Kyosho Ultima DB 1/8 Electric Desert Buggy - revised
Sorry for the confusion - this is an updated version of the DB video with a
clip added to show the large scale of the Ultima DB compared to the Ultima
The Kyosho Ultima DB brings scale back to electric racing in the form of a
modern off-road desert racing buggy. it's large 1/8-scale size comes from
the Short Course platform of the Ultima SC, but it's not just the same
truck with a new body. The Ultima DB features a very scale body with a
rugged and functional roll cage. The cage attaches to the chassis at six
points and withstands very strong impacts without body damage. The solid
roof panel is and roll cage are made from a very durably molded composite
that will endure much more punishment than an standard body. It also
features a rear motor and transmission guard to protect against rear
The Ultima DB comes completely factory assembled - even the body is
trimmed, assembled and the decals are applied. You simply need to install a
Ni-MH or Li-Po battery of your choice, attach the body, and you're ready to
run. In spite of all it's user-friendliness, the Ultima DB is a current
design that has the benefit of the World's most experienced RC racing
engineers. The Ultima RB5 and RT5 are at the core of the Ultima DB, which
means it not only looks great, it's shares the same DNA as the race-bred
vehicles upon which its based.
Sharing many of the same parts as the Ultima SC, the DB can use most of the
replacement parts from the Ultima SC, and its relation with the RB5 and RT5
means that most of the optional high-performance parts are ready to be
The Ultima SC is already on its way to proving that it's the best
performing short-course truck on the market, with commanding wins at the
2010 Silver State at the hands of Joe Pillars, and recently the 2010 Cactus
Classic, piloted by Mark Pavidis. All of the performance of the SC is
preserved in the Ultima DB, and it's got the added benefit of a modern,
scale desert racing buggy body. There's simply no better value and
performance that you can find in one package.

Edit April 2012: I have had heaps of questions regarding the video. Despite
what Tamiya, Spektrum or Futaba says, it is possible to configure your own
radio to work with the MFC-01 (or any other Tamiya multifunction unit).
What you need is a four channel radio that has dual rates. Dual rates have
two settings, 0 (off), 1 (on). In 0, have your travel range set at 66%, and
in 1, set it to 100%. Run through your MFC-01 setup with dual rates set at
0. Thus, when you engage setting 1, you access the special functions. You
will see me flicking switches during the video. That's me activating the
Hope it works for you guys, because it works in every single one of my
Tamiya models that use an multifunction unit - Tiger, Pershing, Leopard,
Panther, and Scania.
