Kyosho MA-015 ARR Mini-Z Chassis Set w/Citroen DS3 WRC Body
This is the Kyosho MA-015 ARR Mini-Z Chassis Set, with a Citroen DS3 WRC Body. This special Mini-Z AWD chassis kit includes a variety of popular optional parts including the “Rear Double Wishbone" (DWS) as standard. In addition to the advanced double wishbone rear suspension, the chassis is mounted with a 2.4GHz one-piece RA-23T receiver-amp unit equipped with a high value optional sensor as standard and Chase Mode to charge up the racing excitement. The combination of precision control and easy operation from the 2.4GHz system allows you to enjoy high performance almost as soon as you take it out of the box! The precision structure of this micro-size AWD machine is comparable in its sophistication to 1/10 EP touring cars. The downstop mechanism, ball-connected system on the suspension shafts, and the grease adjusted friction damper provide a wide range of setting options. Precision geometry and link configuration provide effective mechanical grip for superior control and compatibility with LL-size wheelbase body styles expands the driving experience even further! An optional gyro can be installed in the upper cover so throttle and steering control is automatically corrected to smooth the rough edges of driving, making it even easier for beginners to enjoy the fun of driving and drifting.
What is a KIT? A KIT is a higher level vehicle that included nearly everything you will need to build a rolling chassis. You will need to supply items like a transmitter and batteries for the chassis and transmitter. Required items may vary from kit to kit so please see needed to complete list for full list.
What is Chase Mode? “Chase Mode” functions to limit power output to 70% of full throttle. When the moment comes to attack, push the 3rd channel button on the transmitter to increase power output to 100% for 3 seconds burst of speed. Also, the number of power boosts can be set to apply a handicapping system to level the playing field for drivers with different experience levels. At the time of shipping, the boost function is set to a maximum of 5 times per race. (*Requires optional N.82080/ I.C.S USB adapter and PC to change handicap settings.)
