba-25 prior to adding the heat sink and after adding the heat sink? I've been using the Mamba-25s without heatsinks (Castle CM2080 (8000kv) & AON 4900kv with 11.1v 3-cell LiPos), but I didn't think my Mamba-25s were getting that hot though I have read a post or two about people frying their speed controls. However, I have no idea what gears they were running, but it seems like they were the same or lower than what I've been running. I guess it also a good thing that I didn't post a different view of every R/C I own--that must be why I have a gallery.

I still don't trust the LiPo as many of them are low quality built and I don't want to burn my trucks. With the heatsink on the mamba, I put it on there for just a protection in the case of motor failure. The mamba is usually just a little warm, never get very hot at all.

heres the two twins.. got the pajero today, and the nsx a few days ago. all the mods on the nsx are "used", so dont think i spent something like $400 in a few days .


pajero is stock, my first miniz, so i dont have any used hopups laying around.

nsx has about 6 stock parts. thats including the 4 wheels.

Nice. I would post pictures of my xmod, and I have a digital camera, but I dont have the software to put the pictures on the computer.

For some reason, I don't think you'll keep it stock for long.

Hey Benthehen, are you planning on putting AWD on your xmod? Cause I noticed that it had li-ions, and aluminum, but no AWD.

I had AWD in my Xmod--I removed it and it hasn't been back in since.

This is my Mini-Z Outland MITSUBISHI PAJERO 2002 PARIS-DAKAR RALLY TYPE with some alloys including the light set.
I've had this Pajero for over a year now, a lot of scratches. I'm planning to get new Hummer H2 body to replace this pajero body If I can find it.

Because I thought the Xmod ran better on my RCP Track Mini-Tile 96 without the AWD.

It's an "Overland", not an Outland. The last I knew "Outland" was a movie. And if I can get an H2 body (I actually own two H1s and one H2), I find it difficult to believe that you would have any problem finding one if you live in HK. However, you can always check MZR or eBay.

Ooop! Just a bit too tired.
Anyway from the past few months now, the mini-z H2 Hummer was sold out here in HK, then I've never seen any more of them.
Oh! I missed my chance to get one when the time it was available. Maybe I'll turn to get the Porsche Cayenne instead.

Nice Pajero. I've liked them ever since I got one in Gran Turismo 4.

eh? theres a big, fat, red diff in the front and back. also, just mentionin that i switched out the powdered-purple aluminum chassis for a modified stock one... they cant seem to get the gear mesh right on the aftermarket ones, can they.
also, busted the dang knuckle on the xmod, but hey, i guess that happens when it lands badly from 4 feet of air . yep, you go four feet high when you hit a 1.5 foot ramp at perty nice speeds.

TNB, it may not be stock for long, but i dunno if it will get all that modded either- its great so far, nothin broken other than the body mounts.

That's pretty neat looking. Myself, I'd probably just go the lazy route and purchase something like a Kyosho Blizzard.
