Well whenever they do come out with one, at least the market has caught up with Kyosho's pricing.

Remember when the KX-1 came out selling for like $369 and people thought they were nuts for charging that much...

...now $369 for a full race kit is a frickin' bargin!

I was just checking out some pics of the TF-4 and they don't look very similiar. Are you completely sure they are the same car? Paul's car had the batteries staggered, and the lower deck reminded me of the JRXS, being how wide it was.

Im really looking forward to the release of a Kyosho car with input attained from the likes of Josh and Paul, and with the know how from Kyosho im sure it will be something special.

Is there any hint about a time frame for release, 3, 6, 9 12 months etc?

Paul's car is a TF4 with a hand build hand dremeled chassis and custom parts. That's why it don't look like a stock TF4. He's just very good with a dremel!!!

An ugly car can still win a race. Looks aren't everything, function over form!
