Default Kyosho Truck???

Does anyone think Kyosho will come out with a good 1/10 2WD electric truck??? only reason why i ask is with the ZX-5, and now RB-5 Kyosho is only missing one 1/10 electric offroad racer....

I hope so, not that i have anything against AE or Losi, but i would like to see something new that can compete...In the off season (winter) im planning on getting back into electric offroad, and would like to build a few kits, and if all works to plan those kits will be the ZX5, RB5 and RT5 (possible name), and be ready to hit the tracks in the spring....

on the rb-5 thread they really didnt sound like the truck will come.
and when u look at the fact they have to campaign the rb-5 the v one rrr evo wc is a bit old and the sp2 is probably due to be over hauled not to mention the reports of an updated stallion i just dont know if kyosho can do all that at once having said that they just hired losi jnr who seems to be an elec off road specialist so maybe he might develope it.
just thats a lot of cars for one company to campaign why add more?

A truck would be complimentary for Kyosho. Its not like the differences between electric truck and buggy are all that much from the designs out there that have a buggy equivalent.

I think it would be a smart selling move on there point and complete the electric 1/10 scale fleet.

Jason, you will also need to get a Kyosho 1/8 scale, then you have it all Kyosho too!

if i was a betting man (and i am) i would say kyosho would be coming out with a truck sometime in the 'near' future with the addition of losi jr to their stable, he has many years of experience and i bet it would be a good truck.

i think the RB5 would be a good platform to start with, and i hope the truck would be close to the same as the RB5 kind of like the T4/B4.......

Reading up on the Buggy version, looks like they got something good there.

Would be cool to see one of these up close. (You listening Jason!)
