    Loving the look of this new Kyosho, I’ve been running gas buggies for a long time but getting too old to be bothered with the mess etc so want something that is quick and easy (and it helps if it looks cool too). This might well be the solution as I’ve already got plenty of LiPos from my helis…. Hmmmm, not going to tell the wife :)
