If you’ve never heard of a Mini-Z, or if you are just getting started and are ready to start upgrading and racing, then you’re in the right spot! Just to bring everyone up to speed, the Kyosho Mini-Z is a 1/28th scale* radio control model, which unlike most larger hobby-grade RC cars, features a highly-detailed body, known as an AutoScale (as opposed to less-detailed lexan). The cars require no more that a set of four AAA batteries for operation, though the upgrade options are endless. This section of the site will grow over time to become the definitive guide for novice users looking to purchase a Mini-Z or get started with upgrades.
*while this was the original scale, present AutoScales are advertised as being 1:27.52 scale
