Default Kyosho Ultima RB5 Thread

Kyosho is bringing out a new competitive 2WD buggy. It has been around 6 - 7 years since they have had a 2wd buggy but probably because of the success of the ZX5, they should try the RB5

Ha ha! You must be a nitro guy. Both current 2wd buggies on the market are completely made of plastics.

Plastic is where it is at. Graphite is what breaks. It allows for more flex and thus it doesn't break as frequently as stiff graphite and such.
