Default Kyosho Turbo Optima Re-Release?

Hey Guys,

Loving the release of the re-release of the Optima, but wondered if anyone knows whether Kyosho intends to re-release the Turbo Optima version?


Thanks,

Raz

Raz, are you on Facebook? You might go over to RC Car Action Magazine and post the question to them. If anyone might know what Kyosho has planned, they would.

Bob Barker would have you on that one .
I wish that was the retail price.
Retail Price (MSRP): $559.99Your Savings: $200.00Your Price: $359.99 (street price)

My thoughts...just a little bit too much for what you get. I pretty much had myself buying the re-re Optima, until sticker shock. Basically, that's why I passed on the re-release Optima. Kyosho has always had great quality kits, and I hope the Optimas do well (selling). Nestalgia is the driving force for these re-releases. It's hard to fight it sometimes.

For all that jump on this one, I'm sure you wont' be disappointed.
