Glad to hear it

I just find it odd that Kyosho are "finishing off" the Stallion car whilst you are still in what seems like an early stage of development with your design.

Like I said, I think your car shows a lot more promise, so I'd rather Kyosho concentrate on your design

The point is...enough talk on the chalkboard!! We need to get something on the track now! You can keep talking and have nothing to race with or just get the damn car and start talking about set-ups.

So whoever it may concern, just get the damn cars delivered!!! The ones at the RCX show were good enough!! Stop stalling and start selling. Period!!!!!

I think Kyosho is somewhat gunshy.. With the somewhat failure of there last few tc's i think there over thinking this.. Put out what you have, and if you find something better, offer an update kit..

Heck i ran a kyosho tf-3 at the 2000 novak race in stock rubber.. I qualified 11th out of 89 peeps, .009 out of the show on a 5 plus year old car. I got laughed at so much before racing started, it wasnt funny.. I loved the way the car fit my driving so i ran it... the whole a main was tc-3's and one yok.. It is setup as .YR4Dude stated... yeah a nice car helps, but your going to refine yourselves right out of sales..

Yes. I'll be running the T2. Decided not to waste my time with my other lofty cars. They're just better off to be run on practice days or kept in my private museum. This is only until................... well we all know what this thread is about.

Where's the damn car?!!!! Where's the damn car?!!!!!!

Patience people. Damn, let them give us a great car instead of just a good car that everyone will wish was better.

I agree with GrandeGixxer, let Kyosho get this car correct the first time. Lets not have a RDX or T2 car that comes out, lots of potential but lots of problems. Granted these 2 cars are awesome, but they needed lots of little tweaks here and there to get the bugs out.

Just like with the ZX-5, had a few bugs, changed the plastic molds and it seems the problems are gone.

I am just going to be patient and wait, because if they get these 2 cars right, watch out!

Later,

I will not be buying an electric car until right before winter anyways since it is gas season. So I am really in no hurry anyways. It should be safe to say that any potential bugs should be worked out by then.... Hopefully.

Just being nitpicky here :

- the one thing that i see missing here on the kyosho cars are blades for the universals... especially with a spool up front.

- too bad the stallion comes with molded bulkheads, we all know we ll be buying the nice shiny red ones which will come later.. no doubt about it

Yes, I really hated changing diff outdrives every meet in modified with my old 415. I would never again buy a chassis that dosen't support this...

Why does the TF-5 on the front page have hex screws?

Is it a sign?
