If the RB6 is the same or better than it's predecessor, then it will be good, no matter what its price tag is.. Kyosho cars are definitely better quality than other kits, period...if you dont agree, check above sentence highlighted in gray...

I and a couple of others in my area felt the same way about the 22. When the grip was high it was hard to beat and when it wasn't you had a fight on your hands trying to keep it between the pipes.

Well said the 22 sucks on loose dirt period!!! THis is why i will be getting an rb6 not getting a 22 and putting velvet's on it because can a sure you that it will still handle like a POS!!!!! Not saying the 22 sucks but if you want a 22 you better have a nice high bight clay track! I hope the RB6's release will be on time not a few month's delayed like the WC's were.

Price doesn't bother me, so I've ordered one. If price bothered me I wouldn't have a RB5 Vega and a RudeBits DB1.

RB5 will prob be sold as will my spare FS2 SP which I haven't touched. So will be left with FS2 SP race car, RudeBits DB1 and RB6.

Kyosho RudeBits DB1 won the 2WD UK national at Silverstone yesterday

The RB5 SP2/WC is still a very good car and its well made so it will hold its value more then others. I have my spare car on there for $250.00 and have been receiving alot of activity.
