Sorry, should have mentioned that. I'm located in Stockholm, Sweden.

That date also seems to be confirmed by kyosho.se which says "In stores 2012-09-14", which usually means that stores/resellers close to the Kyosho Sweden HQ (also located in Stockholm) can pick up their batch a day or two earlier and avoid the shipping-to-store delay.

slightly off topic but, how many 1/10th tracks/clubs do you have around stockholm .. and sweden for that matter ?

Lately, around my neck of the woods, people are using the short packs inside. It doesn't seem to matter which car they are running.

And are you seriously going to argue over the body? A few locals run the stock body and are quick. The bulldog does have better downforce tho. I would say 95% of people change the body, no matter what car it is. Body change is irrelevant. The b4.1 wc even comes with a bulldog now. I happen to run the finnisher.

It's the same as any other car. When I had the 22 I added about $60 worth of hop ups before it felt decent. My rb5wc... $4 shock tower. Ran the stock body for a month and STILL felt better than my 22.

LOL you ran your 22 with different link positions in the rear and like 90 percent rebound in one of your shocks. I remember when you started racing i worked to fix all your issues for you. LOL your a funny guy Licata....

Learn to drive and wrench before sharing your opinions. Can any one say backflips !!!

You know when you seek/read advice from rctech and wonder whom your getting it from well here is an example to ignore !!!

cul8tr bought my RB5 which has Tebos setup from the 2010 surf city classic setup on it so he should be good to go. Tebo doesnt change much on his setups and they are usually the best.

Why did they do away with the servo saver? The last two "new" buggies did away with it.

Because they are basically unnecessary with the strength of today's servos. All they do is cause inconsistent steering as the spring starts to give in the corners. Us RB5 drivers CA glue them together anyway. The "saver" today, is basically the plastic servo horn. Hit something hard enough, and the horn will typically go before the servo.
