I run kyosho because it's a better car. But i'm not a fanboi either, and call them like I see them, brand be damned.

Heck, an RB6 with the chassis taped together, is still better than a B4.









hey is that some kind of undertone your using there!lol




b4, for the win!

Testing is hard to do. Think about it for a second. The car is built for racing, not bashing, so it doesn't make sense to see how much abuse it can take and then adjust accordingly. That is my opinion alone. If that would happen the cars would be heavier, thicker, and overall built for abuse instead of racing. Unfortunately its the price we pay for wanting a pure racing car. Yes things can be improved, but that goes with everything, and I'd rather Pros test a car to make sure its good compared to average drivers who club race.

I mean no offense.

Just to help clarify here, Cantrell is a good buddy of mine... and he's harmless. And I actually think he was faster when he ran an rb5. What you have to understand about racing in my area, is that the main track is run by AE team driver scott brown, and the other is RD'd by AE team driver Luke Smith. So needless to say, I drown in an absolute SEA of B4.1's at the two tracks where I race. Id say its a good 30:1 ratio of B4s to K cars.

Guessing that has a lot to do with the lack of support & few team drivers from Kyosho ...

Myself and a handful of other guys have that same problem where we run too. However, I look at it as more of a challenge to setting up a car properly for that day. When I can finish ahead of them I feel proud of what I have done...in 17.5. Modified will come eventually as soon as I get the courage to run it.

As for Max, he too is harmless.
