Design looks cool but a little complicated. Gas tank looks a little small ... and everything is cramped in there but I'm sure for good purpose.

Its too bad this class doesn't take off ...

Yea, it really does look cool as heck!!! Like Serpent7twenty, concerned about the small-size appearance of the fuel tank (especially since this is touted as a 1/7th scale). Wonder what the street price is going to be? Hopefully, it will be cheaper than the Serpent F180 (good quality but $1,000+). You will definitely need a ton of front wings, I see them being destroyed regularly.

I remember Ofna had the Nitro F1 way back which was similiar to this though had no upper deck and an open chassis layout. You didn't need much of a motor in there as most stock motors would be plenty powerful.

Looks like the Kyosho DeAgastini F2004, 05, AND 06 1/10 cars. You get a couple parts twice a month when you buy a magazine. An interesting but EXTREAMLY expensive way to build an r/c car.... it can also take the better part of a year to get all the parts!

http://www.deagostiniedicola.it/collezioni/f2007/

Don't think this was ever offered in the US... I got parts from overseas eBay.

http://shop.ebay.de/?_from=R40&_trks...All-Categories

Would like to see them offer a complete car.

No, this is more up to the decision of Kyosho America. There was a big push by the racers to get them to import the Spada (the nitro 1/12th scale) and a rep from Kyosho America got onto RC Tech and told us that the Spada was not going to be imported to the US period. Despite that, several hundred kits made it to the states and benefited Asian online stores at the behest of US distributors. I saw a short vid on this and think the car is cool as heck. I would love to have one even if there is never a class to race it.

Hey Bro, don't know about that.

If the dealers wanted to order & support the car, don't you think it would have happened?

It's too easy for people to blame the crew at Kyosho America for marketing decisions when the market is decided by the hobby shops & dealers.

If there are several hundred Spada cars in America... where are they running at?

As for the F1 on this thread topic, if I wanted it bad enough, I would just get the magazine. It's their promo Bro.
