This is actually a pretty nice kit. I've got the rally version of this. Well put together, and should endure a lot of abuse.

It's older, discontinued probably over a year ago, and all you will be able to do with it is bash around or practice at a local nitro track, there are no race classes for it, and no other kits like it. Spare parts are still available too.

The motor is not uber strong, but decent if you have the adjustable carb.

If you're just looking for a fun kit, this would do.

Actually, There are two kits coming or now available in the states to compete in this "class". the MRC/Academy Velox XB and that new Tamiya 4wd nitro buggy ( don't know the name but have seen a review of it on various sites ).

The Velox XB is a nitro version of SB 4wd electric buggy. I am hoping in the near future a "pro" spec version of this comes out with the same deal they have going on with the Pro spec nitro 4wd truck they have now.

I think the tamiya kit looks nice. I was thinking of buying the kyosho quite along time ago, but didn't. Seemed to me like the a-arms or the hub carriers were put together kinda funny. So I passed. The new tamiya kit also has a break-away front end. It lets the a-arms break apart and come back together in a hard impact.
