It pays off to live in Southern California; not only is the weather nearly perfect, but we also find ourselves stumbling upon top-secret factory team testing on a routine basis at the local tracks. We dropped by one of our local hangouts and ran into the Kyosho team testing their newest creation—a 1/10 scale off-road electric stadium truck unofficially named the “Kyosho RT-5.”

Kyosho reps stressed that the truck in our photos is still highly pre-production and in full testing mode.

  • The RT-5 is based upon Kyosho’s popular RB-5 electric buggy.
  • Overwhelming customer feedback and requests for an electric truck convinced Kyosho to build the RT-5.
  • The RT-5 shares the RB-5’s transmission and tranny ratio.
  • A longer chassis, longer suspension arms, and longer shocks are used.
  • Double-thick carbon-fiber shock towers seen in the photos are undergoing testing; production versions may be molded, fiber or carbon fiber.
  • There is NO official release date yet, but Kyosho will debut the RT-5 in mid-March at the Cactus Classic in Phoenix, Arizona.
  • Kyosho’s engineer will travel from Japan to attend the Cactus Classic for further development
