Kyosho FO-XX 1/8th basher truck

Kyosho FO-XX 1/8th basher truck

Kyosho have released first information and photos of the FO-XX 1/8th scale basher truck based on what appears to be a revamped Twin/Mad Force chassis. Featuring a lightweight vertical plate chassis with inner dirt shields and front and rear rigid axles the truck resembles a mud-slinging Formula Off-Road vehicle with its paddle-type tyres and scale bodyshell. Threaded big bore shock absorbers make for improved off-road performance while a front bumper with light buckets not only look cool but also protect the chassis from the rigours of off-road racing. The FO-XX comes ready-to-run including a 2.4GHz radio system, a waterproof high-torque steering servo and your choice .25 big block nitro motor or a high-performance brushless system.
