Default Kyosho Outlaw Ultima

I've been lurking around for a bit so I fugured I'd post up the latest project I've been working on. I'm doing a restore/restomod on a Kyosho Outlaw Ultima truck, which I once had as a teenager. It's 2wd and based off of the Kyosho Ultima series which included buggies, on road cars and trucks.

Here's a pic of what the original box would have looked like(which I don't have)


Here's an ad I found on you tube for this truck, @:58 sec

I also happened to be on the web searching for more info on older desert trucks and I came across Kyosho's inspiration for this truck. Seems like it's a pretty close replica to Robby Gordon's desert truck from 1989. Here's a pic I found off the web, not to much info out there about it though.


So I found a roller on ebay for a reasonable price and this is what I got to start the project with:


It was pretty dirty but seemed to be pretty complete. So I stripped it down completely and gave it a good cleaning. To my surprise it looked like it was only used a few times and then put up. Here's what it came out like after a good cleaning and reassembly.

I found that Team Blue Groove makes repro bodies for the Outlaw Ultima/Rampage so I ordered one up.


Trying on a set of HPI wheels and some shock covers I was saving.

I also found a company on ebay the makes repo Outlaw Rampage stickers which are almost identical except for a few minor color differences. Here's where I'm at now after painting the body and applying some of the decals.

Very nice - the body looks great! Has a nice vintage look to it.

I love the old Outlaws. My favorite is the raider outlaw. It has the Walker Evans dodge body and paint scheme.

I'll be following this build for sure.

I applied some more decals and found a set of wheels and tires to run.

Looks great! Good Job on this! I had the nitro version back in the day. Always liked these trucks!
