This is the first Mini-Scale build that I have ever attempted. You would think I would have done it on something that had been out for a while like a Kyosho Mini-Z Car… But being a 2 wheel fan and a Valentino Rossi fan… I couldn’t resist the chance to cut into a brand new Mini-z Moto!!!

Yes I know this is going back more than a few years but hey… I need to bring in all my builds past, present and future to this new site. This was built very early in my online RC career and was also one of my first posts that I did on BIGSQUIDRC.com . Please head on over there and give them some love and tell them RC HUB sent you!

Ohhh yeah a little more about the build I essentially I easily disassembled the stock panels but quickly found out that they did not leave any room at all to make modifications on the chassis. But like every RC fan it’s all about making it your own… let the cutting slicing (Ouch … that’s gonna leave a mark) and learning as you go. There really is no roadmap when you are venturing into uncharted territory. When this little guy came out it was the first mini sized motor cycle to offer an in wheel gyro that would actually make it driveable?

I actually own a few of them now and seeing as this is coming on the 10 year anniversary of the Yamaha YZR-M1 livery you see here, this was due for a second look. Maisto makes some decent scale models with this one I would say being slightly on the lower end as far as detail goes. So in the midst of the slicing and dicing I used some old original pieces mixed with the new body panels/accessories to bring you what you here. Every part of this was a little scary especially having to grind away some of the die-casting one piece gas tank-seat-tail section.

Hopefully you can tell from the pictures all the material that had come out. Bottom line is to get this from beginning to end took way more hours than I am willing to admit, but to be honest I wouldn’t have it any other way!
