The MX-01 series is built with the attention to scale detail and quality design expected of Kyosho, and a design that allows MINI-Z fans to expand their horizons with climbing and crawling capabilities. This scale 4x4 beauty features a fine-tuned overall design, superior driving performance and high-quality injection-molded scale body and details.
Designed to balance exquisite style, scale detail and superior driving performance, all the MINI-Z 4x4 needs is eight AAA alkaline batteries (sold separately). Whether you take your MINI-Z 4x4 to your local park or just crawl across your own desktop, the Mini-Z 4x4 is a mini crawler that delivers a full range of scale crawling performance in a smaller, compact package.
PAINTED BODY: Fully pre-painted body looks like a luxury diecast car replica. The thicker body material also provides superior durability. Succeeding through a series of grueling off-road tests, this Land Rover has earned the "Defender" badge it wears proudly as a mark of its proven off-road performance. This MINI-Z 4x4 version embodies the spirit and performance of the original Defender for you to enjoy.
SCALE BODY ACCESSORIES: Featuring a healthy addition of scale accessories such as a rugged roof rack with ladder, roof mounted light bar and safari snorkel.
BODY MOUNT: A one-touch body mounting system is used instead of the mounts commonly used on all previous Mini-Z cars and trucks. The system uses spring-wire retainers to quickly and easily install and remove the body
LADDER FRAME: The Mini-Z 4x4 incorporates a ladder frame design with steel vertical plates, in combination with various molded parts, to deliver the ultimate balance of rigidity and flex for superior performance and durability
SOLID AXLES: Solid front and rear axles feature links with steel rods and captured rod ends. Ring and pinion gears, in addition to other gears and components, feature metal construction to withstand heavy loads under the toughest driving conditions
STEEL LINK & BALL END: The upper A-arms and lower links that connect the front and rear axles to the chassis, feature strong steel links and captured ball ends. This is the ideal design for strength, the maximum range of motion, and smooth operation
COIL OVER SHOCK ABSORBER: The shock absorbers feature 360-degree spring retainers, which means they can't be lost on the trail and the springs are more likely to re-seat when the suspension settles after hard impacts or operating at the extreme limits of the suspension. The spring retainers simply cannot come loose
ADJUSTABLE WHEELBASE: The 4WD system transmits drive force to the wheels from the main gear unit in the center of the chassis through the front and rear center shafts. The wheelbase can be set to either 110mm or 120mm by adjusting the length of the spacers on the upper arms (the Jeep® uses a 120mm setting)
STEERING ANGLE: The front axle features ideal Ackermann geometry. Combined with the advanced design of the axle housing and the other steering components, this model features the tightest turning radius in Mini-Z history. It means the Mini-Z 4x4 has exceptional handling capability for anything ranging from casual driving to hard-core crawling
DRAG LINK & TIE ROD: The steering servo drag link and the rugged molded tie rod are part of a steering system that delivers an incredible amount of steering angle, which results in excellent rock crawling capability
BATTERY TRAY: Located on the top-front section of the chassis to ensure good ground clearance and achieve realistic rock crawler performance
GEARBOX AND GEARS: The gearbox features molded covers and includes 6 pinion gears that allow adjustment from ultra-low gearing for steep terrain, through to high-speed gearing for smooth running on flat roads. In addition, the need for annoying backlash adjustments has been negated with the special spacer mounted on the outside of the motor
SLIPPER CLUTCH: A standard slipper clutch to protect the drive system by reducing the torque when excessive load is applied
18 FULL BALL BEARINGS: The best drive efficiency is accomplished with the included set of 18 ball bearings, factory installed to ensure the smoothest most efficient operation possible, right out of the box
130 MOTOR: The Mini-Z 4x4 features a specially-designed high-torque motor that is unique in the Mini-Z World. It's optimized for maximum torque, and it develops more power at lower speeds
SPEED CONTROLLER: The on-board electronics are also unique to the Mini-Z 4x4, with special features that improve the crawling experience. The accessory ports on top of the board allow an optional LED light set (KYOMZW429R) to be easily plugged in to enhance performance and realism
STEERING SERVO: The component steering servo features its own casing to allow enhanced performance, and it connects to the receiver/ESC with an independent connector
FHSS / KT-531P TRANSMITTER: Included KT-531P transmitter operates on FHSS 2.4GHz and features steering/throttle trim in addition to the dual-rate adjustment of steering angle and LED control functions. Control feel has improved with the adoption of the sponge steering wheel. The Gyro effect can be fine-tuned through volume adjustment .*Not compatible with conventional ASF/MHS/FHS 2.4GHz systems. Also not compatible with KO I.C.S systems
Light Unit Trim: Use to turn lights off/on when the optional light unit is installed
Steering Dual Rate: Adjust amount of steering throw
Steering wheel: Sponge grip of the steering wheel provides a comfortable fit and precision control feel
