Hi

I stumble on this thread when I was look for some reference pictures for some Kyosho shocks.
And I have to join just to leave a comment on your Circuit 1000 thread. And that’s because you have some awesome cars on your shelf! I have a few myself, so I know what it’s all about, the love to this Circuit 1000 buggy’s!

Cheers
Lars

See this is where you have messed up Franco -aka- kyoshoscorpionkid. Should have shipped that car like you were supposed to instead of trying to strip it and ask for some more money. **smh** Tim could follow through with his deal... What happened to you??? I see you have a website.... http://vintagekyosho.com/

@ vwmicrosizer
Thanks. Two of them were nice when I received them. The rest were in need of some serious help. They are getting there though.

@ Timmy2Tracks
Good luck with that... I cannot seem to resist. lol


Let's see now. Got some new things over the past few days.




New set of alloy wheels.



A new vintage motor Kyosho Lemans 480T motor.



Driver figure, body, wheels & some mint Goodyears for the Tomahawk.







A brand-new Sidewinder body.



New Assault body, with driver figure...



... and finally a new Turbo Scorpion body.



A little Graupner catalog action for when it is time to do some more painting??


Thanks for taking a look. - Arco

Finished-up some more work on the Kyosho Circuit 1000 fleet this weekend. Reinstalled the proper mint "Sand Super" wheels and tires onto the Beetle. Put some "Goodyear" tires & wheels on the Tomahawk too. Installed a new set of spiked "Sand Super" tires, as well as a matching set of front tires & brand new wheels, onto my other runner Scorpion. Also went ahead and mounted up some tires on the new alloys while I was in a tire mounting and swapping frenzy today.

Here is the latest rebuild I have been wrenching on. Bought this Black tub "Cox Scorpion" buggy used and in serious need of repair. It has been totally restored and now sports a new front bumper, body, wing, roll-cage, Optima shocks, alloy shock collars, 480T Le Mans motor, "Sand Super" tires, and brand new billet alloy wheels. Everything is genuine Kyosho except the shock collars and wheels. The body is also fully trimmed and now ready for some paint.





















Looking a whole lot better now-a-days.

Thanks for taking a look.
