it looks like it has a high center of gravity and would flip over on high speed turns

I think RCCA or Xtreme RC is going to have a review of the little TXT next month....that little truck looks killer too!

That thing looks cheap to me, like a toy or somthing. I would definantly have to drive one and check it out before I bought one. But who knows there probably a blast to drive.[/quote]

No offence like but it looks like the kinda rc car you would buy your 6 year old sun as his first car. Looks abit tacky like the Nikko Rc crap :?

I saw one on monday, it is so cute. It looks like a reg mini-z on styroids with a truck body on it. Maybe in a week or two. I might have to put it in lay-a-way. It does look cool. I think it is strictly for indoors.

I also had my hands on one recently. I was a little disappointed actually. I thought it looked kinda cheap especially when compared to the Mini-T.

IMO the Mini-T is a much better way to spend your cash. The Kyosho is cool but I think that its limitations would quickly make you tired of playing around with it.

Maybe I am wrong????

IMO, I think your right Chris. More for show than anything.
