I think that all three were sold in Dallas in the last 18 months!!! I know the guys that have them and they use them for parking lot bashing. Fun to watch but never was going to get any traction.

As far as the KF-01, like the Spada 09, Kyosho Japan never had the US market in mind when they made these. I have inquired with Kyosho America about bringing them here 2 years ago and got the same answer about not bringing it to US markets. Best thing I can tell you is to let it go. If you want one, just order it from RC Mart or some overseas r/c website and enjoy it once you get it.

You are probably right my friend and this may all be in vain. I know there is a market for these cars here in the USA. What happen to manufactoring things in the good ole USA? Hmmm!

R/C is like the auto markets: foreign manufacturers make all the cool shiznit for all the markets except the US. These guys have it in their heads that people in the US are bland, dull, and boring and don't want things too racy, shazzy, and easy on the senses. Don't believe me, look at what Kyosho and especially Tamiya offer overseas as compared to the US. This is the same with Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Volkswagen, Kia/Hyundai, as well as GM and Ford. Live in what we call a "foreign" market, cool stuff pours in. Live in the US market, we will tell you what you like and you are stupid enough to buy it and be satisfied with it. I can go on and on, but you get the picture..........

We are on the same page my friend, thank God since the advent of the Internet and social media we have the power to affect change. Like I alluded to earlier, imagine if we could rally 50 or 100 guys who would be willing to make a mass purchase. The shock n awe would be incredible.

Good deal, It might be time to take a tally.

To the powers at Kyosho, I'm a big fan of the KF01 Nitro F1 cars. Why not sell them in the USA? I called Kyosho USA and was told these cars will Not Be Availible For Sale in The USA. WHY NOT?

It's been 5 days and so far since I started this thread, all I can say is so far so good. I've been told the faith of a mustard seed can move a mountain. Nitro F1 Racing will work here in America. Watch! Oops I forgot to say nice cars, come on out to Cal Raceway we will join you.

Nitro F1? I'm game for that.

What part of southern Cal do you guys race at, I'm moving the Fam out to San Diego (Otay Ranch-East Lake area) next year.
