Default Kyosho Dnano 1/43rd scale racer



Spotted at the toy fair today is the yet to be launched Dnano. Much smaller than a mini-Z, this is for the racer with serious space constraints.

I can just see myself laying a bit of carpet on the floor and having a full race track in the living room!

Hope the cost is not as high as the Mini-Z's have become.

They look highly detailed to me but I am also wonder what the chassis look like and more important: tuning: alloy/carbon parts motors batteries.

The 1st vid is of the parade of the various cars available for the press etc..
teh 2nd vid shows that the cars have some good pace in a race.

The radio is laughable. Did they make these for three year olds?
