New from Kyosho:

The new DBX 2.0 gets beginners off to a flying start as well as providing an ideal step up to the power of 1/8-class machines with the same long wheelbase and tread as well as 1/8 tires and wheels. The chassis features a 4-wheel independent double-wishbone suspension and fulltime 4WD drive expected of a true racing buggy and it’s optimally balanced with the power of the GXR-18SP engine delivering outrageous performance. Whether you’re timing laps around a 1/8 racing circuit or tearing up the local dirt track, the DBX 2.0 puts the adrenaline pumping excitement of real off-road racing performance at your fingertips. As the DBX 2.0 is packaged as a fully assembled Readyset, even beginners can be off and racing in no time at all.

Features:

  • The long stroke 4-wheel independent suspension and full-time 4WD drive-train powered by the 18-size engine means nothing can stand in your way. Fully-factory assembled and in a Readyset package for instant off-road excitement.

  • Multipoint Adjustments – Design features multi-point setting adjustments such as chassis height, camber, tread, front and rear toe-in etc.
  • Large 1/8 Wheels & Tires – The DBX 2.0 comes equipped with 1/8th size wheels and tire combo, resulting in a larger footprint and improved handling. Giving you the 1/8th scale feel and look in a 1/10th package. All current standard 1/8th wheels and tires will fit the DBX 2.0 standard 17mm hex.
  • Shaft Drive – The drive shafts run through the center for chassis to give you better lower CG and optimum weight balance.
  • Fully Digital Servos – Equipped with digital servos for great response.
  • Dirt Proof Radio Box – Dirt-proof radio box protects the receiver and battery. Can be attached or removed from the chassis with just four screws.

  • Power House GXR18SP – GXR18 engine mounted on 1/10 chassis that is normally seen with 12-15 size engines. Equipped with recoil starter, large cylinder head and tuned type muffler.
  • Massive 105cc Fuel Tank – Includes newly designed 105cc fuel tank to supply the large 18-size engine with plenty of runtime. Delivers stable fuel supply even under severe driving conditions. Can deliver run times of more than 10 minutes.

New Kyosho Syncro 2.4GHz System

  • Easy Access – The trim, EPA and servo reverse settings are located on the top panel of the radio for easy access, visibility, and to prevent accidental changes by bumping, knobs normally located on the front of other radios. The advanced nature of this design is ideal for beginners and intermediate drivers. Two position trigger neutral point allows a 70/30 or 50/50 neutral position for the throttle/brake trigger, making it ideal for both EP and GP vehicle.
  • 4 Channel Receiver – The advanced receiver design features four channels, which allows for future development and expansion. It also includes a fail-safe feature that will maintain control of your vehicle in the rare event of signal loss.
  • Ergonomic Design – The advanced ergonomic design is very comfortable and delivers superior control. The transmitter is powered with just four AA-size alkaline batteries, which makes the Syncro balanced and lightweight, which virtually eliminates the fatigue common with heavier radios
