What are you people doing with yours ? Keep it in the box ? Build a shelf queen ? Run it ?

I'm thinking about replicating this one. Seems like yesterday I was there.
Do that. A bit original. Don't keep it in the box.

Beetle would be nice, I always thought it looked like a cool alternative to the Sand Scorcher. Never seen one in real life.

I have the TBG beetle body.. its a bit goofy. The challenge with it is the front body post mount.. the original is not available whatsoever. For the rear mount you can use the sand scorcher / rough rider body clip

Fronts: you can use almost any wheel that uses bearings.. So long as the inner diameter of the bearing is 4mm.

Rear is a bit tricky. You can use the Tamiya re-re rims.. That's what we use to do back in the day.. The surface area for where the drive hub presses on the back if the rim was somewhat small.

The re-re does use a pin to secure the hub. So you could try to replace that with a hex and uses spacers.. May work.

I'm sure eventually someone will come up with adapters

Great kit. High quality as usual with Kyosho. Mine has an MIP super diff kit, some titanium screws, a vintage Kyosho SPA 240WS motor, and a Pepsi Challenger inspired paint scheme. Waiting for the hop ups to drop...

Very nice. Looks properly vintage. I opened mine but haven't built anything. Kyosho big bores won't fit I can tell you that.

Nice score on the 240WS... I have a 240S in mine and a 240SB spare

Almost done. At the moment the driver is headless ala sleepy hollow. He is almost finished.

Cool deal. Glad to hear it! It's a fantastic kit. I briefly checked one out before sending them out.

Dig around his blog, check the front end spacers to move the shock towers out a bit. Makes it easier to put the body on and also puts the shocks into a better position.
