No official US release yet, but Kyosho Europe is showing off the FO-XX, a 4X4 RTR in nitro (GP) and electric (VE) flavors designed for Formula Off Road action–which is pretty intense stuff, as the video clip below shows. Both versions of the FO-XX feature the rugged solid axles and vertical-plate chassis layout Kyosho originally developed for the Mad Force lineup, so you can expect heavy-duty construction perfect for the rough and tumble action these trucks are screaming for. Kyosho’s full specs for the nitro FO-XX follow the pics. No info on the EP version yet, but we expect it will be equipped like the current Madforce Kruiser VE.
