Vintage Kyosho Found in My Attic

Post by Velocity_Stack » Thu Oct 13, 2016 12:27 am

Since I've been told to move on, that the relationship can continue no longer, I began to move my belongings.

As I'm in the process of moving my attic boxes, I get the R/C section, yeah, I pretty much know what's in the boxes, but then.....

In a R/C box of a vehicle I've never owned, thinking it's just parts, I find this Kyosho Assault

I didn't know exactly which model, but I knew it was Kyosho by the shocks.

Didn't take me long to find out, that's for sure.

I still have no clue how or when I acquired it, but I'm glad I opened that box that had a pic of a FWD off-road car on it.

I find it hard to believe that there is practically nothing on eBay or YouTube, being a Kyosho product.

I expect that from a "off brand", but racing in it's age, like AYK products, but a Kyosho?

A diamond in the rough is what I believe I have, maybe not, but it will be a great project in the years to come.

Sweet find! You get a chance to see if the engine turns over?
