The other new buggy is EZ series 'Nexxt' 2wd. Comes as ready set, kit or combo set.

Found them in a local RC magazine so it's public information I suppose.

(hope the image shows up)

Must be a non-US release - I've never heard of the thing, or that other buggy on the page that was posted.

This may be a dumb question, but isn't the RB6's wheel base longer than then RB5's by 15mm and not 13mm? Kyosho website says the RB5's wheel base is 270mm and the RB6's at 285mm. I believe 285 minus 270 is 15, unless my elementary math teachers had be teaching me something weird.

That is the wheel base. The chassis is 13mm longer than the current one for the RB5.
