    Version Info: This truck is delivered as "RTR", however does require 4x AAA batteries for the transmitter, and 4x AAA for the chassis purchased separately (see Requires below for details).

    The combination of the highly-detailed body and a completely new 4x4 chassis design opens up new levels of performance, well beyond anything RC enthusiasts have ever seen from a mini crawler.

    In 2019 the world's most popular mini RC series, known as the Kyosho MINI-Z, celebrated more than 20 years of unmatched performance and scale realism in the hobby-grade RC category. The continuous pursuit of performance and evolution has led to the creation of a completely-new ‘MINI-Z 4x4’ design that delivers an all-new driving experience for RC fans of all stripes, with superior overall design, driving performance and high-quality injection-molded scale body construction. A significant feature of the MINI-Z 4x4 series is the greater emphasis of body detail and quality of finish that even surpasses existing benchmarks set by the MINI-Z. The body is also molded with thicker material to better resist crash damage from operation in rough terrain. Incorporating the same ladder-style frame of real 4WD vehicles, the MINI-Z 4x4 boasts a 3-link rigid axle suspension combining what would normally be two upper links into a single upper A-arm to deliver maximum suspension movement. A specially designed high-torque steering servo enables this machine to throw its elbows around in the hard terrain for excellent performance in the toughest rock-crawler conditions. The high-torque 130-size motor brings out the beast in the MINI-Z 4x4, specially geared to run well in the low to medium speed ranges common in crawling.

    Designed to balance exquisite style, scale detail and superior driving performance, all the MINI-Z 4x4 needs is 8 x AAA alkaline batteries (sold separately). Enjoy driving under any conditions, from normal driving to rock crawling while appreciating the stunning visual appearance. The Kyosho Mini-Z 4x4 is the only mini crawler that delivers a full range of crawling performance in a smaller package.

    Your Kyosho truck is backed by Motion RC's world-renowned customer service and technical support. Drive on!
    Painted Body

    Ladder Frame

    130 Class Motor

    The Mini-Z 4x4 features a specially-designed high-torque motor that is unique in the Mini-Z World. It's optimized for maximum torque, and it develops more power at lower speeds.
    Scale Tires

    The Land Rover Defender sports scale reproduction Nitto Ridge Grappler tires from Toyo Tires.
    Coil Over Shock Absorbers

    The newly designed shock absorbers feature 360-degree spring retainers. This ensures that the spring retainers cannot come lose on the trail and will more easily reseat after hard impacts.
    Full Ball Bearings

    18 ball bearings are factory installed to ensure the smoothest operation right out of the box.
