Default KYOSHO EXPERTS

Ok Kyosho Experts..a guy I know has a Kyosho 4wd buggy of some sorts that I was hoping to find more info on. I don't have any pics of it yet and I'm thinking of trying to buy it from him because he has no idea what it is and it's been sitting forever. My best description of it would be an Optima but it is Nitro Powered. It is Chain Driven and has an old .21 on it. I mean old. I've been searching but all I've found that were chain driven were Electrics not Nitro. Any ideas what it is and what it might be worth? Thanks!

From the description I'll guess it's a Kyosho Vanning, but without a picture...

Here's a picture of the Vanning.

Vanning that's it. I am only mobile right now on vacation and it was too hard to look up on an iPhone. Lol. But if you need any info my friend could probably answer. I think he still has the manuals for it too.

Steve that is it! That's what it looks like. Only the one in the pic is nicer. Worth anything? Just thought it would be cool to clean up and shelf. Thanks!!

Well after doing more searches on the vanning, it found the Integra too. I think the vanning is 2wd and the integra is 4wd? They look the same though. I'll offer him a 1/5 of ripple and see if he'll come off it.

The Vanning and Integra are both 4WD - one has a cage and the other has a buggy-style body. The Mint Las Vegas is the 2WD version and looks very similar to the vanning. Perhaps that's what your buddy has.

This one has a cage and it's 4wd. I've seen the Mint Las Vegas cars on Ebay and it's not that for sure. Got to be the Vanning then if that's the one with the cage. Thanks!
