Default Kyosho Bring The KF01 To The USA

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?

They won't bring it over because they know it won't sell here. BTW, there's a KF-01 thread out there already.

Why won't it sell here in the USA? I was told F1 is the fastest growing class in RC on-road racing.

No price too high.
Paddle shifter radios.

I'm a UF1 race fan. With that said I'd pick Nitro F1 racing over electric F1 in a heartbeat.

I have spent my fair share of time drooling over the Serpent F180 kit too. 8th scale nitro F1 oh yeah. Thing is no one runs them at all that I have seen but lets face it racing by yourself really sucks. I would still get one just for myself and to mess with at local tracks.

Here's the thread for it. You can still buy it overseas from Banzai hobby. Electric F1 is still a niche class and nitro doesn't have the popularity it once had. Its easy to see why Kyosho will not bother with introducing it to the states.

Thanks for the info Dan. I have sparked and renewed interest in racing Nitro Rubber tire cars at Cal Raceway. Racing Nitro F1 here in SoCal feels promising.

I've raced in the UF1 summer and winter series off and on for close to two years now, don't get me wrong I like racing F1 electric but I've been missing those addictive characteristics Nitro racing bring to the top. Currently myself and a few of my race buddies are reviving Nitro racing at Cal Raceway.

If you know like I know, guys who like racing Nitro never really stop liking it. They may have switched to racing electric cars in various different forms but most of the Nitro lovers I've spoken with are itching to get into Nitro racing. A few are hesitant to spend money on a no show class. Once we show up to the track running a Nitro F1 cars, I'm sure more will follow.


Hey guys, maybe they will cut us a deal if order 50 RTR's
