Kyosho Ultima SC6 Readyset 2WD short course truck

Kyosho Ultima SC6 Readyset 2WD short course truck

Joining the Ultima SC Readyset RTR and competition specification Ultima SC-R kit is Kyosho’s third model in this fast growing series; the Ultima SC6. Based on the 2013 Electric Off-Road World Championship RB6 design, the Ultima SC6 has been modified for optimal short course performance from race data and driver feedback. Superior turning performance from the mid-ship layout, smooth suspension movement with big bore aeration oil shocks and minimal drive loss due to the gear differential all combine to deliver dynamic performance on off-road circuits, especially high-grip surfaces. Equipped with the newly developed Team Orion dDrive 1-piece ESC and brushless motor power unit the Readyset also comes with a newly designed pre-cut and printed body and KT-331P transmitter with LCD screen.

Kyosho TF7 4WD electric touring car

Kyosho TF7 4WD electric touring car

Coming in late September is Kyosho’s all-new TF7 4WD touring car kit. The car is based around a new chassis that features both a floating servo and a floating battery mount which resolves some issues with asymmetrical flexing of the chassis. Mounted exactly on the center-line this allows the carbon fiber chassis plate to be completely symmetrical, which makes the chassis flex much more predictable, and therefore, the handling is more responsive and predictable. The lower chassis plate is milled from 2.25mm carbon fiber, and the upper plate is 2.0mm milled carbon. The carbon shock towers measure at a robust 3.5mm thickness, which provides a solid, durable mount for the updated shocks.
