The car alone doesn't win you a championship, anyone who thinks that is deluded.

The car I drive is best, for ME. No it's no a K-car but I won't say which it is since that is not the subject of this thread. Someone mentioned guys getting faster swithching to Kyosho, I've seen guys get faster switching away from Kyosho. Weird huh, a 900$ should be able to drive itself around the track right.

you would think.....lol, the first truggy i had was a kyosho inferno, (user name) liked the truggy, but hard to find parts around here, pretty much the reason i sold it. really cant see anybody spending 900.00 on a rig unless it was given to them to race in the worlds

see thats, what i dont get about kyosho why do they upgrade so quicky if they just do it every other year than i think they whould make more money and parts also at lhs.

They're not nearly as bad as Xray, they "update" their car twice a year or something.

give cody a xray, or losi, or HB and give him 400+ laps on that track and he would of still won. mybe not with xray as its more for UK style tracks, they need a USA version.

what your saying is that the driver is only 30-40 percent, i used to drive the mp9, its a car of consistanty if you can drive the same line ALL the time its the car for you when its set-up to drive that line.

as for most "other" brands they tend to be a bit nicer to the not as consistant line driver,

if drake switch'd to kyosho he'd go slow as because hes so used to driving his eight with the easyer line, allowing him to change his style during a race without it throwing the car way off set-up, watching drake race, he does consistant times... but not consistant lines.
as for the kyosho being "the car to have now" thats bullSH&T, cody king could drive a brick with wheels better then anyone else. off-road has always been the driver - always will be.

there are the plain sighted things like side bite sending you into traction rolling, but that can be changed with tyres, the car in the end is set-up for each track to be driven THE SAME, sort of hard to expalin via text.

Boink! Hit the nail on the head Bro! I am no Cody King or Tebo so I cant do nothing with a $900 kit.

To bad Hara made an error it will be awsome for hot bodies to get 2 wc two years in a row.

I gotta disagree with that. There is only 1 fast line around every track and those guys hit it 9 out of 10 times. Consistently staying on the same line is what makes those guys great. Kyosho only makes great products to race. You cant argue their track record.

Second place is the first loser you either make the highest step of the podium or you're a commercial failure

it IS kyosho. They have no other option that releasing a TKI WC Ed, or whatever it'll be called. And it'll be $1000
