Kyosho optima??
bangstick

pic 1: the front shock stay is indeed 3rd party (drastic?) as the body, tires are schumacher; actually I made the same shock stay myself 20y ago and I must admit that it worked better than the original layout;the reinforced sus arms make me think it's a turbo optima actually;

pic2: optima with reinforced sus arms with front stabilizer, fitted with standard optima wheels and tires; gold shocks

pic3: optional platinum shocks at front (with special shock stay as earlier model), rear stabilizer and a 3rd party undertray (looks like the one for the optima mid); notice the yellow shaft in order not to lose them on race tracks ;-)

pic 4: same car as pic 1 but custom made radio plate and side plates, broken nose Ushape (classic), and schumacher cat xl's like undertray; ot-65 wing mount;

last pics show that the schum xl lookalike undertray was a andy's 3rd party;
all in all i suggest these were both regular optima but upgraded.

The turbo optima

Very beautiful one! Love the silver wheels; it's a pain to keep them clean though (they flake easily)

Actually, I've never seen the Yellow version built. looks like an early body mock-up Kyosho never released.
