Captain,

A collector will buy a car with no concern for spare parts

But, as a racer myself, I totally understand your point of view and fully agree.

It's a shame Kyosho electric touring cars, especially high ends, have always been quite expensive, even in Japan. Never understood why...

Cheers,

Hey, Jeff...where can someone is the US get parts from the TF6?

Also, do you have the setup that Christopher Krapp used at worlds?

I think Kyosho's idea of parts support is for everyone to buy two kits.

@Rc Market

Will you be getting this in soon?

@everyone else

Apart from the-border.com does anyone know where I can purchase a TF6?

Just lower the price a bit and put it on the market, then find out .


People are willing too buy the overpriced MP9 so what more evidence does Kyosho need. And I doubt the nitro TC market is as big as the electric TC market but yet Kyosho has no problem selling the many versions of their VoneRRR cars.


Kyosho = weird!

Including all those RTR Fazers and IGT cars that are hardly ever seen at the local race track.

Any word on why Kyosho America isn't importing these? Are they very popular anywhere else around the world? Seems odd that Kyosho wouldn't bring them to the States.

Well it does seem like that's the case across the US but here in Seattle on-road is our closest option and it's actually fairly popular. The closest off-road tracks are all at least 45 mins from downtown.

So it seems to be more of a regional thing.
