Kyosho have been working on a new 2wd Stadium Truck and today they have shared some photos of the new truck without the body. To this point, Kyosho hasn’t released many details on the new rig, so the pictures are a nice treat. In the pictures you can see an aluminum chassis, quick disconnect wheels, rear or mid motor set up, a steering bell crank system and threaded big bore shocks that have bleeder screws. Kyosho hopes to have the RT6 in hobby shops just in time for the winter off-road season.
I really like the look and style of this truck, but I do wonder about the shock caps, in the photos they look plastic. They would be easy enough to change, but I am not sure why Kyosho would ship the Ultima RT6 this way. I have no experience with Kyosho nor am I a RC design expert, but metal bleeder screws with plastic shock caps just doesn’t seem right. I hope I am wrong and I look forward to seeing the Kyosho Ultima RT6 up close and personal.
