Some information has come out but there is not much detail at all about a new AWD, MA-015. New electronics with Gyro control option, Tiki Tiki, was as much as I could interpret. Also, looks like a new ASC, Honda HSV010, Honda NSX TypeR and other repaints. I'm sure there will be more information to come.

there is already a thread for tiki tiki, there is already a thread for new autoscales. lets please consolidate to existing threads where possible, or link to them for continued discussion.

yes, there is a new product number for MA-015 (http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36364) however i don't recall it being a drastic change or anything really surprising or even new for that matter.

actually, found that kyosho page is a mistake.

the MA-015 is simply the standard AWD with the new tiki-tiki board. apparently it takes the gyro as well.

Arch you posted a message about the MA015 with some info on it with a "NEW RELEASE DATE" of 2008 and when I replied to it, my message disappeared
Again Im asking why you would post something as having a release
date in 2008 as being brand new?
Am I missing something in the message or was that a misprint?

MA-015 is not MR-015, but an AWD with Chase Mode board.

I know Eugene, but if you read the orginal post by Arch It quoted a release date of June 2008!
Plus if you look at the orginal post now
He edited that release date out of his message!
Im not the only one who saw it either, another guy saw it before Arch locked it up and deleted the messages!

I saw it... and it was probably what Kyosho sent him... which was the wrong information about the product...

Some quick googling and here's what I found.

And chassis pics.

Very exciting. 03 tiki-tiki board means no reverse delay.

Believe Arch's other post referencing MA-015 with picture of MR-015 is because of the typo on Kyosho's site HERE (http://www.kyosho.com/eng/products/rc/detail.html?product_id=103642).

Arch, if you see this, you may want to fix that thread by changing MA to MR.

Good find there XMODCANUCK! I too Googled yesterday, but found nothing other than mislabled MR-015.

ugg, take note where it was posted before jumping to conclusions. it was not posted in new products. and yes, it was copied from kyosho's website which, as we all know, is in fact a typo (i've already notified the webmaster). i'll simply delete the offending post as it's erroneous anyway. replies were deleted as is customary for intro info on a chassis type. see all others, they are the same. this is nothing new, just got replies before i could close it. why the ordeal over an inconsequential issue?

Well Arch I posted a message inquiring into it after another driver
did the same thing
Next thing the messages disappear and the thread is locked
What would you think then?
No problem tho
I got my answer

cascading series of errors and overlapping of posts:p were all good and posts corrected.

looking forward to what will be shown during the hobby show!

no one is in trouble, sheez. i meerly pointed out that there are existing threads on the subjects being reposted about. rather than end up with half a dozen threads on the same subject, i posted links to the existing threads. no chastizing, rebuking or anything took place. if anyone took offense to me pointing out the obvious, it's by misunderstanding.

i've done this plenty of times... in most cases though, it gets replies and then i'm merging threads. i end up merging at least one thread a week. everyone's cool, please continue:p

And for those who can't wait, I see something else new on that page for NT $7,000
http://www.sjhobby.com/front/bin/ptdetail.phtml?Part=30530

I'm only partly sure what NT$ but it looks like it converts into $245USD!!! Ouch.

But it is also on Kyosho's site now as well.

Doesn't seem odd, or bother anyone that Kyosho designated this the MA-015 chassis, when there are zero chassis changes? The electronics have been changed, that's it, and has not effected the chassis design.

Any other time a new chassis designation has been made, the chassis was truly new. Maybe I could see a justification for a MA-010, that had the DWS, but even that is not the chassis itself, so maybe not.

agreed, bit of a stretch if you ask me to give it a new number simply because of a pcb update and new top cover. god knows how many updates racer chassis has had over the years. (i'd love to see all the various pcb versions documented though)

I actually would like to get this. Seen videos of it and it looks awesome! Especially video of it on RCP track. I wonder what hop ups they will have for it? And will there be different types of tires like compound and treads?

I was very lucky today to try one of the pre-production bikes at my LHS in Singapore.

It was on loan over the weekend from the local Kyosho distributor.

Suffice to say, it was very different to drive compared to a 4 wheeled car, the lean angle is maintained after the steering wheel is returned to center.

The model is a loaner and has since been returned to the distributor, but it was a very interesting experience to say the least :)

the tinting of the chrome finish is not ideal. the plating is very thin so it's still very light weight.

is this all alloy? or anodized plastic? either way, this is sick!

Plated plastic. Less flexible but still a thin mass of plastic.
