Always fancied one of these.I was at high school when this appeared on the front cover of Radio Race Car.I had saved a few pennies for a new car and was looking at the Ayk pro radiant, this and a mardave marauder as my first nitro exploit.Of course being young and stupid I bought the marauder :( ! fast forward 15 or so years, So I was talking to triplespeed on the phone when I happened to mention I would fancy one of these but the only one's that came up where a bit junkiefied. Of course he just so happend to have one and here it is. They where based on the raider just modified to take a saloon shell and wheels. I still think kyosho did a good job of making the plastic wheels look alloy.The raider was the kyosho version of the hornet and this shows in the handling but I think this makes it more fun to play with ;) As for the size, the buggy to saloon conversion makes it more of an 1/8th scale rather than 10th.



If anyone has the issue of Radio Race Car with this on the front, I have cash waiting!

Really must cut the grass ! Grows fast this time of year!

Looks great- so sweet to buy a car that has significance to a period in time. Enjoy it!
