New FWD chassis introduces front wheel drive to the MINI-Z series for the first time.
To make the MR-03 Readyset even more user-friendly and appealing to more drivers, Kyosho introduces the completely new front wheel drive chassis design in the first FWD chassis of the MINI-Z series! Widely popular body styles in highly detailed body sets create the incredibly realistic MINI-Z FWD series lineup. A newly developed transmitter delivers precise control from the optimal weight balance of the new chassis design that incorporates the proven reliability and durability of the AWD’s drive train and suspension, as well as the servo from the MR-03. In addition to the inherent straight line stability and easy steering control of front wheel drive, linear handling from the new control program on the newly designed circuit board can be further enhanced for even easier control characteristics by installing the optional gyro unit (MZW431). Including the latest Syncro KT-531P transmitter with steering trim, throttle trim, dual rate, LED control function, and sponge steering wheel for comfort fit, the car has a control feeling that loses nothing to rear wheel drive MINI-Z racers. The new MINI-Z FWD presents a new way to enjoy the performance and style only the MINI-Z can deliver!
