Now I am not starting this rumor. I am just curious to know if anyone has heard anymore on this.

Yes, they are working on a shaft driven touring car.
And with the base of that one they'll make a 4WD off road buggy.
I thought saw it on another forum, like the radio control zone one.

He's been running for Kyosho in 1/8 buggy for a while so it would only make sense for him to switch when they finally come out with a EP touring car that can compete somewhat.

Some dude who works for Great Planes says all the Kyosho cars are not going to be produced, but who knows. I also thought somebody said there was going to be Kyosho USA and they would go away from GP. It would be nice to have actual answers.

Seems strange that he'd run a Ep touring car from Kyosho. Doesn't he have a day job at Associated? (as opposed to just being sponsored...)

Does that mean he will not be running the B4/T4 either? That is a blow to both their on and off road teams if that is the case. AE lost Easton and now if this is true Mark....those guys are tuff to replace.

I think this could be great for both parties if tue. What better way to introduce new products than to have one of the top U.S. drivers run them. Hopefully they'll bring out a touring car, 2wd/4wd buggy, & gas/electric truck. Kyosho has the resources to be at the top of the game in these classes and Mark could be the one to get them there.

My guess is that if Mark switches to Kyosho, it is because he wants to focus on nitro racing.

Btw Mark, I enjoyed watching you on the track at the worlds in Sweden.
