I got the email from Kyosho America earlier today that said they are now in stock, but when you go to the Kyosho America website page for the Scorpion 2014 it says "Not For Sale" next to availability. What? I would post a link but I'm too noob to do so per forum rules.

Here are some picts of mine. Received it from AMAINHOBBIES on Saturday. I recently scored a LeMans 240S motor.. Same exact motor I had in my original yellow tub cox scorpion.

I'm a little undecided about what colour to paint the body. I always felt the all yellow was very dull. My original was red and yellow, which matches ok. Black will make it look like a bee. I'm settling on Tamiyas PS-30 brilliant blue.. What do you guys think?

For the ESC I put in a Tamiya TEU-104BK that came with FAV for now. I plan on buying a Tamiyas TBLE-02S, since it allows you to go back and forth between brushed and brushless motors without changing out the ESC

$205 out the door

Had it for 3 days now and I haven't broken the seal yet.

What are you people doing with yours ? Keep it in the box ? Build a shelf queen ? Run it ?

I'm thinking about replicating this one. Seems like yesterday I was there.
