    Zip Zap Micro RC Cars

    Are the Zip-Zaps any good? What is a good micro car that will zoom around pretty quickly on carpet and have a good battery duration for under $80? Any advice? Thanks.

    Zip Zap Micro RC Cars

    Well, zipzaps are fun but they don't work on carpet. If you have a good kitchen or table top they can be very fun. For the price of 20 bucks you can't beat them either. I don't think any of the other micro cars can give you that much bang for the buck.

    I would love it if I could get a micro truck though. Something with bigger tires and a more all terrain look.

    Zip Zap Micro RC Cars

    I tend to think they are both made in the same chinese factory along with a couple other companies, I have some on the way and the remote is exactly the same as the Radio shack cars but have a different companystamped on it, Even the motor looks just like the micro sizer. Bet it would fit right in.

    RE: Zip Zap Micro RC Cars

    I have zipzaps monster trucks.They're really great! I can run of carpet no problem what so ever. They have a climbing angle of 35 degrees. Make sure you get a upgrade motors. They're really slow stock but excellent climbers.

    RE: Zip Zap Micro RC Cars

    Yeah those zipzap monster trucks are pretty cool. I have little jumps and obstacles that my kids have races on the living room floor with, and of course i take on the winner. They were about 13 bucks when i bought them.

    Zip Zaps are pretty cool. IF any one knows how much a seperate performance motor costs, please tell me.

    RE: Zip Zap Micro RC Cars

    Dont get the zipzaps SE, I have 2 and they both broke from over usage. I think the non SE versions are more durable and longer lasting. I have the monster trucks and they are fantastic. Highly recommened. And they're pretty fast with the upgrade. I suggest micro sizers or something of the like if you want a car. ZZ monster trucks if u wanna run on carpet.

    Get a Losi Micro-T for $100. It will last much longer than Zip Zaps.

    Most hobby shops are selling the Micro T for $80, that's what I'd get. I believe my local hobby shop even sells foam tires for it!

    I personally love those little things, mind you I did use a knock off from the Sharper Image, they were fun, until the cap inside died[]

    Has anyone got the Q-steer from TOMY? Or is it the same product with a different name?

    RE: Zip Zap Micro RC Cars

    HOLY MOLY, way to resurrect an old thread. This thread's so old, I thought you'd need an old IBM PS2 computer and Prodigy to see it. I want a Kyosho Dnano, super expensive for how small they are, but packed with technology and beautiful Diecast model type of detail in the bodies.
