Wow, what a surprise move!

On another note, Toni will be sporting red beanie now.

In that case it says that there isn't much to the car. Just another high-dollar chassis that requires a lot of work to set-up and maintain. Nothing like the reliability of an XRay dialed out of the box that takes all the fun out of wrenching feverishly in between heats.

Okay enough talk, enough speculation. This car would REALLY have a chance to sell itself if it is up to snuff if we all can get our hands on one to experience its glory or its folly. So, where is the car?? Where is the car???

Read the article again, it's Marc's brother Toni that signed with Kyosho. Marc will still be running his Tamiya at the worlds.

Okay.

But is still borrowing from the same talent source. The same could still be said about the car. Its not like the the two brothers are gonna stay separate of each other. I'm sure they'll swap cars for fun and possibly even ideas and set-ups.

This is pretty interesting commentary considering it's probably based on pictures. Or have you actually driven this thing?

Thoughtless, not based in fact, posts are the best - aren't they?!

What-ever to this slowass, er slewis guy. From looking at the pics these are two of the most perfect looking TC's I've ever seen, I especially like the mid-motor BD design. Almost sorta evil looking, like something Darth Vader would drive

Default The shafty has landed!

Sorry to butt in to all this talk of belts, but the shaft-drive TF-5 is now in the UK - I think we have some of the first - http://www.rc-direct.co.uk/kyosho-tf...it-p-2195.html

Default Available on Kyosho's website

The TF-5 is also available on Kyosho's online shop.

Look here:
Kyosho TF-5

Same price as a T2. Not bad. Lets see how the Stallion will turn out.

The shaft car looks like every other shaft car out their..Pro4 or Yokomo mostly, I'm sure it will suffer from the same fate ever other shaft car suffers from..The Belt car does look good, I think the mid motor design works well in the TA05 so I'm sure it will work great in the Kyosho. I'm glad to hear the shocks are on par with the Tamiya ones. I hope that the price is kept in the low $400 (I would like to see it lower..but you know that's not going to happen) It's good to see another company make a TC.
