Yea, i asked my track operator this like 6 months ago when people were saying that stuff. There is a min but no crazy amount he said.

He carries parts for 2 kyosho cars. rb5 and lazer.

It's not hard get kyosho poppin' in yer shop.

So.. you think the offroad car is not same than the sedan car ?

You think you can drive fast with a plastic car like tamiya Durga or Kyosho ZX-5?

I think you are confused, A durga and lazer RTR are about the same.

A carbon plastic FS and SP are top notch and can handle with anycarbon 4wd. I think they get better traction.

there are like 3 or 4 guys up there like travis that run kyosho. you could just order online if its a real problem. amain, speedtech, and rc kenon. no problem with parts for me. there are only a handful that race the lazer here. like....5 tops. thats because one of the guys there is really in to electrics so he keeps the parts in stock.
i drive a D8 and they have no D8 parts in the shop but if i need them they can get them.

that minimum order stuff is BS. i've see my LHS orders of kyosho. it could fit in half a shoe box or less sometimes.

way off topic lol.

Lazer ZX-5 sir. Cant go wrong. you might like the SP because of the stick pack config versus the FS saddle config.

I am just getting into dirt racing and I have ran 3 races plus practice time and I just broke my first part on my Cat SX

Keep in mind, I had never driven in dirt so I have been pretty hard on this car! Yes I tried the triple that no one else was doing but it sure was fun!!

I don't know about local support but the guys at Schumacher are top notch and will get parts shipped out to you the same day you order them.

Give it a look....

I have a B44 the car runs great. Super fast, i like the fact that i can get parts almost anywhere. Its also very durable, i have olny broke the normal suspension componets. The HB d4 is very similar, to me it just looks alil cleaner than the b44. i have drove losi xx and xxx-4 the xx has great handeling off jumps and bumps. Both are understeered (i hate that) Both xxx and xx bugies break fairly easy. I coud never have one.... I would go AE or HB. Kyosho looks like a great buggy but i have never drove one so i cant say to much about it, except the local drivers are fast with it at my track.

By today's standards, there all good. I run a B44 and love it, there easy to drive, handles awesome and is a land rocket. The only thing that is a down side are the front arms, the rest of the car is top quality. But today's 4WD technology started with the BJ4 and just keeps getting better.

Yup. I still have yet to break anything after 5-6 trips to the track LOL, stripped a few gears in my KO servo, but those servos are junk anyhow IMO, I need to order another 9551, or a Orion servo soon! Adam and Shawn are AWESOME guys! Will hook you up when you need parts, always get em over fast!

IMO I dont at all like losi shocks, they are nice shocks for sure though!! The schumacher shocks build alot easier when you cut the bladders. Smoooooooooth as can be!
