I m driving one, its a very good car I won a few races with it this year and will continue driving it for next season. My LHS has full support of the parts and its one of the cheapest car here (I know in some region it is one of the most expensive, I think it depends on where you are, me I m from SE Asia and its cheaper here)

They have support from LHS in south east asia, even I can get all the part to build a new car. And it is the cheapest 1/8 kit in my country.

i was told that KM in Hong Kong is getting less active in the 2nd half of the year. Having much less local races and not even committed any net year. KM has lost interest in developing the next 1/8 and 1/10, can't buy parts as before. The dealer shop can't even get parts.
It is a good car, but,.................

Good Luck!

The other source suggests that they pull out of rc industry. Office relocated to home office and factory downsized.

You shouldn't have to buy a new fuel tank, the car should come with one that works out of the box. KM couldn't get it right with the 10th scale and now the 8th scale is the same.

Pretty Quiet on the KM Front. I know the KM Group was flooding the threads with new parts, yet no technical help or info. Silvio H. and Meen V. are racing other cars now ...
