It took me a little while but I worked my way through traffic into the number 2 spot . We ran that way for a while but unfortunately my glow plug did not want to race anymore . Even though I flammed with almost 2 minutes to go I still finished 3rd in the B and Rob had checked out to win the B . He went on to the A and had a very consistant run and in the end he finished a strong second . I was extremely impressed on how durable these cars are . This track had some very rough bumps and jumps and the cars held up very well . My SX8 has had roughly 4 gallons run through it and all that has broken so far is a rear outer tie rod end . I am very pleased with the performance and durability of this car .
The makers of the SX8 (nanda racing) are very commited to top quality parts thats why the SX8 is so strong and durable .

Like ive said many times before i have been to the factory and its wow believe me .

They are so commited to top quality products that basically i believe the SX8/nrb-3 is the best buggy in quality and geometry on the market today .Im sure alot of you would agree that the sx8 is a pleasure and an ease to build snap fit right ??

As an engineer im a true believer that if it works why change it thats why i admire kyosho so much .you need a buggy that has racing geometry with lots of steering that anyone can drive not a buggy that is twichy that only the big names can drive.

well anyway im glad you guys are enjoying the buggy .

regards Angelo

Default SX8T

We have started testing the protos,Tony will be giving the factory feed back and I feel the truck will be ready for market within the next 60 days.

Racers if you would like to see the buggy up close Billy and Tony will be at the Manufactures Cup and I will also have drivers at the Rc Driver race at Rc Madness.

We will also have driver Brian Kadow in the southeast region this weekend.

If your talking about the nitro pit, paul coleman was racing one there months ago. It worked awsome of course.
