Correct, the Circuit 20 series were all quick for the time using any Enya or OS Max .20 size engine. I like the Datusn 240 Z Fairlady but, they are hard to find.

It would be cool if they did a re-release for these older vintage nitro cars, till then I'm doing my best to get my original back out on the various terrains.

I remember the Thunder Tiger from the times, it was similar to Kyosho but, my Racing Baja was just a total blast. I'm really looking forward experiencing that once more. As you mentioned they are not cheap and very hard to find parts for! I had to build my own roll cage and roof panel, till I find my original parts that went missing?

Great looking cars! It’s exciting to see the evolution that Kyosho has done, going from the Circuit 20 to the Circuit 2000 with front and rear double wishbone suspension and mid engine placement.

Vintage looking they are. When compared to what else was available in 83, for 1:8 off road use I think this was in a class all alone. It was a monster sitting next to my 1:10 Tamiya Brat and such different driving experience. Tamiya was all plastic and light while the Kyosho was all aluminum and heavy.

A modern gem! You need to put in a few laps if possible to understand just how fast and well balanced that ProSC 4x4 was. I just love those mud flaps!!!

Thanks, it’s taken over 8 months to track down various items I have lost and I’m still missing a few small items. As for the engine I thought it would unbolt and rotate 90 deg to get the fins to line up with the airflow, the bolt pattern does not allow. The engine would be better off in a Landjump or Las Vegas Mint that utilize the side mount vs inline. I will keep an eye on the temps while at the track we built.

Wonderful images! The gold rims and the sand super wheels give it a nice look. Vintage Nitro does not get any better then Kyosho.

Thanks, it does have a unique look, somewhat “shocking” and yes the drive is completely different without them. It took a long time to track down replacement shocks as mine were seriously worn out. The rear tires I ordered from your web site as my originals were rock hard, and a HUGE thanks on getting the upper roof roll cage technical specs.
