Kyosho Lazer ZX-5

on Dec 3, 2008
The Lazer ZX-5 is the culmination of Kyosho's 15 years of experience with electric 4WD off road cars... The Lazer was designed from the ground up as an off road electric buggy, not a 4WD on road sedan with longer arms and shocks... Although this model had been released for quite a number of years, nonetheless it still caught my attention because of the spec and features that it packed... The Lazer uses shaft drive instead of belt... The shaft drive chassis is designed to promote weight balance left to right as well as porper front to rear balance...

What really surprised me is the amount of item that came together with the kit... The Lazer came with 3 separated types of front gear case... A spool, one way and diff... It is really hard to find nowadays... Most other brand will only provide either 1 types of gear cases... Besides the gear cases, the Lazer also came equipped with Kyosho "Twin Cap Pro" shock instead of those plastic shock found on the Tamiya DB01 Durga or Baldre... Other than that, it also came equipped with rear anti roll bar and also anodized blue aluminum shaft and motor mount... Lastly, it also came equipped with a slipper clutch... What I can say is, it is really value for money because the selling price is only slightly more expensive as compare to Tamiya DB01... If you want to hop up the Tamiya DB01 to the exact spec as the Lazer, you can actually buy another Tamiya DB01 already...

This really is my new dream buggy...
