Kyosho 1/10 2WD R buggy Scorpion Kit #30613
This is the Kyosho Scorpion 2014 1/10 2wd Buggy Kit. The legendary Kyosho Scorpion is known for being the first truly scale looking R/C buggy that could deliver race worthy on track performance. Even 30 years after its 1982 release, the Scorpion has left a lasting mark with enthusiasts around the world, being one of the most highly sought after cars by vintage collectors. Combining the unmistakable look of the original with modern features and upgrades, the Scorpion 2014 delivers strength, performance and durability that cannot be matched by the original model.
A two-piece die-cast aluminum gearbox has been combined with a slipper clutch to protect the transmission and a gear differential to improve the durability and driving experience. Precision 48 pitch gears reduce traction pulsation for improved control characteristics, while the underside of the countersunk chassis has no protruding screw heads for minimal ground contact, increasing durability. Stainless shock shafts and aluminum shock bodies offer a smooth shock stroke from top to bottom, and a majority of the self tapping screws have been replaced with improved lightweight hex machine screws for easier maintenance.
Like the original Scorpion, the 2014 is packaged as an unassembled kit, but the transmission and shocks have been factory assembled to simplify the build. So whether you are a veteran racer reliving the magic of the early days of R/C racing or a modern day racer that wants to experience the thrill of racing the vintage class, pick up a Scorpion 2014 and see why the Scorpion deserves its reputation as one of the greatest cars of all time.

Absolutely wonderful re-release Kit by Kyosho. The components of this Kyosho kit are extremely well made. The blister "retro" packaging is greatly appreciated too. You can tell that they took pride is releasing this kit again nearly 30 years later. Lots of alluminum and die cast parts mean that it will last for years and years of acceptable use. Great to get some friends together to purchases these and start a vintage buggy club. The price tag is good too! Definitely a 10/10 kit from Kyosho, runs extremely well with a brushless system. Instructions are very clear to understand too :)
I got this and the Tomahawk rere a while ago. I am glad that kyosho now does reissues too as these are a trip down memory lane for me. Love the extensive amount of metal and the overall quality of the blister pack which we don't see in the kits of today. I could go on and on but it's easier for you to just watch an unboxing video on YouTube. Rcmart's prices are always one of the most competitive and they do an awesome job with packaging.
