    With Pavidis on the team (plus another rumoured top US driver) there seems no doubt that Kyosho are planning a big comback in electric. both off road and touring cars.

    The ZX5 prototype has already had success, with a couple making the A-Main at last years Japanese Nationals.

    Will be nice to have another addition to 4wd e buggy racing. If you are looking for a class to run that isn't defaulted to just two vehicle types in the USA, this could be for you. Just need a class seperate from full out mod to make it work. Maybe 19 turn as the 4wd stocker.

    What is the latest on this car? When is it coming to the U.S. or when will it be available? I've checked the Kyosho website and there is no word about this car at all.

    Considering that this car wa based on their prototype touring car which has apparently been scrapped as Cyrul, Lemieux and the rest of the Kyosho team develop a new (reportedly) belt drive car....this off-roader may have died on the table

    Ah, so perhaps this is not correct:
    Kyosho has released a new top-of-the-line competition off-road buggy, the ZX-5

    CF chassis will work fine for off-road.Yokomo used to use them all the time in the 4x4 buggies.

    I would take the plastic tub version over the CF plate chassis anyday. Less expensive, more durable and no undertray.

    agreed here tallyrc. I think that is what is hurting 4wd from really exploding right now is more vehicles in a reasonable price range to go with. 4wd needs those really high end vehicles to statisfy the high dollar driver out there, but you also need the more affordable kits to bring in guys who are interested in the class but aren't hardcore racers willing to drop $500 on an electric kit when they see they can get a 1/8 scale buggy RTR for less.

    I am glad MRC / Academy has the SB in 3 versions right now to satisfy the cheaper but still perform segment, but if Kyosho did release an affordable 4wd buggy to the States before the all out carbon plate edition, I know of alot of people who would jump on the 4wd bandwagon because the vehicle is kyosho.

    Now if AE would only make a 4wd E buggy . . .

    I would prefer a little more alum. and CF where it is needed.

    Hopefully those will be available and affordable when the kit is released.

    Totally agreed with Cain.

    I'd love to pick up Academy buggy but I can't get parts for it locally. I might still pick one up anyways...but it's frustrating to not have it available through any of the big distributors. I can even get CEN stuff if I want it...but not Academy...

    Pro buggies are nice...but I don't wanna drop 400 dollars on one. I can pick up a TNX for that. If I've got the choice of another nitro monster (RTR none-the-less) or an unassembled 1/10 electric buggy for the same money, I'm going to take the monster.
