Made in Japan is different to made in China. Actually, I guess the HB is not made in Japan then, based on it's price. Now, before you have a tanty again, I'm not saying made in China is no good, just that it is cheaper again due to labour (or labor) costs. Please get over the price thing, If you aren't gonna buy an MP9, why do you care so much?

mtbkym01..... I know that you are a diehard Kyosho fan but, I guess that the truth hurts... you need to get your self one D8 buggy because, this subject is going to linger for a while... Hot Bodies is the killer of giants

C'mon guys, this debate over car quality is such bulls$%$. Take it to another thread. You could switch cars between all of the guys in the main and they would all still be fast. My point is, a driver wins races. All of the cars in the main are good.

For 1 price is the #1 thing that drives poeple on what they buy. That spending 800.00 don't mean you have the best thing out there. Why would I switch RC8 that I have is just as good and capable as the k-car. My brother is thinking of the D8

the rc companies must be laughing at all of us rc morons
we buy expensive things we dont even know how much it is to be produced
there is no regulations saying these are good or not
now that the D8 can show it can be a world champion in the right hands maybe it will also win in the local club races
i am thinking of buying one just to see how good it is and just for $399 (as much as a good .21 engine) how can I go wrong
hopefully these >$700 cars will go down in price bec if not I will just be enjoying with my world champion D8 then spending my money with thiers
