Kyosho America: "The new Scorpion is scheduled to be released in the late June to July timeframe. The kits are very reasonably priced and they’re sure be become part of the historical landscape of the emerging vintage racer landscape."

Let's hope their interpretation of "very reasonably priced" is the same as ours, but I don't have my hopes up....

Such a great looking car. My first was the Rough Rider and I wanted a Scorpion so bad. This will be fun I think. So it says they accomodated modern batteries but it's a nimh shown so is a lipo in question? And if it's going to be a runner I would not want to mount the steering swervo back there. Maybe it's pointless as the original tranny would explode with a lipo and a 10.5. They also say the tranny comes assembeled and the shocks too... oh my.

I hope they sell a lot of these kits - then maybe they'll do a re-release of the original Optima.

If this sells, I have no doubt they will go that route (wishful thinking) and when they do I will buy many.
