The Furitek Kyosho Mini-Z 4x4 Folivora Brushless Power System is a great option to give your crawler extreme torque and power. The included Komodo brushless motor is mounted within the Furitek MX-01 motor mount. A Lizard Pro ESC supplies ample current to the 12-pole brushless motor. The wireless module gives you complete control over the ESC functions.

Furitek focused on providing and improved crawling experience when designing new ESC's for the scale platform.

Furitek Kyosho Mini 4x4 Folivora Brushless Power System
This product will amaze you! I am writing this after reading the other review. All you need to do is, "hobby up" and make a small notch in the stock motor retaining bracket to allow space for the wire harness, and it snaps right into place. I will be buying another one soon for my second MX-01. I will try an attach a photo. Here is a video I made, ENJOY! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQImVWqonKU

Furitek Kyosho Mini 4x4 Folivora Brushless Power System
WARNING to all buyers:

*disclaimer. The review here is NOT to claim that the Furitek electronics and / or performance do not work.

Like you, I purchased this product to upgrade my Kyosho MINI-Z 4x4 to the Folivora Brushless system. I purchased the Furitek Akashi chassis. I also purchased the Furitek Bolt servo. Included with the product is the Komodo motor and the red aluminum motor case that you are no doubt excited to buy. It looks great. We’ve all seen videos on YouTube about it. Here comes the issue:

The motor leads or terminal connected on the motor CANNOT be rotated to the side position in order for you to use the Kyosho stock motor clamp that locks the motor into place. As a customer, you have probably researched online about how to do the conversion. I did the same. Video here: https://youtu.be/PFt_eFsc2T4
BEFORE you watch that video, you must be vigilant. The video never shows how the motor was rotated into position. There is a cutaway transition and if you are not careful, you will miss it.

The motor leads CANNOT come out of the top of the motor case as they prevent the Kyosho clamp from locking into place. The motor terminal leads (ABC) are meant to be on the side in order for the Kyosho motor clamp to lock into place. Trying to force the rotation into place damages and scratches your brand new product. It also cuts into the protective wire covering. In short, the problem is fitment.

Furthermore, to your dismay, you do NOT receive any instructions from Furitek included in the product. Checking the Furitek website, you will not find any PDF or instructions on how to install the product. This path is a dead end. I repeat this path is a dead end. Almost $350 down the drain: Akashi, Bolt, Folivora System.

I have contacted Furitek by email about this issue. If the issue can be resolved, I will promptly update this review to explain.

FINALLY, this review does not mean that other Furitek products have fitment issues or performance issues. This review is STRICTLY for those who are thinking about converting their Kyosho MINI-Z 4x4 to the Furitek Folivora build. I went into this path with full confidence that Furitek is the way to go. What you want is that Komodo motor in your system, but you are about to find out the hard way that red aluminum motor case combined with the motor terminals will block the Kyosho motor clamp that is supposed to lock into place to hold the pinion in the right position.

You have been warned.
