The seller is selling this car with a C5 about 2-3 gallons for $320. Any comments on the price based on the condition?

I was thinking this is a Delta as some may have suggested but according to the owner he got this car last Summer (2006). Could there be different versions for different markets?

Please help.
To be honest with you...that chassis looks more like a Delta chassis....I know because I have the same car.....Parts are interchangeable between the Kyosho and Delta.....so I think this car would be a good starting point for you.....Good luck............

I would have to say this is not a Delta version of the car. I have been running the Delta since prototype and the openings on the bottom of the Delta chassis have the trailing edge bevelled. Also the radio tray has several cut outs not shown in the pictured car. Either car is a fantastic car and you cant go wrong with it.

Anyone knows where to get good price on the WC version besides Ashford Hobby?
We got one for $500.

There was no new Evolva shown in Nuremberg so we all have to wait a bit longer.

You sure? It may not have been displayed at Nuremberg but it has been shown somewhere. Probably Japan.

See post 1105 on the previous page: here

For the moment...Yes!!

Maybe the new car (for sure there is one) will be shown at the worlds...


Has anyone of you some news about the new shorter upper arms + shock stay etc.
How do they feel and compare to the standard ones...?
What about the lightweight wheel axles...?
Here in Germany Kyosho does not even know about the new parts discussed here...

Read up a few pages in this thread. Aaron Buran gave details and there are some photos too. As for the new axles, I don't know if they are lightweight, but they are offset.

The new axles are awesome, I actually have to put weights on my car now to get it legal, even with a NmH battery pack, and all my empire alum goodies. We will be testing the new a-arm in Florida next week. As for the rest of the parts, we are still waiting.

Default Lightweight axles

Just a note: If you do run aluminum axles - you must do constant maintenance on the universal pins and barrels (the small pins that couple the axles to the dog bones). They wear quickly. You must clean, disassemble and re-grease after every one hour of operation. Even then, the small pins wear very quickly and egg shape the holes in the aluminum. I would only recommend the aluminum axles for larger races. No reason to spend the loads of extra cash for club events.

Great point Rich.

We have seen up to 2 hours or more on the axles if grease is applied everyday. Even if you just squeeze some in at the track to get you by. You can also put the pin in the second set of holes to get double the time out of your axles after the first set gets worn.
