Kyosho collection

Recommended Posts

As some of you may know I ve started collecting kyoshos. After completing my ta04 collection my avante collection and astute collection I ve started on kyoshos. So here is my first fully  restored functional fully complete runner : a kyosho lazer zx. 

I managed to buy 3 lazers here are two as I received them

Nice looking chassis. And I like the ZX-R shell, as the original ZX shell was a bit dumpy looking.

I like the front tyres, too. Do you know what they are called and who makes them?

Thanks for your encouragements ! 

Yep the zxr body does look nice but it will be going on the real zxr chassis I m building. The zx chassis will have the zx body and wing as soon as I finish painting. 

The wheels are the original zxr and will go on the zxr chassis as soon as I source some tires for my zx wheels. I have no idea about the tires ???? They were on the wheels when I got them but I must admit they look cool and they are still nice and soft so I ll be looking for some more myself, if I find some I ll let you know.

I manages to acquire this nib kyosho pureten ep spider and I plan running it. Should be a worthy comparison with my tamiya ta04 fleet.

Nice Lazer zx. Have been bidden by the Kyosho bug too, and recently completed the 6 Optima Mids, so wonder if it is time for the Lazers too for me.
