Default What on Earth is this please ! (Kyosho)

Can anyone tell me what Kyosho model this is? There is no marking whatsoever on the box, only part no. 31394X and there is no manual.

Is it a GP10? I thought those were belt drive, this is shaft ! It does say Kyosho Copyright 1994 on the box, so I guess it is a model from around that era.

I'd love to know what it is !!

Thanks, here's a pic of the box:



And another:

it's not a GP10... might be loosely based on a super10... looks like a shaft drive.

Did you try the Kyosho USA website? They might even have a manual online.

I believe it is a Kyosho Alpha GP Rally version.

Does the Super 10's not come with the GX12 or 15 engines?

Thanks for help, I did try the Kyosho site but as I don't know the model, I can't search very far - all I have is the part no. (that Kyosho don't recognise) The other search terms I used were "Calsonic" and "Skyline" There are a few of those but they are all GP-10 belt drives, or Super 10's (belt drive) - this is shaft drive and quite a bit older I think.

This car has the GS-11X engine although it seems a last minute upgrade by Kyosho as the box says, "Powered by a .10 engine" with a "Now includes a GS-11X engine" sticker on the box.

Any more info appreciated !

Thanks

GP

Sorry, the Super 10 IS shaft drive, but quite a bit different to mine when comparing the chassis, I think it must be based on it though.
