Default Dude that's awesome...

That is the 2wd version of the 1/8th scale Kyosho Vanning.

It's called the Integra I think. Geeze that makes me feel old.

It has a regular Polycarbonate body instead of the stanard alluminum roll cage like most others, well some euro buggies has regular bodies.....Heck if I remember the names of those....

I remember dreaming of that car when I was like 10 years old....

Yes Kyosho's were 1,000 back then too....

That was before 4wd dominated and they really didn't know what was faster.

There weren't many of those cars made I do believe....

It looks like it's in perfect shape too....

Looks like an old Kyosho buggy to me but I can't say for certain.

Whatever it is, find the parts to complete it and stick it on the shelf.

It's a Kyosho Impacta Baja, circa 1985. Same as the Mint, but with a lexan body.

Here is a link to a copy of the manual:

Good detective work....

I would contact Jessie at http://www.landjump.net . He can tell you what it's worth and maybe help with a buyer. He knows more about those cars than anyone else I know.
