Kyosho Inferno NEO

Kyosho Inferno NEO

New from Kyosho:

With an unrivalled record of 7 World Championship crowns, the Infernos dynamic performance has been sharpened and refined to produce class-leading value and unrivaled ruggedness, suitably named the “Inferno NEO.” Featuring the Infernos signature adaptability to any surface, the NEO features 3.5mm big bore shocks and the same heavy-duty wheels as the high performance MP9, fitted with all-new micro-square pattern tires. Composite torque rods front and rear achieve an optimal balance of flex and rigidity for excellent performance and yet still maintains a smooth comfortable driving feel that can only come from decades of refinement. The newly-designed aerodynamic body delivers a bold new look and sleek aerodynamics that look as fast as it runs! The NEO is packaged as a factory-assembled Readyset, which means you just need an igniter, alkaline batteries and some fuel and you can be charging along at full speed in minutes. The NEO simply puts the ultimate off-road performance within reach of all drivers!
