Double wishbone suspension is great to look at, great to drive, great to drift!
Chase Mode boosts racing excitement! Compatible with (optional) gyro!

Fully assembled chassis and a paired KT-18 pistol grip transmitter are combined into the optimal model set for those looking to start racing a MINI-Z AWD. Packaged without body, wheels and tires, you can choose your favorite style from the huge Auto Scale Collection lineup for AWD. 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 operability 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 friction damper with damping force adjusted with grease, provide a wide range of setting options. Precision geometry and link configuration realize effective mechanical grip for superior control. Compatibility with LL-size wheelbase body styles expands the driving experience even further. 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.

About the Chase mode function.

“Chase mode” functions to limit power output to 70% of full throttle. When the moment comes to attack, a push of the 3rd channel button on the transmitter increases power output to 100% for 3-second burst of speed. This enables greater driving control and also adds the excitement of overtaking duels so drivers can enjoy nose to tail racing battles. Also, the number of power boosts can be set to apply a handicapping system to level the playing field for drivers of different experience levels. At the time of shipment, the overtake function is set to a maximum of 5 times per race.
How to activate the Chase mode
At the time of shipment, the MA-015 with Chase mode is set with its standard 100% power output setting. The Chase mode is activated simply by pressing and holding down the pairing button.
How does the Chase mode Handicap System Work?
The number of 3-second Chase mode speed bursts of 100% power output that can be used is able to be limited for each race. Depending on the driver’s skill level, the number of Chase mode speed bursts can be set higher or lower, and therefore apply a handicapping system for the race. Drivers of any skill or confidence level can compete effectively and enjoy racing with this handicap system.
(Requires optional No.82080/I.C.S. USB adapter and PC to change handicap settings).
< Number of speed bursts for each Handicap Classes >
●Chase mode Legend 1 times
●Chase mode Champ 3 times
●No Handicap 5 times
●Handicap +1 6 times
●Handicap +2 7 times
●Handicap +3 8 times
●Handicap +4 9 times
●Handicap +5 10 times
●Handicap +6 15 times
●Handicap +MAX 250 times
Counting Range
The number of speed bursts in Chase mode is counted from when the chassis power is switched on until it is switched off. Each time the chassis power is switched on, the number of speed bursts enabled is reset allowing the handicap to be applied at the start of each race.

No crystals needed! 2.4GHz system blocks interference.

Using 2.4GHz frequency, the transmitter and chassis automatically lock on to open bands with the 2.4GHz ASF system. Realizes a stable environment without interference so you can have confidence in your radio system's response. Allows up to 40 cars to be raced at the same time. Simple pairing process (registering transmitter with the chassis) also enables a single transmitter to be used with multiple chassis. The next generation of proportional radio control systems starts here.
