well i think it will handle fine because 1/12th electric mod is alot faster than 1/8th scale on-road and they handle pretty good with the limited suspencion

Default Kyosho

Taylor & Marcos,

This new Kyosho product can help grow the sport of RC racing into the “Mainstream” in many ways.

Getting property from community leaders is not the hard part of the track equation. The hard part is the funding needed, the ability to justify the costs of construction of a large track and insurance liability associated with large track projects.

“Parks Departments” have properties available all over the country; many however don’t see the investment will benefit the “general public”. Remember that we R/C enthusiasts are really part of a “sub-culture” in the eyes of America and the world.

The Kyosho Spada has the ability to offer the “mainstream population” the excitement associated with “Nitro” racing on a smaller more affordable scale.

Here in Tampa Florida we have a nice little track “Adrenalin Raceway”, the asphalt is very smooth and this little Kyosho is the perfect vehicle to expose this form of motor sports we all love.

Nothing is as impressive as the sight, sound & smell of Nitro.

Tim, Let us know where & when we can buy your new ride!

Don't know. I have been scouring the web and Kyosho's site and have not seen more than what has been posted and used on this forum. Anybody that has any other information, please chime in at any time.
