Great way to rest up for the next snowstorm.

Overall I thought the fit and finish were outstanding. Zero slop in the car but yet the steering and suspension moved freely. Like everyone else has stated the manual is borderline useless .

I wish I saw the build guide Xpress put on their website before the build, some nice tips there. I had a couple minor issues: I did not see the notch in the gear diff before assembly and almost deformed the gear a bit. And the only truly frustrating part of the build for me was the turnbuckle/ball cup setup. This was more due to the manual than anything else. Calling all of the ball cups short was not helpful.

Very impressed with the quality of the car, ordering some electronics soon. Look forward to running it.

This looks like such a fun car, but there doesn't seem to be much interest. Is that true?

I saw there is a prototype buggy conversion kit too.

My only wish for this car is for more scale body option. The car itself is beautiful.

The lack of body options for the car is going to put this car out of demand. The only thing that fits is the stock body, Tamiya's Jinmy and the VW bus.

Ive been telling the Xpress folks for months to make more bodies, but they were too busy pushing their Touring car out. Ive lost interest and sold the car while Its still worth something.

I strongly agree with you disaster999. I like the whole idea of a kei chassis and the car is nicely design but the lack of any true scale body is going to kill this car. You think they would come out with atleast the most know ones

The K-chassis is the first car that Xpress has brought with its return. This latest pocket rocket will fit your favorite 1:10 size ESC and motor and can be setup for both drift and touring driving.

Do not let its mini sized and good looking body fools you though, with the high quality material and its unique design, Xpresso K1 is designed with premium quality material sa well low and centered COG in mind. Xpresso K1 is designed to fit most of the WR02 / GF01 bodies like Suzuki Jimmy, Toyota Land Cruiser.
