Guys, my FW-04 superten is for sale on ebay at the moment. Currently i will only sell in australia but check it out and maybe we could come to an agreement with post if your serious (depending on your location).

Would love to offload it asap!

Bringing back the Kyosho FW-04 as Kyosho onroad is somewhat dead.

FW-04 was my first real Kyosho car and a nitro car at the same time. Though I had the 4-stroke versions at first but the later with O.S engines 2-stroke's like the RX 15.

This is going to be under some renovations but I'm gonna keep pretty much as it is, a FW-04 Special edition Honda NSX.

Also pictured the Kyosho catalog from 2002 with the car and R/C car mag with this great "SuperTen Battle" article where they tested 2-stroke and 4-stroke versions head to head with options parts.

If you know where to get similar foam tires or any ideas for a replacement please let me know! Cheers

Welcome back to the boards, Mika!! Been a while since we last chatted. Good luck finding foam tires for the car as rubber tires are becoming scarse.

Hello Juan,

yeah it's been a while. Run 2wd last summer and it was much fun, have two of them.

I got this car from eBay Germany for less than 150USD to refresh my memories, back then they cost like 1000USD each.

Not sure if I gonna run this much, depends if I find decent tires for this.

Hello Mika; glad that you jump-started the 'board and brought it back to life.... !! You bought a 4 stroke Cross flywheel from me long, long ago....

Nice car, man! I'd LOVE to see the catalog you have with the 2st vs. 4st Superten; you said it's the 2002 Kyosho catalog, correct??

Yes, make me want to jump-start mine now. I picked up one with that was relatively new with a FS 26C fourstroke and Futaba 3PJS radio rather cheap about a year ago. Haven't fired it up since I picked it up.

If you can find HPI Super Nitro tires and rims, you should be fine. The tires are rubber and not foam but will do in a pinch (I have a Super Nitro along with a Tamiya TGX so I have tires for days).

Welcome back!

Wow this page hasn't been active since I sold my car!!

As far as I know, GPM are the only foam tyres available for the fw04, I've seen a couple of sets available in Australia still, will see if still there and might be able to hook you up with a set. No promises though....

My fw04 is an NSX special too, I just fitted almost every option I could though! Lol...
