  1. They all live on the shelf but I try to run them all.

    How do these shocks work?

    Look like RC channel shocks. I have a set on my Ranger, pretty good quality. I've had them a few years & no leaks.

    Kyosho Scorpion 2014 lost Goodyear logo

    Paint in the sand super letters instead. The good year logo wears off when running after a while.

    Orv gearbox- 28mm shaft???

    I needed a hard to find gearbox shaft once. I cut the shank off of a drill bit.

    Orv gearbox- 28mm shaft???

    As said above, the diff will fail quickly without it. If you do make one up then use hardened steel.

    Marui shogun body on tamiya

    Wheel base & shock layout is close enough on the Optima. The battery is mounted length ways in the Shogun, would the Shogun body be wide enough to fit cars where that battery is mounted width ways? Need someone to measure the width.

    I've fitted those on mine. Perfect fit, way more traction than the original tyres & the softer side walls improve the handling.

    Quick Kyosho Raider rebuild

    You could drill out the grub screw, but that could be very tricky with the motor in that position. The other option is to carefully lever or pull the pinion off. Once off there will be no tension on the grub screw & it should unscrew alowing you to fit a new one. I've had to do this before myself. If you are carefull you wont damage anything.

    Quick Kyosho Raider rebuild

    I've got three models with this gearbox, RS500 & two Rockys. Seems a real pain at first but then you get used to it it pretty easy.

    MCI racing do a good repro set of the integra decals.

    Must have Kyosho?

    I have both the Javelin & Scorpion remakes. Fantastic to drive superb & build quality. I fitted the belt drive when building the Javelin, although chain drives are great for nostalgia the belt is much better for running.

    Wild One axles

    I have the 53908 universal axles fitted in mine, works great.

    The Kyosho Raider and its bizarre steering set-up

    Yes the OTW125, got a set in the front of a rocky, works fine.
