1/28th Scale Mini-Z RC Cars

Update: The new Kyosho Mini-Z 4wd, photos and resources.

The latest craze to hit the hobby, fast mini rc cars and exciting micro rc cars offer racing fun at small places. Due to their small size, racing tracks can be built inside rooms and garages. And do not let the small size fool you; the fast 1/24th scale Tamiya Tamtech is capable of speeds over 20mph, without any modifications.

Mini RC Cars

Small-scale cars are not new. In the late 80’s and early 90’s Kyosho introduced the Baja bugs and Tamiya the Tamtech cars. However, probably due to the still rising popularity of the larger models, these small-scale cars did not become popular. 

Today is a different matter. Probably because of the rising costs of racing 1/8th and 1/10th scale, and the lack of places to play these cars on, the small-scale cars provide a good alternative. 

Four to six of these small cars can be raced in a garage or small street. Below is a picture of the Kyosho Mini-Z cup, where mini rc cars are raced competitively.

(Note: the ready to run version is more expensive than the plain kit version because it comes with a radio control system and speed controller. The plain kit version is only the car... you will have to provide your own radio control system and speed controller.)
