Kyosho have introduced the new evolution of their Lazer ZX6, the ZX6.6. The new ZX6.6 is designed to meet the increased demands of the modern racing scene for more power and higher grip. While maintaining the control response and maneuverability the ZX6 is renowned for, the ZX6.6 has undergone a minor model change to keep its leading edge in racing performance. For increased traction and stability on high grip surfaces, the optional aluminum HD main chassis is included as standard. Changes around the center gear from the slipper clutch to the diff realize smooth traction on all road surface conditions for superior surface tracing and control characteristics. In addition, the introduction of the gullwing type rear sus arms from the Ultima RB6.6 allows longer shock stroke for improved surface tracing through corners and performance over surface gaps. These changes combine to lift the overall performance and result in a improved total balance of the machine. Available in November.

After unveiling the Inferno VE ReadySet, Kyosho have introduced his little brother, the DBX VE 2.0 ReadySet. The convenience of 1/10 scale mixes with 1/8 scale performance levels in the DBX VE 2.0, and is now equipped with the latest in R/C control technology. Precision detailed setting is possible through throttle end-point adjustment for accelerator and brake, and steering dual-rate adjustment for steering angle that augments the standard throttle and steering trim on the included 2.4GHz Syncro KT-231P transmitter. Linear steering feel is delivered by the new torque-type KS4031-06W steering servo that resists kickback from the road surface. In addition to superior control, the new DBX VE 2.0 is equipped with a colorful printed body with white motif and high-vis neon yellow wheels that light up the track. The chassis features aluminum parts anodized in signature gun metallic and is equipped with the Team Orion power source of the former model. 1/8 scale racing buggy tires combine with long wheelbase and wide tread to deliver excellent stability to extract the full power of the brushless motor under any conditions.

Kyosho continues to explore its collection of the most famous buggies and bring up to date with its reissues. Following the re-release of the Beetle, the Scorpion, Tomahawk and the Optima, the next on the list should be the Turbo Scorpion if we believe a picture that has leaked on the internet. No information about the Turbo Scorpion is available yet but it seems obvious that it will feature some additions and improvements over the Scorpion such as a possibility to use a powerful brushless motor which was not possible with the Scorpion.
