Default Getting into off road

Im looking to get into off-road prefably rally instead of truck or buggy, can any lead me to either any 1/8 or 1/10 NITRO off road kits? i heard something about Kyosho has some STI 1/8 KIT? if not what would be a good buggy kit to start out with, i was thinking the mbx-5?

1) Try the Locate Dealer option 1st. Look at the top of the page, and you'll see those words. Click on that and it will open to a new page. A map will show on this page, click on whereever youre from and it will tell you shops in your area that can order for you.
2) Im not sure, but you might be able to order directly from the site. I didn't see any links though so I'd say your best bet is to try #1. Good Luck.

Kyosho does have an 1/8 scale rally kit, and it is sick!!!!!! On the street it does 45-50 easy, with a .28 and a 2 speed trans. It also hooks up great on a dirt oval. If anything i would go with that. they're going for around $400 i think.

yeah thats the kit i want, just a matter of finding it. do you know if they make any option parts for it? i know its based off that other car so i figure you can use most of the same parts?

As far as i know there aren't any upgrades for it. its based off the 7.5 chassis so i would assume that some stuff from that kit would work with that kit.
