The Land Rover Defender has been Britain’s flag bearer in cross country cars for more than 60 years. To mark the final production of the series in 2016, the limited release Heritage Edition embodied the Defender’s rugged spirit and unmistakable shape.
The Kyosho MINI-Z 4×4 adopts similar mechanism commonly used in 1:10-scale off-road models in its small chassis. In addition to its crawling performance, the highly-detailed body is one of the key features of this model.
The long-awaited Land Rover Defender 90 Heritage Edition and Autobiography Edition are finally added to the Kyosho’s MINI-Z 4×4 line. Fully pre-painted body looks like a luxury diecast car replica. The thicker body material also provides superior durability.
The signature seven slot front grille of the Land Rover has been reproduced in immaculate detail, including back mesh netting. Original cut design of the headlight lenses, indicators and tail lights are reproduced as clear parts so you can incorporate the optional LED lights to enjoy an ultra-realistic car experience.
The Mini-Z 4×4 incorporates a ladder frame design with steel vertical plates, in combination with various molded parts, to deliver the ultimate balance of of rigidity and flex for superior performance and durability.
Solid front and rear axles feature links with steel rods and captured rod ends. Ring and pinion gears, in addition to other gears and components, feature metal construction to withstand the heavy loads under the toughest driving conditions.
The upper A-arms and lower links that connect the front and rear axles to the chassis, feature strong steel links and captured ball ends. This is the ideal design for strength, maximum range of motion, and smooth operation.
The newly designed shock absorbers feature 360-degree spring retainers, which means they can’t be lost on the trail and the springs are more likely to re-seat when the suspension settles after hard impacts or operating at the extreme limits of the suspension. The spring retainers simply cannot come loose.
