Don't want to be pessimistic but it seems there is no servo saver. Who uses one anyway ?

I use and don┤t want to miss it. Maybe you have the option in the Kit or just buy a aftermarket Servosaver. So i don┤t think thta this wuld be a problem

I guess you've never seen a BD5 which btw just won the European Championships.

Well, Kyosho has kinda been dead from the electric on road scene. Will this car bring them back?

Discuss.
i think josh cyrul based the top car off the tf5 stallion. maybe shin revamped it with the tf6. anyway i am excited to see kyosho is back in the tc game. the model looks great. cant wait for it to be released. i hope the the price will be competitive. eg.($399 perhaps???)

This car is a real disappointment compared to other Kyosho cars in the past that have showed more innovation (ie KX-One). Really this car says nothing more than "Me Too" in comparison with all the other offerings like AE TC5, Top Photon, and Robitronic Avid which are all going for almost half the asking price of the Kyosho.

If this car is ever spotted on the track, it will be wheeled by a "sponsored driver" and nobody else.

Kyosho USA will be smart to NOT import it. Kyosho Japan always overprice their stuff.

There is store on eBay that sells kyosho from japan. I am sure you would be able to get a good deal. I bought a v1rrr evo2 from them before the car was released to the US market at great price. I wish I could remember the name of the store. I think it's called hobby japan.... But I'm not 100% sure...

Regardless of that, if Kyosho USA does not support the car then it will be a PITA getting parts for it everytime. Thats unless one of the major overseas online shops will support it but or the aftermarket like 3Racing. However, if that doesn't happen all you'll get is an expensive shelf queen.
