Anyone got any pictures of the rear end? You can see where the bottom aluminum chassis mounts to the graphite chassis but I'm curious if it's a rigid mount or offers some sort of flex tuning for the rear.

This looks to be more affordable than the Serpent F-180. I am wondering if the current 1/12th scale tires are going to work on this car or will they be special-made and only obtainable through Kyosho.

From the looks of the pictures, it seems to be slightly larger than 1/12 scale. The bodies seem to be wider and longer than typical 1/12 bodies.

So much for my EP Fantom getting a new shell.

Do we have to wait till Kyosho America gets these? Will it be released in Asia sooner? And if so, who will have it online when it is released there?

Very cool.

Looks like not too much setting up of suspension! I'm sure something is complicated in there...guess I'll be back to on-road afterall.

Overall I like it. Here's some questions.
1. why not have a side exhaust so that the header isn't so close to the tire?
2. Should we be carefull when passing wires for your receiever through a belt loop? Or can we mount elsewhere?
3. why not mount a fiberglass antenna pole like electric cars?

1. Would you rather clean the oil off that chassis and rear tire?
2. Electric guys pass wires through belts. You will be ok if you do it correctly. This is a hobby put your receiver where ever you choose...LOL
3. This is a hobby, do what you wish with how you would want to mount your antenna. If you use a spectrum you will not need much of an antenna tube.

This body should be a direct fit to the EP fantom. My understanding is that this body is a third version.

There seems to be two versions, one with blue aluminum bits and the other black plastic (maybe just first prototype).

Hey Juan,

It doesn't look like regular electric 1/12 tires & wheels will
work as the pics show a nut on the front wheels rather
than small holes for the usual little bearing's. The rears
appear to have a nut too rather than the ususal 3 x 440
screws. I'm sure it has to have some type of Hex / Pin
drive cup on the back of the wheels since it's 4WD.

Later!
