Default Kyosho Landjumper?

Hi.
Is the Kyosho Landjumper a good 1/8 scale buggy? Is it worth getting?
I got a deal on one RTR, with a OS .21 engine..

Kyosho's website doesn't contain any information for a vehicle called the "Land Jumper". Are you sure that is the name for the vehicle?

Well, I will ask around, and see if I can find anything.

Because it is discontinued, you're going to have a very hard time finding parts for it! I think you'd be better off buying a car that you will be able to fix things once it breaks..

It's a Kyosho Landjump (not Landjumper), and it's a 2wd 1/8th scale buggy from the Mid-80's.

I think you're better off with a Hyper 7 RTR or something along those lines.

the landjump is 4wd ... they were made as 2wd too, but earlier than 4wd ones..
i found a great deal on one, its 4wd (looks more like vanning..). if the car still runs really good, and its in good condition, you think its worth getting?

I really don't think so..you're better off getting a newer car that will have parts support.

Florin, how much is the guy selling it for? These are very rare and are worth a pretty penny

Florin777,

That's surely is a deal for $100.00 especially you metioned that its an RTR. I would get it for collecting purposes and or for playing around.

The Land Jump is a rare commodity. It would sure be nice to
have one of those. The Roll Caged Shell and the Chain Driven
power train is awesomely vintage.

Does it still have the lexan made driver on it that sits on top of the radio box?
