Default just for fun

Well its been a while since I have mest around with one of these thinks. But my little boy is getting old enough to wont something more than just the cheap rc from the store. So we are building a repop of a kyosho buggy.




Sold all my stuff so i had to replenish it again.




Opening the box and laying it all out to get to building.







We stopped for the night with part of the chassis and trans done.

Going with a brushed motor for know. When the boy gets good at driving it, will get a good brushless set up.




Got the suspension done today.





A couple cool helpful thinks.


1:1 pics to help set mm measurements.




Little tool to help screw the rod ends on.

that brings back some memories :) love the Kyosho stuff. My first race buggy was a Kyosho Scorpion back in the early 80's, Kyosho released this one a few years later, great fun machines. Cheers mate, have fun.
