Looks cool but to me its just an interesting design. If the spada didn't come to the US then its unlikely this car will come to the US. So why get excited.

A few guys will buy from overseas and then whine they can not get parts and support for it.

Spares.. I'm ordering spares overseas all the time. Takes just a week to get into my mailbox. Spada does not break parts much, but this F1 may be a bit more vulnerable to collisions.. so just order some critical parts in a bunch to keep going. Cheers

You are so right!!! This is probably an Asian market release only with the rest of us doing what you said if we want it.

Yeah, Senna was like a god in Japan! I think they loved him just as much as his fellow Brazilians; so it makes sense that Kyosho would do a "Senna style" McLaren body for this car. Doubt we will ever see it here in the States though.

Wish they could have done a better job concealing the head on the motor; maybe go with some sort of low-line profile head instead of the tall one shown.

Don't know why I'm even worried about that since we will never see it!

It won't be released in the states because Kyosho knows what is good for us!! They keep flooding us with Mini-z stuff and I am surprised they are still letting us have the Inferno GT, V one RRR, and Evolva as well as the offroad stuff. If you want one, better order it through one of the Hong Kong r/c websites because that is the only way you are going to get it here. Kyosho always keep their good stuff for the Southeast Asian markets.

Many of us have been trying to figure that out for years. Many of their product/business decisions in regards to the US market has been very questionable to say the least. It is what it is and if you want the good Kyosho stuff, you will have to shop from the overseas websites, plain and simple.
