Has anyone seen any of the Kyosho 1/43 slot cars for sale yet?
On a French slot site there are pictures of a trade show featuring not just their cars, but also a track system(limited).
There is also the announcement of a wireless throttle for you modern guys.

No one could accuse that of looking toy-ish.
For the price I kind of expected interiors.....................................
Very nice indeed Mudchukka!
I don`t think the price is too bad.
Can`t wait to buy those 2 vintage Porsches!
Cheers,
Kev.
I agree a interior would look great but don't think you could have squeezed one in some how.



They have gone for the importance of getting a car that runs as good as it looks.

Hi Mudchukka, will you be stocking these in the UK? do you have a website please?

PS. why is the motor at a funny angle? if it was flat an interior would be easy

Hi Marlon

I am distributing the Kyosho Dslot43 in the UK so you should see these in some of the stores that sponser the Forum


If you have any problems getting them just PM me and I'll tell you who is stocking them.

The motor is at a angle because how they have designed the floating power unit with suspenion.



Here is a pic of chassis as we put the Pro Motor in.

what´s the difference between the normal motor and the "pro"?
any specifications like rpm or gcm?
what´s the weight of the RTR car?
which kind of tires are the stock tires? rubber, pur, sillicone?
Standard motor 11,200RPM

Pro motor 20,000RPM

Mudchukka
now i can understand the need for a "pro" motor
11200 are a joke
another way to get the money out of the slotters pocket


what the stock gearing?

Whoa!!!! I heartily agree, Peter! I am becoming less and less enthusiastic.

Peter, Chuck You guys are cracking me up!
Like you are not going to be fighting with me for a place in line to buy these!!!
Please remember that Kyosho have been WAY more interested in what makes a great slot car in this scale, then anybody to date & I am sure that once this first wave of cars is out they will start reacting to the waves of feedback. I am sure different motors, space for chips and/or interiors will all be possible improvements! One great thing about their chassis design is it's open framework leaves plenty of opportunities for modifictions and improvement that an then be retro-fitted to existing cars.

Let's not put the cart before the horse!

Guys surely its how they perform and not the size of the motor !

Also the price of the motor is no way like the price of a 1/32 scale motor.

Not going to be fighting, Mas. Not digital without motor changes. Not eligible for the LMP/GT/F1 Proxy with out windows and driver tray.
I'll buy one for the heck of it, but I don't sell 'em and a retailer is only loyal to their firm.

Is that clearance designed for a dune buggy coming ?

And I can´t believe that the only way to get a good running car is to build in such a slanting motor. If slotracers manage to construct chassis with flat lying motors I wonder why Kyosho doesn´t. They ought to know how huge the selection of small motors especially in Asia is...And if slotracers are able to find them, Kyosho isn´t ?

If I see the price of the Dnano BODY kits - and I suppose the D43 won´t be much less - I´ll surely stay with resin bodies and my own chassis. I just saw the price for a complete model is around $ 60 - at least in the KYOSHO online shop. No thanks.

Rolannd.
The cars are retailing in England at £23 for a road car & £26 for a liveried sports car. That`s not a bad price for the quality.
I`ve got the pre-order in for our club to run a series.
Cheers
Kev.
I am not sweating the motor too much; the 20,000 RPM is probably too much for my Nomag routed track anyway!

I will be buying any and all as soon as they are available!

I think swapping the motor and dropping in an interior to these will be easier then, putting clear windows an interior and a proper guide in a Carrera!

kyosho:
11200rpm @ 12V (?)
gearing: 8/20
reasulting in 4480 rpm at the rear axle

scx:
22000rpm @ 12V
gearing 8/30
reasulting in 5867 rpm at the rear axle

carrera:
[email protected],8V
gearing 8/30
reasulting in 7236 rpm at the rear axle

kyosho with pro motor
20000rpm @ 12V (?)
gearing: 8/20
reasulting in 8000 rpm at the rear axle

or you can push the stock motor to 16V and get 5973 rpms... but one thing for sure - stock car will not be too fast.

Very interesting.

So now, do you now the diameters of some standard rear axles, then we could compute max speed.
