    was wondering if anyone has been able to find or has used anything to replace the original aluminum final opinion on a Kyosho Gallop or Progress. Any help would be great.


    Thanks in advance.

    Hello. The counter gear shaft is 4mm. It's worth investigating kyosho part number 90677.

    It's available in 3 sizes, 14t, 16t, and 18t. You can check it out in ebay. 


  2. Hi, let's answer one by one:

    did the Optima mid come with a motor? If so, which one?

    Yes it did, LE MANS 240 ST

    Also, mine has metal bushings except for the 2 diffs which have bearings, did it come with all ball bearings?

    Early versions of Optima Mid came with metal bushings evrywhere except the diffs. the one you have is the early version. later it came with ball bearings everywhere.

    the early version manual is here: http://www.vintagerc.../optima_mid.pdf

    and the later version manual is here: http://www.retromode...mid-kyosho.html

    From an online manual it should have come with a mechanical speed controller, but I cant find any, if anyone can confirm that it did come with a MSC can u post a pic of it so I know what to look for?

    It came with MSC, many photos can be found in tamiyaclub showrooms: http://www.tamiyaclu...a mid&offset=20

    One last thing, mine came with the Kyosho platinum shocks, I think the turbo optima came with them but I doubt mine is turbo (has dogbones at all 4 corners and no sway bars). So I need the gold ones, but shouldnt the platinum ones be the better ones? Thanks!

    the Optima Mid came with the gold shock, the priviuos owner probably changed them, from my experience the gold were better, but the platinuim were also good if they're not leaking.


  3. Hi,

    BS11 is made from plastic, its cheaper but not a durable gear. Even when using BS11 with Burns (the Buggy) it was weak, it'll not last for long.

    No clutch issue at all, I remember using a 11T clutch bell or 12T.

    but that was in 1992 to 1994, engines were putting only 1.2 to 1.5 HP, today even the economical .21 engine can put much more HPs that's why you'll not need 11t or 12t, just go with the standard 13t.

    if you can find and afford BSW19 (steel) + BSW34 then go for it and you'll have a bullet proof USA1.

    a more durable custom version of BS11 is here also:


    read the feedback also.


  4. Hi Alex,

    PR is for Peanuts Racer series, and this roll bar is the rear bumper of Fairlady 240Z version. see the attached photo.

    the tapered washer is not clear, maybe you can upload more photos showing different sides of it.


    Here are some old Kyosho parts which have me baffled...

    Anybody ?


  5. Hi Michael,

    to my best knowledge the Kyosho Rally Sports series were release in late 1979 (the manual was printed in 1979) and it last appeared in 1983 catalog.


    Thanks for the info. :unsure:

    Well, now i have had the ultrasonic cleaner going, and cleaned up the whole thing, swapped a few bits from one chassis to another, added an old Acoms Techniplus mkIII radio and reciever, and now it´s up and running with the original MSC and all.. LOL, what a strange car to drive, but pretty quick with 7,2 volts..

    Now i just gotta get a new bodyshell for it, but i will wait a little doing that, because i also have a Turbo Optima coming very shortly, which i would like to treat with new tyres and shell also.. That one will also be for running.. :D
