I was watching Mark Pavidis run the new Kyosho two wheel. It looks like a XXX buggy cornering and has B4 steering.

Titles or not, hopefully Mark Pavidis can convince Kyosho to leave this buggy on the market for more than 2yrs. Kyosho tends to bring something out then discontinue it, or bring out a completely new model. Innovation is spured by competition, and we need more manufactures to make good "pro" race buggies. There are lots of "basher" buggies made by Traxxas, Sportwerks, Tamiya, and Duratrax, but not as many choices through out the years for other, different competition buggies. B4 and XXX have been on top for years, its nice to see different cars out there

There are plenty of junk buggies but nothing to be competitive like Losi Or Associated. That would be nice if Kyosho's buggy be competitve once they work the bugs out.

Yesterday, I saw the Kyosho buggy in the hands of a very good driver and it's definitely going to take some market share from AE and Losi, especially if Kyosho drivers manage to win some big races. Maybe this will breathe a little new life into the class.

(I don't don't want to talk about the fact that this sponsored guy, who was still working the kinks out of his brand new car, managed to lap my B4 every heat. Kynoshow!!! )

both are good cars just the losi you might have to work on a little more to get it to work for each different track. the b4 only use one basic setup on most tracks. also the cr is alot better than the bk2,so going from the bk2 to the b4 would seem better.
