I agree about the bearings, especially since they are trying to find their own niche in the market. The prices should be lower too because they need to market to get people swayed toward their buggy.

I agree, unfortunately it will take alot more to make sway people from xxx-4's or mr4bc's. I wish the class would grow again, hopefully the BJx4 will help out. Maybe this car too.....im hoping 4wheel picks up again....but doesnt look likely.

The company is more popularly know as MRC, or Model Rectifier Corporation. I'm not sure why they changed names..

Really! Can't wait to read the info, where can I pickup RC Driver?

I gave MRC a call and they said the vehicle is out of stock till June, where did you get it at Moe Joe?

Moe Joe, can you post your opinions on the vehicle in the Academy thread?

Thanks.

Back to the Kyosho; is it still competitiive and what kind of wheel pattern is used? Is it Kyosho specific or more standard? What about shocks, what wil fit. I have an oportunity to buy one, but parts availibility has me sketched.

I know parts will be hard to find, but maybe some stuff isn't as bad. I like different/exotic stuff that you can actually race. i like being the only one on a tarck with somehting as long as it is decently competitive.

You guys should try a 4 wheel stock class. We did it at Tacoma RC raceway and the class got huge.

If you race them they will come.

Good luck with the Yokomo. I have run one since christmas and love it. Here's a crazy idea that works really well. Run front tires and wheels all the way around. The car rotates like crazy and carrys mad corner speed.

If you guys want more info about the new Kyosho buggy you need to go to RCCA forum under Kyosho then Lazer ZXR. I posted several pics of the proto guys were running and then some pics of the new shaft drive car they are working on.
