Heard of Mugen coming out with a new buggy since august.Not convinced.
Kyosho is still winning so that leaves the other players to release new buggies.

a Worlds kit edition or somewhat for 2012? If so then I hope we change up my local track to be more flowing and not to many jumps. . . and stuff.

I agree with what you said,and I'm not taking anything Ty did.But the small detail you let out of equation is that the D8 only started winning when Ty straped some Kyosho parts
*puts flame suit on*

Yeah, here we go.
Let's see, custom manufactured carbon shock towers, kyosho shocks, all suspension parts gathered from older discontinued model, etc etc etc etc.
It all adds up to a total cost of around $1100. Which is more than a Kyosho costs.
I just bought a Kyosho and paid 620 for it.
Meanwhile you can buy a Mugen kit for $490 on sale.

Both give you a winning car at half the price of Tessman's Franken-Wagon.

This is true, with the new chassis, the only things from the original D8 are the diffs, bulkheads, and the radio tray.
If they ever should release it to the public, it should be called something else imo.
