Default New Kyosho vehicle comming out

I saw a teaser image of it on rccaraction.com. It has what looks like a HPI Baja shadow with the words "New Uprising" by it. What do you guys think it is? I'm guessing 5th scale gas or electric buggy

They've been promoting the RB6 recently.

Thread probably belongs in the electric offroad section instead of nitro.... But obviously some sort of "scale'ish" buggy. 4wd SCB perhaps. Always hard to tell with Kyosho...

I'm not so sure thats the RB6 if there's pictures of the whole car out already. Its a teaser image, not a full on article of the buggy. Besides, compare the shock towers of the RB6 pics and the teaser image. there is no rear wing on the teaser but instead a cage, and the rear tires look too big in the teaser to be a race buggy. The only reason I think its a 5th scale is because no one is competing with HPI in that portion of the market and its become a large market. Plus, the butt end of the buggy in the teaser image looks big, like an area where a 26+ cc engine would sit....thats why I thought it was/is a 5th buggy.

How does it probably belong in electric off road? No one besides kyosho engineers and staff would know that its electric or nitro. It's a shadow image

By your own admission, if this is a 1/5th, that means it's either electric, or gasoline, not nitro. Then this should go in the large scale section. If it's not a 1/5th, which I believe it won't be, it's obviously something more scale and intended not as a racer. Nitro doesn't exist anymore in scaler...

I fully realize it's just a shadow pic, and anyone can believe whatever they want to, but the highest possibility is that this is a 1/10th electric. Plain and simple...

Maybe the rbsix version of a scb , they did discontinue the DB . It don't look 4wd , it looks like standard buggy tires on a scb chassis . They might be trying to make a more scale scb class .
