About their products
Not only is Kyosho noted for their RC cars, RC nitro cars, RC radio cars, but they are also a huge
die-cast replica manufacturer. However, their RC cars are the key to their market share. They produce cars in the following scales - 1/8 scale engine cars, 1/10 scale engine cars, 1/10 scale electric cars, 1/50 scale electric earth moving equipment and Mini-Z racers. These scales are replicas of modern and vintage body styles and provide a near exact likeness to their scale-sized older siblings. Mini-Z cars The mini-Z cars may be the brightest spot in their inventory though their other products are arguable just as fascinating. The Mini-Z car are micro-replicas similar to the Nissan NSX and Lamborghini chassis styles which are dynamic and spitting images of the real thing. Quick, agile and easy to control, these models are a blast to engage. The larger scale replicas such as the Mini Cooper and their racing chassis offer an exhilaration of speed and spine tingling control. The Kyosho RC cars are built to last, but similar to other cars, there are always break-downs or unfortunate accidents. Rest assured that replacement parts are available.
