just check their shipping before ordering. It was almost percent the price of the vehicle back in summer

Not a Fantom, but still somewhat related - and it got its maiden run today... I thought you guys might get a kick out of this and ain't quite sure where to post it, so....

Thinking about selling one of mine. Built, all stock, painted body. Donít see track time for a few months. No need to be sitting if someone wants one. Iíll list on the for sale forum soon.

Did a re wire on the fantom. Not finished but looking promising. Had to order a correct length sensor wire. Will finish next week

Just as I thought Kyosho wasn't doing much with the Fantom, I just went to their web site and saw they added quite a few upgrades for it. That's really good to see. I wonder if they plan on coming out with a 1/10 on-road car.

They have two 1/10 on-road cars already. I was told when I talked to a Kyosho guy that the TF series does well in Japan but there isn't enough interest for it to really be worth bringing over here. The TF 7 didn't really sell well here. The Gazer has been very good for the brand and it is a much better market for them to be in. The basher/drift/speed run market that the Fazer lives in is alive and well and dwarfs the racing scene.

you need a Spada and a BL motor mount like this one https://www.ebay.com/itm/263781059671 - and a lot of fiddling for hours with all kinds of stuff to make it all work together, creativity needed - but hugely satisfying, plus it runs kind of ok
