Psssst, hey Tim. Can you give us any hints or clues as to what Kyosho is coming up with next? Perhaps something to compete against Team Losi's Micro-T?
How about a Hot-Rod special Mini-Z series?
Any new body designs for late 07-08?
Hey, how about a real 1/28 scale Micro RC Buggy?

I'll ask for the millionth time. AWD Overland. Also more race bodies. How about the latest F430 GTC and Porsche 997 RSR's?

why would tim divuldge sensitive company information in an informal manner on a public fourm? just asking why you think this would be a good idea marc? put yourself in his position, hell, in anyones position and ask yourself is it work potentially getting fired for?

tim has always been very kind to forward us information on new items and releases, many of which were posted in the news section. i'm sure tim would gladly tell us whatever he could when he could. :)

more frequently, checking japan websites for trade show information and images provides more sneak peaks at whats coming than any kyosho website.

understood but be reasonable about it :) kyosho is a corporation and like any other business i'm sure it has very strict policies regarding divuldging information.

I am curious what Gil is bringing to the table. My only worry is that losi always seemed to live by the motto..."if we build it, they will break it, then they will buy our parts." Good business strategy, bad for the consumer.

Tim, Gil, I have AWD OL chassis ideas...call me :rolleyes:

Guy's, the point of this thread was not to ask for requests. but to see what Kyosho is cooking for us in the kitchen! Please, keep the "I want this" out of this thread! Thank you! Kyosho already has the HOR motorcycle so I doubt they will make smaller ones to Mini-Z scale.

I agree with you on the Mini Cooper. I wanted the same thing too which is why I was excited about the Rally version. I wanted to use it's front driving lights that are mounted in front of the grill. I was also disapointed that the wheels did not have a wider stance.

well since the HOR hadn't been updated since the late 80's I figured that it would be nice to have an update of some sort

I beleive the HOR has been updated recently, right arch? I think the update was the fact that the ryder leaned into the turn like a real ryder would have on a motorcycle. I think the older 80's version the ryder was stationary.
