Kyosho Ultima DB 1/10 RTR
Kyosho Ultima DB Electric Powered 1/10 RTR Buggy
Proven electric powered chassis design digs deep for real desert racing action.
The excitement of dual-purpose performance, delivered in large size.
Experience the real excitement of 1/8 class racing performance that this dynamic lightweight chassis delivers. Capturing both the form and running style of the ever-popular desert racing buggies of America, the ULTIMA DB reproduces the spirit of fun and action. With the Ultima RB5 2WD racing buggy at its core, the ULTIMA DB features a 60mm longer wheelbase with a deep stroke suspension system for more rough road stability and a powerful yet easy to manage G20 motor. The special tires create a distinctive scale appearance as well as delivering dual purpose off-road and on-road performance. As a fully finished Readyset, the included ESC with its initial setup already complete can be used with Ni-Cd, Ni-MH or Lipo batteries (sold separately). Just load your battery and switch the power on! The heart of electric buggy racing beats strong in the ULTIMA DB and is more fun than ever before!

Kyosho Ultima DB Composite Chassis
The chassis plate is 40mm longer then the RB5. Light and strong, featuring a specially formulated carbon fiber composite for the best balance of performance and durability. Strategic braces molded into the chassis enhance the stiffness without adding any unnecessary weight. Separate front and rear clips allow fast and easy removal of the front and rear end of the car, which makes maintenance and repair much easier. Designed to accept stick packs and 2 cell lipo packs, the DB chassis features an adjustable battery mounting position that allows you to shift weight bias to suit track conditions and your driving style.
Kyosho Ultima DB Transmission
The new transmission features a smaller, more compact housing that keeps the motor as low and close to the transmission as possible, which reduces CG and improves bump handling. The three- gear transmission features a new heavy duty SP idler gear an sealed gear box with 4pcs metal bevel gears.
Kyosho Ultima DB Rear Suspension
The rear suspension are symmetrical so a single replacement arm can be used on either side of the truck, saving money and space inside your pit box because you don’t need to carry as many replacement parts. The inside of the arms are attached to the chassis using separate suspension mounts, which will allow anti-squat adjustment. Vertical ball studs for the both inner and outer rod ends of the upper link means the rear suspension geometry can be fine tuned with shims.
Kyosho Ultima DB Front Suspension
Symmetrical suspension arms connect to a narrow front bulkhead. The bumper/skid plate, suspension block, nose plate and front bulkhead all come together to form a very rigid assembly, to which the front suspension arms mount to. The standard position of the suspension mount produces 25 degrees of hinge pin angle in the front arms, but simply flipping the suspension mount increases hinge pin angle to 30 degrees. The added flexibility of having adjustable hinge pin angles means you have more options when it comes to setting up your truck. Like the rear arms, a single replacement arm can be used on either side.
Kyosho Ultima DB Floating Axles
While floating axles ride in bearings that are mounted in the nub instead of the wheel, this moves the weight of the bearings inboard for extremely more responsive suspension. The bearings are under less stress, and they’re better shielded from the elements.
Kyosho Ultima DB Steering Assembly
The steering bellcranks are mounted on the chassis at the same angle as the suspension arms. This eliminates bump steer and produces more accurate Ackerman geometry throughout the entire range of steering motion. The steering plate (center link) features horizontally mounted ball studs, which mean the Acherman can be fine tuned by using shims behind the ball studs offering a nearing infinite range of adjustments.
Kyosho Ultima DB Captured Hinge Pins
A simple button head screw captures all the outer hinge pins of the Ultima DB. The rear inner hinge pins are truly captured between the suspension mounts, and the notched inner front pins are secured with a setscrew through the front suspension mount. This means that the hing pins are much more secure and less likely to come loose.
Kyosho Ultima DB Shock Towers
The front shock tower is mounted as far back on the chassis as possibly, as are the shocks, to keep the mass as low as possible. The rear shock tower is also designed to keep a low profile, yet allow enough suspension travel to ensure the best possible handling. The shock towers are molded from an exhaustively tested composite, which is much more costly to produce than shock towers made from woven graphite, but will also provide greater durability.
Kyosho Ultima DB Threaded Composite Shocks
The composite shock bodies feature a threaded spring pre-load collar for quick and easy adjustment. The threaded adjuster features an O-ring that prevents the preload settings from moving, which ensures consistent performance from start to finish.
Kyosho Ultima DB Fan Cooled 20 Turn HP Motor
High performance and longevity are the key features of the G20 motor. It has an internal cooling fan so the motor stays cool and strong from run to run.
