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

I was curious if anyone has reccomendations for indoor micro R/C cars. I am looking to race indoors in my basement on a say 8x10' track. I bought some used micro-T's to do this but I quickly got so annoyed with them I sold them. They are a pain to work on and the Differentials are really weak, they break rather easily.

any help would be great!

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:

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.

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:

The driving part is near the end of the video.

Sinohobby Mini Q3

Hey there, I found a really great little micro touring car. If your track is suitable for on road vehicles then this is the car for you. It's the Sinohobby Mini Q3. It's 1/28 scale and super fast but very stable and controllable. I've ordered mine from Banggood. Really good value for money. It's got carbon fibre chassis and all the customisable parts that a 1/10 touring car has. I'll be reviewing it on my youtube channel soon when it arrives. Here's the link to my channel in the meantime.
Be sure to check it out.

I own a 1/24 Losi Micro SCT. Quite slow RTR but with a 240mah 7.4v 2s Lipo its super fun. Never regretted buying it and its plenty fast with the lipo. Here is a video from my youtube channel:
