  1. Hi, I know this is weird, but I am using a dt-03 chassis as a base to build something different based on a kyosho Tomahawk body And I am looking for some nice looking and also usable aluminium oil dampers. I thought about using the Ultima re-re or Optima re-re but are too expensive for this build, so I came out with these: https://www.rcmart.com/xtra-speed-aluminum-front-damper-set-for-kyosho-optima-2016-1-10-buggy-xs-om27001-00068009 https://www.rcmart.com/xtra-speed-aluminum-rear-damper-set-for-kyosho-optima-2016-1-10-buggy-xs-om27002-00068010 I really love these replicas from the original Golden Turbo optima, but I also have lots of doubts: Do you guys think these dampers are good enough or just a stupid copy? I I noticed the new Turbo Optima re-re has a different ones.. These replicas have a small c ring as the mechanism to retain the o-rings as the original ones had.. which seems quite outdated for today standards. Were these dampers reliable? As I asume these dampers, as a replica won't be top notch on feeling I was planning to replace the included o-rings with the red o-rings that new Turbo Op are using today, will they fit? Cheapo Dt-03 don't come with pivot balls for dampers, just some kind of flat screws with lots of play. With these dampers, on the Dt-03 body should I use pivot balls? Any idea of the ball size on the original Optimas? Any help is welcome. Thanks!
  2. Any idea why the optima platform sounds like a fighting cat? It feels quite different to any other car.. highly pitched I would say. Is it because of the chain? Does the belt version sound any different? Deeply trascendental question, I am aware
  3. Stuck on two restores (as is the way) and so time to crack this one open. My first NIB build since 1987. It feels great knowing I won’t discover half way through that I’m missing a part. I didn’t realise though that the Ladder Chain (OT226) was NOT in the kit. I’ve seen kits online where the same sticker and blister space “Option Parts OT226” is there with a chain inside. Are there two versions of the kit? Not to worry, I’ll build belt drive.

    Optima " Mid "

    I have been planning this for a long time. Now, the basic idea is done. I got a 3d printer and a cutting machine to make parts or plates. However, the biggest problem is I don't have a lathe to make shafts.

    Shock Collars

    Hello Again. As we all know there is a well known problem regarding the broken shock collars from the vintage Ultima,Optima and Scopion,etc red shocks. I was looking for alternatives without the need to change shocks and keep it as original as possible so I decided to test a cheap alternative. I found out that the Kyosho part #SC222-03 Shock Plastic Part set for the 2014 Scorpion and Tomahawk look like the vintage shock collar but have a thicker area where the screw holds. The collar is a little bit smaller but fits. The pictures talk by themselves. Here is the broken shock collar Broken collar next to replacement Top View Installed Part number
  9. As some of you know I have Kyoho Optima and Ultima projects in the works (annoyingly - see my other thread - I'm obliged to specify that these are both the 'original' Optima and Ultima buggies). I was looking for box art wheels and tires for both, as I intend to do both as close to box art as possible. Was having some trouble finding original Optima wheels in good condition but stumbled on an Optima rolling chassis that happened to be fitted with very nice for used condition box art Optima wheels... and paid less for the whole buggy than just a set of NIP wheels. I posted it to my showroom and am also putting up some pics here as well for you forum dwellers ... YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! LOL The one on the left is my first one, the right is the new one: Nice condition box art wheels! This is the first one again: Here it is after swapping on some parts from the newer one, and mounting the tires and wheels: With the original body... not bad! Can't wait to see it with a nice finished box art body.
