Kyosho has announced the latest in their Ultima line of competition buggies. Called the Ultima RB6, the vehicle boasts a "further development of the breed," bringing enhancements that should make it "a strong choice as the car to beat for the 2013 season."
Set to be available as a kit, the 1/10-scale 2WD package includes an unassembled chassis, a clear body with masking, wheel set, wing and a complete manual. You'll need to throw in the motor, ESC, battery, radio and tires, so make sure you pick them up before leaving the shop.
The Kyosho Ultima RB6 2WD includes a 7075 anodized aluminum chassis with a longer wheelbase (13mm more) than the last-generation RB5. Two motor layout setups are available in the kit (rear 3 gear and mid 4 gear), allowing you to optimize the vehicle depending on the track and terrain you're racing on. Battery tray is compatible with short, straight and saddle packs. Features include reversible rear gullwing suspension arms, velvet-coated big bore shocks, downforce "Blade" cab forward body, X-Gear differential lubricants, a super low center-of-gravity design and an all-new front-end geometry.
You can get the Kyosho Ultima RB6 2WD starting September, with an MSRP of $649.99.
