Mini-Z is the name of a popular line of 1:27 scale electric radio controlled cars manufactured by Kyosho Corporation, a Japanese manufacturer of several radio controlled devices where the models are very detailed, realistic-looking.

Can you imagine joining Radio Control and Virtual Reality to create an immersive experience in which you can become a professional Mini-Z racer without leaving your home?

Mini-Z Virtual Reality Racing is a video game for mobiles that provides a revolutionary experience for the Mini-Z lovers and for the driving video game players: it is our commitment to unite both, and enjoy the excitement of Radio Control hobby with this new formula.

You only need a Android 6 (minimum version) phone, some VR glasses (even with the cardboard works) and one Xbox or Playstation controller. In addition, for radio control fans, if you already have your RC transmitter you will be able to live the complete experience using our device rp_USB included in the Standard Pack rewards and above. You can also acquire the rp_USB device and the RC transmitter in the Excellence Pack rewards, starting € 100 to get the most complete experience.

At Technical Racing Products we have more than 19 years of experience competing, manufacturing and distributing everything related to the world of Radio Control cars. Now we take another step and have designed a video game with which - as a Mini-Z fans - we would love to play. We carry out this crowdfunding campaign so that you, and everyone, can help us to turn it into reality. In addition, we have created different improved versions of the game, which will be unlocked depending on the amount we will get in the campaign (you can see it below in the section 'stretch goals').

The racers and champions of this RC category, such as David Moret and Uri Valdé, has tried this VR Experience and this is what they think:

  • For its playability, cause we have thought about different types of competition situations and scenarios that you could not find in real RC tracks.
  • For your confort, play from your home using your Playstation or Xbox controllers, although we advise you to live a complete experience by start making your first steps using the RC Transmitters.

What are the funds for?

The world of Radio Control has evolved over the years and new technologies allow us to create unique experiences to enter a new dimension.

Mini-Z VR Racing offers fans of this great hobby the opportunity to experience something totally complementary and innovative while we introduce the Mini-Z to the large audience of video game fans, transferring part of the emotions and sensations experienced by a pilot of Mini-Z.

We have started the production of the game and we want you to be part of it - of the creation process and to decide the outcome of this new adventure that we have created. We have shown you the first part of the game that we have developed now depends on you, that you involve yourself and collaborate to make it a reality.

Below you will find the details of how we will allocate the initial financing of € 15,000.

Creating new circuits, multiple cars and track layouts, multiplayer mode, among others, requires a much larger effort and that is why we have created the Stretch Goals, to be able to improve the game and add it with each new contributor who joins the campaign . Share this project with your amateur radio control friends and make the Multiplayer Online version possible among all!
