I think AKA will have hop up parts for the Kyosho line. I also think they might have a line of tires because I heard Pavidis is no longer with Proline. Not sure if that is true but I did hear it from someone.

I just picked up a used SP2 WC, Hopefully AKA will have some awesome parts to put on it! Or tires for that matter!

CNC steering knuckles is all Ive done to my strr, and the bce chassis. Im not saying they (strr-wc-sp2) need hop ups, but Ive seen guys toss twice as much money into after market part verses the price of their truggy or buggy.

So lets here it Ryan, whats AKA have in store for all us Kyosho folks? You can tell us, we wont say a word

Since Mark isn't running Pro-Line stuff anymore, AKA is likely a line of tires at the very least, and probably bodies, wings, air filters, etc.

Tires would be interesting. I hope they are US made. Kyosho tires from Japan are expensive! The three guys in the add are all Kyosho America guys so it may be US based stuff. It is killing me not to know what is going on. I think we should get an annoucment soon thoug, right Lutz?

Well all of this is just rumors until a formal annoucment. Here is hoping they do electric tires as well if that is what they are getting into!

I'm willing to bet you will see new buggy by the time the Worlds come around. Kyosho need to keep up with the times and offer the goodies as the other companys do or they will lose the sales.

Why would they make their new buggy under the AKA name, when they already have a well known name in Kyosho?

Thumbs up

What ever you do AKA, please make a R2 and R3 compound 1/8th buggy tire.
Mark was standing next to me on the driver stand in Texas and I asked him about this. He knows what is up!!
Good racing with you!

Let me guess it will be another Kyosho that you can't get parts for and is discontinued in a couple of years?
