I think Kyosho Mini-Z Buggy is good choice for indoor races

Nice car. I just saw your post in the pancar body thread with more pics. We use the BRP wedge body (BRP BRP711 Micro-T Wedge Body) but yours looks better.

i have many kind of micros from various worldwide brand, every brand have lilbit something better than another.
but on some reason mini-z is above all.
many 3rd party part support, the most owned around earth, and many class.
there's racer 2WD, racer AWD (4WD), monster truck, suv, buggy, compact cars, even motorcycle and boats.

expensive? worth every penny i guess.

but for 4wd lover, too bad there's only 2 type: buggy and AWD chassis

any help would be great!

Thanks
An 8' x 10' track is more than enough to have a lot of fun with our new ZenWheels iPhone Controlled Micro Cars. You could actually have some competitive racing on a coffee table or kitchen table with these:

http://www.zenwheels.com

They have a really smooth throttle and steering enabling you to have precision driving fun on a small scale. There are lots of small cars out there, but I found that the smaller you go, the less control you have, so when we made these we went for superior throttle control at slow speeds. This means we don't get to do much drifiting or burnouts, but when you are driving on a tabletop, you have plenty enough speed to get into trouble and driver skill is really important. It takes some skills to drive these well, but they are certainly capable, so check em out. They are so small you can carry one in your pocket and do timed autocross laps on a restaurant table! They are quiet too so you won't be bothering the next table even! It think you might find them very amusing! At least I hope so, because we make em!

The app is free to download from the app store - search for ZenWheels and you should find it, or search for Plantraco on there, and it will come up also. You can try out all the interfaces even if you don't have the car yet, and it's easy to order the car from our website.

The losi 1/24 micros work pretty good. Here's a makeshift track I setup in the house.

and the The Kyosho dNano is rare and really expensive... but they are 1/43 scale, fast, great handling, timing system built into the car, 2.4Ghz, optional Gyro for better handling... tons of options and VERY scale


The Plantracos are less expensive, and have proportional steering and throttle, and a timing system... maybe not as scale, but they CAN be fun...

I vote for losi Micros!
I have a Micro DT and highroller, they are great if you have a carpet track since they are 2wd. And the are 1/36
I have too a Micro Rally 1/24 4wd, it handle sure better.

thanks!

That is awesome! I need to try to make something like that in my place.

So my vote is for the one I own and drive with a lot of passion. I also roll it all of the time, hence the antenna how it is:

Losi 1/36 Micro Desert Truck Review and Run in HD (8 min 38 sec)


The driving part is near the end of the video.
