That's what I'm thinking, Ive had the Evo 2 for a while now and it's still as quick as the Capricorn, so the R4 is next!!

Yes I did on the live feed and you where moving out! You had you car dialed, you should post that set-up for us Kyosho guys. The R4 is going to be much quicker and handle even better. They have made the changes we have been asking for! The kit Should hit the streets in about 2 weeks.

Please kyosho wont sell a touring car for $1,000 because they wouldn't sell any kits. The price will be right around what the shimo cost if not a tad bit more.

You are right Sam these 1/10 scale are starting to price them selfs out of the market.
Nt1 wc $660.00
r4 $700.00
capicorn lab $600.00

I was trying to give 1/10 scale another chance but what is the point of paying 1/8 scale prices for a 1/10 scale car. Most 1/8 scale cars are around $600.00-$700.00 and they are 2secs per lap faster than a touring car. I think I will stick with 8 scale now. I like my m3 evo but the capicorn1/8 car and xray rx8 are looking pretty tempting. I don't know which one to choose?

Who says the R4 is going to street price at $700? I bet it won't be that expensive.
