The Iconic Kyosho Mini-Z line, now celebrating its 15th year, is getting a new model in its lineup – the MA020S. The popular “Sports” line represents a smart combination of components that deliver performance nearly identical to that of the most expensive cars, but at a much better price. The advent of the MA020S now brings AWD to the Sports line, which opens up a whole new level of performance and fun for all Mini-Z enthusiasts. 

The chassis includes VCS (Variable Camber Suspension) front suspension, which features geometry that increases camber angle as the suspension loads increase during cornering. This means the contact patch of the front tires is maximized throughout most conditions, which improves performance and consistency. A full set of 14 ball bearings are installed throughout the drivetrain and suspension, making power delivery smooth and efficient. 

The electronics, anchored by the KT-19 radio and a new combination receiver/speed control, features a plug for an optional gyro, which is extremely useful for the growing number of Mini-Z drifting fans. The gyro sensitivity is easily adjusted with an included tool – no PC link or electronic programmer is required for adjustments. 

The cars are also designed to accept an optional LED light kit (MZW429R), which even includes a flashing headlight mode, much like cars in actual drift competitions. Completing the drift motif, the car is fitted with drift tires and 20 scale red cones to mark a course so you can fine-tune your drifting skills.
