I order 3 from them and all 3 sucked big time. I only used them once, since I was so disapointed. All 3 had different problems. Problems included bad range, bad speed and torque, lights were inconsistent and all of the them had bad steering. Save your money for the new Super Bits Lambo or Ferrari sets instead.

So are these not even worth trying? I was wondering if any mods for the other micros would fix their problems...

Making bodies

If you're interested, I'm about to make custom bodies, by request for the following cars:

2004 Ferrari Enzo
2004 Mini Cooper
1977 Classic Mini
1997 Dodge Viper GTS
1951 Merc
1956 Ford pickup
1937 Chev
1949 Merc
1948 Woody
1957 Chev
Any requests?

These will either be clear bodies for painting or I can make them in other colours if requested. They will be made on of polyester resin or a urethane resin (both hard plastics).

I'll initially be making them for ZipZaps but if there is enough demand for BCG scale bodies, I'll do them too.

Let me know if you're interested.

J

mini-z custom bodies

What scale is a mini-z? Is it also a 1/64 scale car similar to a bit or a zap? I'm in Canada and I've never seen them for sale here.

The things that are important is to know the measurements for the slots at the front and back (I'm assuming the mini-z bodies connect the same as bits or zaps?). I'd also need to know how much clearance you need for the pcb cover (again assuming mini-zs are like bits).

Anyhow, if there are pics around so I can get an idea of what they look like, or if you could provide the measurements I need, I'm sure I can make them.

You should do a late 60's early 70's caddy I know of of at 200 people that would go crazy buying them!
