    Late response:( i can sell an empty box, but the shipping cost will be very high. Allthoug, i have a lot of turbo optima mid parts, i can out inside. Nevertheless, here is a short video of my USA 1:) https://youtu.be/OndAZtUDy30

    Thank you, i bought the saurus from germany:) needed the wheels and tires, since they are the same as the zr1. And they are expensive:) might sell the saurus body then.

    i think it was released in the early nineties. and it is one more car with this chassi, a lamborghini diablo. and yes, the wheelbase is adjustable:)

    Is there a optima mid-based corvette? i thought it was only a 2wd nitro ultima-based model? have a lwb optima mid chassi, perhaps i should make me a corvette 1/10? at least i have an 1/1:) Anyway; the jaguar xj220 is a joke. doesn't handle very well, very poor 4wd-design, little opportunities for cooling because of the interior-design and it's heavy. Here are some pics: Again: this car belongs on the shelf, where it's staying forever unless i put it on ebay:)

    Just added some pinstriping. Looks like i have parkinsons, but not to bad actually. It will look good on the shelf:)

    Sorry for no recent updates, but here is the finished usa-1, and my new, almost finished kyosho. I even painted the interior, turned out great. To bad the jaguar xj220 chassis is some of the worst kyosho has ever come up with. At least it looks great:) best regards oddster

    Had to fabric the rod between the front and rear steering, it seemed impossible to get it anywhere. Used 4mm rod and bent it:) 99% fitment, good enough for me, works perfectly:) Oddster

    of course, here are som more photos: lets start with one NIB, with a NIB transmitter: And 2 swb's, one shelf queen, and one runner. the one in front has 6,5t bl setup. 2 lwb, the one in left is mostly complete, have body as well. I just haven't finished it yet:) the right one mostly for parts. porsche and BL blizzard/heavy metal (well used actually, very fun to drive! and last but not least: my runner with 2 cell lipo. have tried 3 cell as well. very fast And a LOT of spare parts which i didn't take any picture of:) it's very likely to break something when you drive a swb optima mid brushless:) best regards oddster

    I hava a bit of a collection of old kyoshos now i think, a Porsche 911slant nose, blizzard (heavy metal) (brushless and waterproof), and several turbo optima mid buggys. One NIB and one runner, with 6,5 turn brushless 3cell lipo. It's fast:) My latest addition is a USA-1, bought from eBay. a bit dirty and ugly body, but a great base from a complete rebuild and shelf-queen:) No critical parts missing, but a lot of the tie rod ends was broken. I have a lot of kyosho-parts, so replacing them was no problem. There is a shaft from front steering to the rear steering, which is missing. Can't seem to get it anywhere, so i bought a 4mm rod and will try to fabricate a new one. Wish me luck:) I dismantled the whole truck, and washed all the parts in the dishwasher to get rid of the sand. someone have had some fun at the beach here.) I really think that the building quality for this truck is extremely poor. but i'm used to optima mids and had a tuned up traxxas e-maxx a few years ago, so the quality of the Usa-1 was good in 1990 i guess. anyway, got a new body from TBG, and new grille, bumpers etc. and painted the body. The only thing missing now is some hardware for fastening the body parts and pinstriping. And i do want to test the truck at some point:) oddster edit: fixed pictures:)
  13. Just finished my other turbo optima mid.. with mini-z buggy chassi:) My 1/10 runner is currently on 3 cell lipo and 6,5 turn brushless motor. In the video it runs on 2 cell.. the speed is ridicilous, just the way i like it:) And i have run about 15 packs of 3 cell now, and nothing has broke yet! High quality build:) The only replacements is ball diffs and ot-85 is replaced with a steel/alu gear. best regards oddster
  14. If anyone wondering, the top speed of my Turbo Optima Mid with 6,5 turn brushless&2 cell lipo is 47 km/h. Quite decent, and i don't know if i should try 3 cell.. any suggestions? It's okay to drive, and it's not "too fast to handle". But a coworker of mine thought the speed would be like 70/80 km/h. In other words: either my garmin forerunner has high failrate, or the car looks faster than it is, due to size https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/770780766 best regards oddster
  15. Sorry! It should be public now:) regards oddster
