The Aero Mini 4WD (Japanese: エアロミニ四駆, Earo Mini Yonku) series is a line-up of Mini 4WD cars introduced by Tamiya in December 1997. It was, unfortunately, introduced during the declines of 2nd Mini 4WD boom.

The Aero Mini 4WD series featuring the low-drag, open-wheel body design. In additions, all cars were equipped with the X type small-diameter wheels which are smaller than other small diameter wheels of the other series, allowing the cars to have even lower center-of-gravity. Featuring in the line-up is the Super X Chassis, VS Chassis and the Super XX Chassis.

The manga and anime series Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go! MAX featuring the cars from this line-up. All Mini 4WD cars featured in this line-up were designed by Tetsuhiro Koshita, the manga author of the Let's & Go! series.
