Looking at the pics, it seems like most of these rb6's loose the cap for the gear cover. FYI the tlr22 rubber cap fits great and wont fall off.
Haha I think Matesa has almost a second on geo right now. Kcar is ruling ATM.

Ok, so I am looking to get my first Kyosho buggy. I am looking at the RB6's but was wondering if there was any announcement or anything that there will be a new 2wd buggy by Kyosho. Also, how long has the RB6 been out? The last thing I want to do is buy a buggy, than a few days later see they are now selling new buggies. Thank you!

There won't be a new buggy model from kyosho for a while. I think they are planning to upgrade their entire 1/10 fleet to the aluminum style 6 series chassis. I would think a 2wd sct would be out before a new buggy.

I've heard rumors that Kyosho is debuting a 4wd prototype buggy at the upcoming pre-worlds.

You won't regret it. And just ignore anyone who complains about how much the car costs.... bottom line is how much it costs over the year and it's pretty much the same as everyone else. People just get sticker shock at the initial price.


Yeah I'll grab a 22 gear cover plug from someone to try. Honestly I may be able to get the RB5/6 gear cover easier locally LOL. Neither of our two shops carry parts for the 22 but one of them stocks almost every Kyosho part known to man. go figure LOL

FYI I use the Yokomo BMAX2 gear cover cap. Snaps on and can't take it off without tools. Perfect fit no wobbles yet will rotate. Cheers,

This is my first K buggy and I don't regret my purchase.

All the parts look top notch and I will be starting my build this weekend. I've been running the AE buggy and Durango for the past few months, so I needed something different.
