Mini-Z "Monster" Buggy - Another Way of Doing it

I did this in another way:
  1. Fit standard awd rims to the buggy.
  2. On those rims put overland tires.
  3. Now put the monster rim over the oveland tire.
  4. It will secure itself due to the friction.

I've tested this and even at high speed turns it cannot remove the the monster wheel from the overland tire. It stays in place. Cheap and Effective :)

Great tip from your Reader:  Mike De Groote

Does Anyone Knows if this Porsche "Blue Fin" Exists?

I've only been able to find pictures of the Porsche 962 at the TOP (w/ the blue side aerofoil). The model below (w/ white side aerofoil) exists and I have one, model # MZX322PR. Does anyone know if the Porsche "Blue Fin" exists or if it just a prototype that Kyosho used to release the first pictures ?!? Thanks in advance for all comments!

61% of our Readers want a Cheaper Mini-Z!

Recently, we asked our readers what would take to make Mini-Z even more popular, the vast majority answered: a cheaper Car! IMHO a MR-02 EX, which is a great entry level car, should not cost more than $100 (w/transmitter). Another item that has been getting more and more expensive through the years is the Autoscale Bodies, costing as much as $50!! when they should not cost more than $30.

All across the Internet, we see discussions on Mini-Z Forums about this subject and everyday, more people is getting away from the Mini-Z because they simply cannot justify its cost when comparing w/ some larger scale cars. It is sad to see so many Mini-Z Collectors selling their collections on ebay, because they simply cannot keep up w/ the actual price increase to maintain their collections up to date.

Let's hope Kyosho is seeing this :-)
