Can't see the pics... I tried to sign into Kyosho, but apparently the password I had doesn't work anymore.

Well, since I know one of them is the cop car... yes !... they should re-produce them !

(but I still don't know the other 3 choices... someone help ?)

That is the biggest sacriledge I've ever read...if it isn't Corsa Red I can't look at it!

Just kidding, btw...any F40(the truest Ferrari drivers car ever!) would be an awesome return!

Enzo never liked his cars yellow, said they "looka likea Taxi Cab".

So getting back to sort of being on topic, is there some kind of rotation Kyosho uses when producing bodies? I mean obviously, they cannot produce every body all the time, but I do notice there is a run on certain shells (Gulf McLaren) a few times per year, then everyone has them stocked up the wazoo. Are the readyset shells what stays in constant production and the others are rotated to meet demand, or?

Mini-Z's may be produced once or twice a year...Race bodies most of the time are only once.

this is very good to know. I guess I'd better make sure I get the ones I want when they come out, because the race bodies are my favorite.

Tim, when you say race bodies, I assume that you mean the shells with a Race Livery, correct?

I would think that some of the bodies with a greater demand, regardless of their markings, would be produced more often. All logos and such on the shells are just Tampo-printed, are they not?

That is where most don't understand. The licensing of all the companies on these cars have to be approved. Every little sponsor on the car gets a piece of the action....LOL...So it is not a matter of producing the car, it is a matter of licensing. Everything has to be approved. Kyosho is one of the few companies that actually have properly licensed R/C product.

That is understood, but once you submit a model for license approval do you need to re-submit for another production run? Not being difficult, just expanding my mind. :D

Tim Johnson

Everything you do with that product from production to marketing, for the most part needs to be approved ahead of time. And of course this changes a bit from car to car.

But Mazda787B is asking if said liscenses ever run out? Like is there a time frame Kyosho can use the Mugen name & logo? (Mugen just for example)

Most are for a year.

Ah I see. So you don't just buy the licensing and keep it forever; no wonder a lot of models/bodies and stuff have such limited runs of production. It all makes sense now. :p Now, go make more WRC cars!! :D

I hit #1 and #3, I'd like to see the F40 released for the MR02. I also picked the police car, be nice to have that in a white body set so you can do your local PD colors.

I love the F-40. But how about an F-40GTC? The one with the extra body work on it? That would be hot! :)

I think the license runs out once a year b/c the livery usually changes every season, and they would like their most recent livery available if there is going to be reproduction ;)

the F50 GT would be hotter...lol :D

I voted for the F40. top 3 Ferrari of all time in my mind. 288 GTO, F40, F355.

I cant wait for the 575GTC to be released, I love that body :D When I get one, first thing I am going to do is put it on the bed, and grind on it like a cheap dancer on a golden pole ;)
