Default Kyosho Ultima RB5 Thread

Kyosho is bringing out a new competitive 2WD buggy. It has been around 6 - 7 years since they have had a 2wd buggy but probably because of the success of the ZX5, they should try the RB5

just looks like the old buggy besides the front end.please get rid of those turnbuckles and put some real ones on that dont wiegh 5lbs each.. hopefully there will be a pro version cuz this on doesnt look like it will hold up with all the plastic.

Ha ha! You must be a nitro guy. Both current 2wd buggies on the market are completely made of plastics.

Plastic is where it is at. Graphite is what breaks. It allows for more flex and thus it doesn't break as frequently as stiff graphite and such.
