When I decide to get me an electric touring sedan it will be a Kyosho, they already make great gas sedans which I already own.

What happened to Mark Pavidas? I thought he was also on the Kyosho team. Has that changed?

I think that he still runs for Kyosho. He was instrumental in the new 4 wheeler and 2 wheel buggys they ran at worlds. I thought that he doesn't run onroad though.

So is there a release date yet. This is such crap. It looks like the car is in production form whats the hold up. I am tired of waiting around.

There is no way I will spend more than $200 for it though.

I know. I was being sarcastic and stupid. Just playing around. I won't get the new car untill next fall. As the indoor season is 2/3 the way done and I race gas in the summer.

This will be a great car I do believe.

@ YR4Dude

Have you got the 4wd Plazma? Now there's a 1/12th scale i'd like to run

New Kyosho looks very good, like many on this thread I'm a big K fan.

The only concern I have is the fact that the cells are just so far from the centre-line of the car.

Obviously, the layout is similar to the Kawada Sigma, but the Sigma has the advantage of a single belt and no right-side centre bulkhead - so the cells can be moved closer to the centre.

Just wondering if there is anyway Kyosho can make a very long bulkhead running from front to rear than allows the cells to sit under it (like the bulkhead on the MSX or Cyclone)?

I think you mean the Fantom EP (Chain drive), got that as well as the Hirobo belt drive version. The Plazmas have always been a 2wd car.
