This is a good time to start a dedicated FS thread. The Kyosho electric thread is well over 200 pages long now and the FS buggy appears quite different compared to the original ZX-5 and SP versions, therefore, worthy of its own thread.

I just ordered the conversion kit from speedtechrc, so I didn't want to dig through the old thread trying to find info on the new FS.

Hey chief they offer the SP too, I have owned the SP and the FS now. Both great cars and the FS is alittle better for rough tracks. SP seems better on tight tracks with it's shorter chassis.

who else offer both options in 2 competitve sister packages ?

nope a regular servo will fit.i use airtronics 359's. fits just fine.


and just a note.if you dont want to raise the body or battery posts to fit lipo saddle packs,you can just take the battery straps and sand them done to fit and hold the battery in place.i sanded mine to the mold lines on the sides and left enough on the ends to hold the battery in place.this works awsome.and the batteries dont move!!and with out any other mods.just a note i use SMS 4900,s

Default Shops carrying Kyosho Parts

Hey guys... Sorry to be off topic...but appreciate if you guys can point me to online stores that stock Kyosho parts and also accept international orders (Im from Singapore).

I've always wanted to run Kyosho cars but cant seem to find a good source for their parts (1/10 Electric). The local distributor carrys electric car kits but their pretty pathetic when it comes to parts support. Thanks

I LOVE my FS. Best handling 4-wheel drive car I have driven, and I think I have driven them all except the Losi. If anyone wants to buy a B44 for real cheap, i'm willling to part with it for parts for my FS.

I just got a ZX 5 SF and I am getting it ready to roll. I have a 10.5 motor that will be used with a Sphere B,less speed control.

Can anyone recommend a servo? I was thinking 120-140 oz and .10-.18 is that close?

Anyone have something they like to use and I should look at? I am not trying to match but I have a digital futaba I like for my truck, and I run a KO spectrum radio.

Thank you
