Kyosho Sandmaster ST-2.

Never got to drive it very much, living in the city and not being able to go to any suitable locations.

Worked like a charm after i cleaned the engine and put it together this summer after 10 years or so on the shelf. Too bad my crappy rx system decided to lock up and fry the clutch. Got a new clutch lying but i was bitten and since then i have gotten a SCTE and started racing and competing, awesome!
