Formula 1 has been my favorite form of auto racing my whole life of 53 years so what I'm about to say is based on what I see.

The real reason Kyosho won't send cars like the KF01 here is actually our fault! The USA can't even keep a Grand Prix on it's shores, yet third world countries can. The rest of the world, Japan included, thinks all we care about is NASCAR. Kyosho is in it to make money ultimately and they are not going to risk the money involved to ship and sell that car here when they obviously don't think there are enough people who will buy and race it here. Same thing with HPI. They have an American headquarters, but I think the final decisions are made in Japan. HPI has some beautiful new Renault and Williams 1/10 F1 bodies that they won't sell here because they don't think there are enough of us who want it.

Kyosho makes a gorgeous 1/7 scale nitro F1 Ferrari that they don't offer here as well.

Believe me, I LOVE Formula 1, and wish it were different.

I guess you are all wrong as Banzai hobbies is taking pre orders for this kit.
I'm ordering 2 and I live in Australia.

That will never happen, but good wishful thinking though. Kyosho America doesn't think that this product will earn a profit in the States, thus they will not bring it here.

Anyone here got one yet? Need to know if existing 1/10 F1 tyres will also fit.

Got it about a year ago, I was hard on the kit the first few months and rplacement parts take about two weeks to get to me. Lots of hop ups from Kyosho R246 products. The car responds well to tuning and upgrade parts
I do live in the Philippines, where we don't have a Kyosho distributor. Now there are 3 of these kits in the Philippines, I hope there'll be enough to start it's own class. Right now, the electric guys let us join their races, though we need to pit every 5-7mins, big disadvantage... all in good fun though
