Wow... I love all this speculation! Here is my $.02:

1) Kyosho USA will not be the GRP Dist. in the USA. My guess is Mugen considering the motor collaboration between the two companies. My other choice would be Horizon.

2) I'll be running 1/8th in Florida and Kyosho will also be bringing Shimo in from Japan.

3) Mark has assembled an Evolva for me for Florida (which I will try not to dissassemble in the front chicane), but told me to "win something" before he would be seen at the track with me!

4) Kyosho America will be importing Kyosho "Red Box" tires for all our cars. We should have these in stock in a couple of weeks and we will have a press release out by the end of the week with more info. These tires were used by the Kyosho team at the 2005 1/8th Nats (Rears) and were used in Brazil to win the Worlds there with the RRR.

This whole debate is very intriguing. All I know is my phone is ringing off the hook! We look forward to all the new relationships we have cultivated as a result of this move.

well the uk distributor has been set, and not making it official till beginning of february, so i;m guessing usa distributor will be announced around the same time, but i have no clue who it is, though mugen are bringin in the grp motor they are not goin to be the uk supplier of grp tyres, also heard there will be a slight price increase
