Why do you think the pricing policy will change for the better?

I've heard from multiple sources that Kyosho will take away the exclusive arrangement with Great Planes in the US soon.

THANK GOD!!!! Sheeeesssh!! It's about time! Man, you just made my day! I guess they finally realized that was killing their sales. Great planes didn't even carry a lot of the stuff (hop-ups) Kyosho made for their kits... nitro touring, that is.

That TF-5 looks sweet!!! I'd really like to get my hands on this kit. I'll feel a lot better about getting another Kyosho kit, knowing parts & hop-ups, will be a lot more readily available.

Yeah, which seems weird for how big a company they are.

Default TF-5 IN STORES, HERE IN THE STATES?!

Anything new, guys? I'm looking for another tourer for the indoor season. I wanted to get this thing, before I went out and bought another Xray. I did want a belt drive car, but... I'll gladly scoop-up the TF-5, If I can get it SOON! Any Release date or any Japanese sites selling it?

In my opinion, GP doesn't even carry much of Kyosho's products and if they aren't carrying it, most of the US dealers aren't carrying it. And if the products do hit GP, the lag time is great. I could mention a few other products too but why bother. I just wish that Kyosho's mini-buggy was out already!

Kyosho should take a look at what works, Look at Xray, they put in a big Ol' distridution center (in the U.S. of course) and now parts support is much better and it only takes a few days not weeks to get them. I love kyosho for quality and well they are just plain HUGE and they have some of the best tech/R&D out there. If they would only bring the the stuff to us. AND a note for Grat Plains get off your duff and work harder.
Just my two pennies.

This car will never be made it is a concept car and Kyosho does not have planes on making this car. Their major focus is on
nitro and a EP touring car is not on their agenda.

I really prefer this prototype over the actual one, it's a pity Kyosho gave up this design...
