    Running Changes RCN

    Kyosho America has announced the popular Kyosho RB6 buggy will undergo ‘running changes’ for new kits produced. The new features of the buggy include several features that were planted on Jared Tebo’s IFMAR World Championship winning car from 2013. Designed specifically for mid-motor racing, the new kit will include 3 hole rear suspension arms, gold rear shock springs, and a selection of rear wings. While these changes are far from releasing an earth-shattering new car, Kyosho says these changes improve durability, allow for broader setting options, and increase stability on high grip surfaces including artificial grass, carpet, and hard-packed dirt.

    “The constant whining and complaining will drive you mad, and ultimately suck the fun and desire to be a part of the event all together.”
