I don't see where this car would require any more or less hop up or option parts than other cars on the market....

There could still be suspension holders for adjustment (if they aren't included in the kit), chassis and top deck if additional stiffening is required (which couldn't be known until testing of production level parts on carpet), aluminum C-Hubs, knuckles and carriers (like many look at for other cars), as well as the various diff, one-way and spool components depending on your intended surface and the car's packaging...

People won't have to complain about a battery strap not being included though, as the prototype shown has no provision to allow for one (again this may change before production)

Guys,
This car looks outsanding! I only have issue with location of the motor. I would rather it to be on the other side of the pulley / spur, closer to the rear. I can only assume it sits closer to the center of the car for better balance.

ChrisP,
This car carries over the suspension design made popular by Tamiya and others. There will probably be spacers to go under the mounts for roll-center changes.

Oh, you were referring to the "toe blocks" a.k.a. suspension mounts. Yeah, they'll probably be additional toe blocks, too.

Our Parts support currently is excellent. It is a matter of weather or not your local hobby shop chooses to order from Kyosho or not. Product ships out the same day, in most cases.

I was wondering since Kyosho electric touring car was a new car, who are some of the sponsor drivers to debut this car in upcoming races this year?

As far as I knwo the only US driver is Josh Cyrul. I know Adachi is but as for the rest of them I am not sure. I'ld imagine Ito and the rest of the gas guys would be going to electric races now too.

Its to bad the the car was not finished a little sooner than maybe Lemuix would have stuck it out with Kyosho instead of going to Xray. I don't know if that is the reason but it seems like that was what happened.

As for some of the Kyosho gas guys Atomic and Toso run corally rdx's so it would be interesting after or before worlds if there will be any more driver changes with the new car. Maybe these two guys??

I have a feeling once Cyrul wins worlds with it that there will a lot of big names wanting on the new band wagon called Kyosho.

That and will be interesting to see how many disgruntled or incompetent T2 owners will be selling off there cars for this terrific car. ( I think the biggest problem with the T2 is the incompetence of some of the racers that don't know what the hell they are doing.)

One question, so is this the car that Cyrul built from the ground up on his own?? I thought I remember him posting something that Kyosho gave him free rain to make this his own project from start to finish.

One other thing. When do we get to start complaining about the release date or shipping or customs from Japan. I think it should follow suit with Xray and Losi don't you?

I can't wait for the ever so famous words in recent rc history; "In two weeks!"

i know schumacher just picked up some great talent, in part, as a result of this frustration.

I talked to Paulie for a while one night in Vegas at a roulette table about this. He was really frustrated that he only got to run 1/12 scale at that race because Kyosho didn't have a TC for he and Josh to drive.

Can I just add my internet dis-information to this discussion and say that I don't think this is Josh's car.
