Fans of modern American muscle cars have a new small-scale champion in Kyosho’s Mini-Z AWD Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Taking one of the hottest 1:1 performance cars on the road today, Kyosho has managed to shoehorn the essence of the Challenger SRT into its petite Mini-Z platform.
Utilizing its Mini-Z AWD MA-020 chassis, this all-wheel-drive R/C muscle car has been built with fun in mind. This ready-to-run (RTR) model includes a 2.4GHz Synchro KT-531P transmitter and compatible receiver and also features ball bearings and drift tires as standard items.
The beautifully crafted body features the same details and visual cues you’ll find on the full-size Challenger SRT Hellcat. Small body items such as side-view mirrors, an antenna, and a rear license plate help make this car look as stunning as possible. Kyosho has even included a yellow accent stripe on the front splitter to replicate the protective “shipping guard” that you may have seen on 1:1 Challengers.
While you don’t have the full array of color options you would with a full-size Challenger, Kyosho offers this Mini-Z model in two body colors, green and gray.
