Kyoso Lazer ZX5  logo FS - This model has been discontinued and replaced by the Lazer ZX5 FS2

The new Kyosho Lazer ZX-5 FS was born out of a change made to the Lazer for the EP Buggy Japan National Championship were it took top honors by winning the event. Drivers all over the world have praised the improved steering and more predictable handling of the new car. With more mid-conner bite than ever before as well as improved jump handeling. It was not easy to for sure but there is a considerable improvement over the Lazer ZX-5 SP.

The improvement comes with a list of changes to the Lazer:
Saddle Pack battery configuration and 10mm longer chassis moves the wieght in the chassis forward for improved steering as well as stability.
KYO30078B Top
New chassis layout positions the motor and gears far forward in the car. This has proven to be the optimal position of mass and balance for improved steering and stability.
KYO30078B Motor
Newly designed front suspension (mainly from the Lazer ZX-5 SP) consisting of revised knuckles, hubs and lower control arms improves overall control angles.
KYO30078B Front Susp
Revised front and rear bulkheads lower overall CG (Center of Gravity).
Newly designed shock tower mounts are stronger and look much beefier than the original ZX-5's. These add some hight for the lowered bulkheads to keep the Lazer's long suspension travel.
KYO30078B Rear Suspenion
Revised rear shock body length (38mm) as well as Blue #68 rear springs and light yellow front springs #65
A newly developed Wind tunnel tested body tops it all off!
Many have asked if you can run Lipo saddle packs in the Lazer ZX-5 FS. Yes you can there are several things that usually need to be changed depending on the height of the pack. You can use some spacers under the battery posts to give the correct height and use the stock battery holder on the flat side. This is similar to what you needed to do with the old Lazer to fit Lipos. This is very simple to do.
Generational shift with the new chassis design will leave expert drivers breathless as it generates more speed than ever before!
With its heritage built at the top of the racing world, the famous LAZER ZX-5 chassis has undergone a complete regeneration. This model is based on the FS conversion kit and not the SP competition kit held in high regard by many competition drivers. The new layout features a 10mm longer wheelbase and the motor and spur gear are positioned as far forward as possible. This combines with the 3 by 3 battery layout to produce optimal weight distribution and results in ideal surface pressure to the tires for effective traction and sure-footed turning. The position of the motor and spur gear uses the normal reverse rotation of the propeller shaft to control counter torque. The dominant performance of ZX-5 was proven with four places in the top 10 finals of the 2008 1/10 EP Buggy Japan National and by many more drivers than any other model.
