We hope to be able to post live from RCX tomorrow (Sunday), but for starters, we managed to get exclusive access to some exciting stuff at the Kyosho booth - see dNaNo.org (http://dNaNo.org) for pics of the dNaNo Exposed! :)

While most of the excitement was centered around the dNaNo (http://dNaNo.org), there were also some new Mini-Z items on display.

Here are the new Escalade Overlands...

Honestly, the coolest part of the show has been "meeting" people in real life who I've "known" for years - John/RCP, Philip/PN, Tim/Kyosho, Rod/SRC, Rod (NML), Brian and Russ/SLC, Joe and Cristian/RR, Scott/Pro-Z, Willy, Jimmy (Akura2), etc. Chatted extensively to Steve/R1WURKS, and had a superb (not to mention gigantic) Chinese meal w/ the PN family (thanks again for dinner P!). Didn't really get to look around much other than the Kyosho and RCP booths, but, hoping to rectify that tomorrow (today :eek:). :cool:

Want more pictures of the Dnano's chassis. Detail's of the suspension, motor, et'c. More body pic's et'c. Like, how it's mounted, all the bodies that are available for it, hop-up parts, and what the package that it'll come in look's like. Also, will Kyosho make more Leman's style bodies? I love their 962 and plan on getting the Mazda soon.

You saw the pics we posted on dNaNo.org, right? I'll try to get more detailed pics today, but packaging etc. is well documented there. :)

It won't let me view the pictures unless I was registered and logged in. :(

thanks, shame there is not a camera over the rcp race track area specifically, like there is for the rcp crawler track

myscoobysti
2008.04.20, 11:35 AM
Yeah, I know what you mean.

I just don't understand, since the cam is co-sponsored by Kyosho, why can't they have it nearer.

2008.04.20, 11:46 AM
yep, you miss alot fo the fun stuff in the interview cam. no cam at the kyo booth it seems either? poor planning of good techology and coverage i guess. seems they could have had good coverage of hich traffic/interest events like the rcp racing. i'm sure the interview cam was supossed to be just for well, interviews but you see from a distance what looks like some very fun stuff going on

the crawler cam is awsome!

What really makes me sad is seeing nothing new for the awd mini-z specifically.

other than pn showing off thier new sway bars and some form of grease dampers of some kind?

the new mclaren f1 is simply awsome! i'll also be getting the escalade to dust off my overland

What are the "combo kits" shown on the left side of the RCP booth all about?

I like the black FFX car, that look's sweet!

mini-z
2008.04.20, 09:13 PM
Oh! Ok, I see what you mean. How does it work?

So, the lube just kind of sits on top of the pin and acts as a sort of reservoir to keep the pin juicy - same as how we put the 30000 on the MR-02 king pins to give it that dampening effect. :)

2008.04.20, 09:46 PM
Hopefully it will be a cleaner system then putting grease on the knuckles. Would be worth the LESS hassle.;)

Anyone have pictures from the F1 race? There were a few people talking pictures of pregrid and grid pictures.

thanks.

I checked all my pictures, I didn't have any of the F1 Races as both Russ and I were racing in that race.

Hope someone else will post them up if they have them.
