My old kyosho Turbo Optima Mid is now restored. I gave it white(the same color i had back in 1989). Everything original except for tires and bodyshell. This buggy is very special to me. It helped me win my debut race back in 1989. The great memories...
I bought it in Singapore with a years pocket money(savings) it was worthed it! It also came with a UP240se motor, Futaba megatech sport radio, Futaba mc112b esc and some crazy decals on them. check out picture 6 and 7. (really old stuffs)
There was also an Avante in my buying option but i chose the MID instead. it was a difficult decision as both cars were my favourite and the best from Kyosho & Tamiya (period). The optima mid was very popular and have great reviews from the racing scene. It certainly was reliable, quick and easy to drive.
For now, this is the best 80s 4wd buggy i've ever owned. I would like to thank 'integra fan'(decals) and 'ant0276'(bodyshell) for hooking me up with their excellent products. This restoration couldn't be possible without them. Thanks guys.
