Ya i love old kyoshos. my first was a TS (like duh if u didnt see my SN) I have an old OPTIMA turbo (need to redo some stuff but think its all there). a Turbo Ultima, and an Ultima II.

Iv wanted a USA 1 since I was a kid but worry about parts availability... (it took 2 years to land shocks for my TS!!!)

a Blizzard or Heavy Metal is at the top of my list too.

Kyosho had the innovative designs and the build quality was just fantastic.
Had a certain beauty in form and function...

Other than that, you don't need any aluminum "option parts" because they all come in the box as standard. The only parts that aren't aluminum and have aluminum options, are the upper front hinge pin holder, and the front caster blocks, but both are not needed from the get-go whatsoever. (IFW406 is the hinge pin holder, and IFW412 are the caster blocks). I would suggest building the car box-stock except for the shock pistons, then put Cody's 2010 worlds setup on the car as a base and tune from there.
Thanks for the quick reply. Would you recommend Orion motors or OS? Also, Your profile says you live in fullerton? Is 1/8th scale racing popular there? I guess Cody's setup is the go to huh? Seems like what most people are running here.

Os motors are overpriced and they aren't lasting very long for some guys. The Orion motors are very finicky but they run great if you can get tune right. I wouldnt buy either one. I would buy a novarossi or a alpha

Does anyone run the rear aluminum chassis brace? Is it worth the money?

No and no. Those are the quick and easy answers.
If you're really keen to try one, I have an almost new King Headz rear alloy chassis brace which I'd sell you for next to nothing, I've had it for at least 18months and used it perhaps 3 times, maybe just 4, can't remember.

But if you're really keen on the idea, let me know and I'll give you a great price on it.
