I'll definitely be getting one. I'm not too sure about the wheels, if I don't like them I'll use some originals with Marwan repro OT-66 tyres. Anyone know when the release of the re-release is due? This month sometime?

I've not been able to establish a release date from any of the online retailers so I just messaged Kyosho America regarding availability. I'll let ya'll know what they say.

I’ve read late March release date in some places and early April in others. Pretty soon either way!

Makes me chuckle (a little!) that it's Dec 21 and we're asking the same questions about when the next re re TOs will be available...! :roll:

I think Kyosho has been experiencing more than their fair share of supply chain issues.
Makes me wonder how they make payroll or keep the lights on when there's nothing on the shelf to sell.
Anyway, I certainly hope they're able to continue - Kyosho currently makes the best RC's in the industry.

Yup, I agree but at least the kits aren't microchip dependent. I understand a lot of the issues are just moving raw materials and completed product around the world but it would be good to understand if the Dec 21 estimate of next deliveries is accurate or just speculation from the retailers. :?

...and you're right, it would be a crying shame if Kyosho had to stop making kits because they simply ran out of money, especially when the kits are so popular right now.
