Kyosho Mini-Z Buggy MB-010
by Mini-Z

The Kyosho Mini-Z Buggy (MB-010) is not the first Mini-Z to go off-road - but it is by far the most exciting! Unlike its predecessors, the Overland (MV-01) and Monster (MM-01), the MB-010 builds on the 4WD technology of the MA-010 for amazing off-road prowess akin to that of its 10th scale brethren.

Gear mesh issue?: Hello, I am a new user on this forum but have been collecting and racing mini-z's for awhile now. I recently purchased the ASF buggy and put a 48t atomic ball bearing standard motor in it. After a few minutes of running it at half throttle the motor was getting very hot (110 degrees). I noticed...

MB-010S motor upgrade: I just got one of the Inferno Sports buggies. I have to say it is so slow, much worse than I expected and a lot slower than the on-road Mini-Z cars I have owned and driven before. Definitely need more speed but unclear about exactly what is needed to achieve this reliably. There's plenty of talk...

Anyone tried to run on a 1/10th scale off road track?: Anyone tried to run in one of these? I have a VE and these things handle and jump incredibly well. I don't think we would loose too much in straight line speed because most buggy tracks are pretty tight and we wouldn't have to slow down for the corners at all. There is a indoor off road track...

Hex size on ball studs for tie rods?: Anyone know the hex size for the ball studs on the tie rods and front knuckles? None of my current tools are small enough to remove them. I have alloy knuckles and tie rods that I really want to install :(

New LED Lights: Spent a little time wiring up for my transponder, so I figured I might as well as wire it up for some LED's. They are actually pretty bright and was able to race it in total darkness. Image: http://i63.tinypic.com/zmy0hx.jpg Image: http://i67.tinypic.com/23tnuvc.jpg Image:...

Ve chassis vs 50th anniversary.: Looking to get a buggy and I am not sure which one is better. I want brushless power and efficiency, but kyosho has no info on whether is comes with universals or chassis protection plate, or ball diffs. The 50th anniversary has all of those plus aluminum heat sink and a x speed motor. In terms of...

Where can I hook up my transponder?: I bought a new sport version buggy and there isn't a port that has constant 4.8v power like the non sport buggy. Really frustrating that they went backwards instead of forward with the quality of this buggy..

MB-010 vs MB-010S: My apologies if this is a dumb question :o I bought my Comic racer a few years back, which is on the MB-010 (well technically MB-011) chassis, and I'm now looking to buy a 'regular' buggy. But in all (local) shops they seem to only have the MB-010S chassis version of the buggy, so I am wondering...

Alum OEM Tie Rod Bind & Tweak?: Hey Guys --- I broke out my Buggy the other day & noticed the left turn has a much wider radius than the right on full throttle. The right turn is MUCH tighter .... almost donuts Is this a characteristic of the AWD set up ? or are there screws I should be loosening, shimming etc. ? I made sure...

Has anybody fit the Li-Fe batteries in the buggy chassis?: Curious if anybody has fit either the ProTek or R246 2x 3.3 Li-Fe batteries in the buggy chassis. What type of chassis modification is going to be required? If anybody has any info or pics to share - please do! Thanks!
