Rudebits are proud to introduce the DB1 Kyosho 2WD buggy conversion kit. Designed by David Burton, an experienced engineer and former BRCA nationals winner, the kit combined the front end of Kyosho’s Ultima series buggies with the rear end of the Lazer ZX-5 line of cars. The result is a low centre of gravity buggy with front motor and rearward placed saddle packs, driven by an inertia propshaft to overcome the disadvantages often associated with an inline motor placement.
The kit includes seven carbon fibre parts such as the 2.6mm chassis, top deck, U-shaped support, LiPo battery braces and LiPo retaining straps. Also included is 20g a brass LiPo centre weight, under LiPo weights, alloy battery posts, weighted inertia propshaft, Shadow body shell, front alloy posts, decal sheet and setup sheet. Not included are the front and rear end of the Ultima and Lazer, motor mount etc. The buggy that required a low-profile servo is available for pre-order now.
