it's a Brilliant car!, in my opinion it's as fast as anything else and I really enjoyed driving it no I have not owned one personally.

But yes, honestly not worth 900us.

Kyosho guys shouldn't take it personally, the cars great.

$900 = 3 Hot bodies D8's.......people will pay this for this KYO$HO car. Becuase they THINK they need it, spend your money on tires and practice fees.

Its like golf you can buy $1000 set of clubs and still have a $.10 swing. LOL

Great cars, the best and smoothest drivetrain in the industry...but pricey..
The same way people buy Go motors or OS SPEED
DX3s or M11X
no name servos or hitec 7955tg's or jr 9100's

you can set up a race kit for $1000.00 oe less or spend over $3500.00 in one
your choice, just don't complain if you can't get the higher priced equipment.

The Ford GT is a very nice sports car but will never be or beat a Ferrari Enzo or a Porsche GT, and a Kia is a Kia

exchange rates factors can come into it... over in good old GodsOwn (New Zealand for the uninitiated!) the following prices apply -

Agama $700
Losi 2.0 EU $900
MBX6 $900
808 2010 $1000
MP9 $1399

Cheers, Mike.

Hell I'll chime in with a price comparison:

Losi 8ight EU 3695 DKK
Xray 808 2010 4495 DKK
Kyosho MP9 SE 4500 DKK
Mugen Seiki MBX-6 4500 DKK

The Original MP9 can't be had over here anymore, when it was available it was 6295 DKK.

I'll leave y'all to draw your own conclusion.
