We got ours here in Japan on the 1st of August. I dont know how long it will take to get to the U.S. but i have noticed a few of the New Kyosho Nitro cars have a lower price in the States than in Japan. So if you can wait you might be able to get a better deal on it.
I am disapointed that Kyosho America hasnt got in gear with this car, Really they have a Truggy thing on thier website that isnt going to be availble untill October. But not a word of the Spada.

Honestly, despite my own interest in this car, I can see why there is not enough interest. For starters, this car needs a smooth well groomed track environment. That is something lacking here in the U.S. Of those tracks that are, they're primarily made for 1/8 or 1/10. Even watching 1/10 on the track looks small so 1/12 would be even worse.

I've heard that this car is great in Japan because there are many well groomed onroad tracks that are suitable for 1/10 touring so the 1/12 nitro would be a good fit. However, here in the states it isn't the case.

If anything the Inferno GT is the hottest thing going here in the U.S. Large scale cars with hot looking fully detailed bodies. Those have been flying off the shelves at hobby stores.

That's so unfortunate, because all the sales will be lost to Japan and HK hobby stores.

Baka, anymore videos coming out this weekend? Please

Ed Anderson is right, The green head comes with the Car and the Larger blus is an option part. Personally i think the Blue over sized head is a little over priced. one of the last hop up options i will be getting.

That does sound expensive. But how are the other Kyosho cars priced? Are the V-ones priced right or are they over priced also?
