Apparently Javelin is next, but not for some time. Oh well, patience is a virtue.

I would guess Optima before Javelin..

Did you here something from someone at Kyosho?

Says who? Hopefully that is not true. I have little to no desire for a Javelin.

The guy I spoke to knew someone at Kyosho, but later told me that it was only a chat and nothing positive that a Javelin was even planned. I agree that it would make sense for the Optima base to be rolled out first (assuming Kyosho thinks there's a market for it).

Seems like they're testing the waters a bit based on the success that Tamiya and Associated had with re-releases.

I have mine on order from Tower for $249 less $35 for tower club members. Once upon a time that would have been $40 off from tower.. these days; they're only giving 14-15% off to club members.. Business must be good.

Amain also has it listed now.. $249 and $25 off

So I just picked up a Scorpion to use for some vintage racing. What are the must have spares for this car? The class I will be running in does not allow any hop-ups; must use the kit wheels+tires and a 540 silver can.

Am I more likely to be snapping alloy arms or bending hinge pins? Should I be looking at spare screws and small parts that are likely to come lose rather than large parts that I might break? The track is fairly flat with only some small jumps, so I don't expect to break much; but would like to be covered just in case.

Cheers,
Scott.

On my original turbo scorpion i only broke a tie rod and striped a spur gear. The shock collars broke too. But the rerelease fixed that and the gears with the slipper...

The new arms are forged aluminium.. Doubt you will snap them on a track using silver cans. The only parts you will break will be cosmetic parts like role cage and rear motor guard. Otherwise it's a pretty durable chassis.

Those side guards, is that what they are called and is there someone out there who sell alloy side guards?

Can you use modern day rear wheels on the rear rims? Or are modern wheels the wrong size?
What kind of dampers work with the original front stay and with the long damper stay in the rear?
