From where I am, I am guessing it would take a week to get here. So Kyosho is correct in that it was scheduled for August 2012, at least in Japan?

Pre-ordered with Champ. They've been a bit slow on comms the last week though so have just dropped a note to Pro Shop Futaba as well. See what they say.

Would be surprised (happily!) if it's in.

Wow! Nice looking buggy. Love the aluminum chassis. I think it's neat how some of the 1/8th-ish stuff is trickling into the 1/10th. With the LiPos and the brushless, these cars can use a bit of weight...

Pro Shop Futaba say they will have it in stock next week. I therefore doubt there are any retail kits in the US at this time. I suspect any kits in the US now will be for factory drivers.

I pre-ordered one from "www.thekyoshostore.com" weeks ago and it was to be in stock with them today. Just checked and it still says that it is on order and to be in stock on today's date. I sure hope this is true. Hopefully, with one kit showing here below, that means some places are getting them. At least overseas. Anyone else order one from here?

Decals are nicer than RB5. At least you don't get the asymmetry left side and right side, with the huge 'RB5' that comes after the small 'Ultima'
