Thumbs up

i'm thinking that you mean the kx-one. i would go to that thread. don't worry, it's really small. darkseid messed with one for a few weeks. i would trust his setup. besides, it may be the only one you'll find. if he even posted it. if not, you may want to pm him. he's cool.


good luck. i actually have one, but i haven't run it on the rug yet, and perhaps not for some while.

Waiting on you Socko..........



It must be the kx one...........Don't really know anything other than its electric and its a sedan. I don't run Kyosho and the guy who needs the setup is never around when I need info.

I messed with it for more than a few weeks. In fact I still have the car.

Heres my setup...........

race it how you built it! Basically, I ran the kit setup with excellent results. Especially outdoors! Outside on asphalt with rubber tires, this thing can hang with any modern day TC easily. If your going to run indoors on carpet, I would suggest running the lowest foams you can. That will keep you from rolling over and will let the high transitioning speed of the car shine through.

If it helps, heres the electronics that I ran. GMV12, Airtronics 94102, Novak XXL.

I was thinking of getting one from Tower when they had it for $120 on closeout or something, if for nothing else than collectibility's sake (is collectibility a word? haha).

Although the car never reached mainstream popularity, I hear it wasn't terribly bad. Just in a crowded field at the time and not much aftermarket support, at least not here in the states.
