Found this at a local car boot sale. The car is complete and looks like it's not had too much abuse apart from the missing rear wing. Came complete with the box and instructions. I checked it over and noticed all four red shock clamps were intact - virtually unknown on a runner Kyosho!

I also spotted the problem with the tyres and wheels. The original rears are now fitted on the front (loads of wobble!) and a pair of original Avante wheels are fitted on the rear. All four tyres are split badly and have already been binned. Not a problem, I have plenty of spare wheels and tyres to sort this one out.

Not sure what to do with it now though. I bought it to fit the shock clamps on one of my Ultimas, but I am loathe to dismantle a complete car in this good condition just for a couple of bits. I might have to look at making some alloy shock clamps to replace the red ones to keep the car in one piece.

Looks a little strange with the Avante wheels The complete setup Pretty good condition under the body




I've got the little-known Outlaw version of that same chassis; with a couple small mods you could make it into a neat little stadium truck like mine.
