A mini 4WD is any miniature model within the mini scale of between 1/20 (1 :20) to 1/48 (1 :48) scale. Currently, in 2014, the term is popularized predominately by a 1/32 (1 :32) scaled, AA battery powered plastic model race car without remote control. All four (4) wheels are direct-drive, thus "4WD" for 4-wheel drive, as opposed to "A WD" or All-wheel drive. Horizontal side rollers guide the vehicle against the vertical walls of the un-banked track for steering, providing very fast speeds up to 65 km/H ( 40 mph) on the track. In Japan, Mini 4WD is also known as mini yonku in Japanese. The Mini 4WD lap timer is used to measure the time taken to finish a lap. It is mainly use by Mini 4WD hobbyists to measure the time taken by their mini 4wd to complete each lap in racing competition.
