Details: The Turbo Scorpion is BACK! Kyosho is proud to reintroduce the car that many vintage experts regard as the first “real” racing car in the 1/10 off-road racing category. There were Kyosho cars classified as being “off-road” before the Scorpion, but it wasn’t until the release of the Turbo Scorpion that a car that had all of the features considered necessary, were in included in one kit. This kit is faithful to most features of the original car, but there are some components that have been upgraded due to improved materials, more sophisticated manufacturing processes or just a desire to improve the breed. The car features 6061T6 aluminum frame rails with front and rear trailing arm suspension that features cast arms also cast with 6061T6 aluminum. At the rear is the transmission that is factory assembled, and it features steel 48-pitch gears with a slipper clutch. The “tub” under the lightweight lexan body and upper cage is home to the radio electronics and electronic speed controller (purchased separately). La
