Default I need help...

Can anyone tell me what car this is? No one seems to know. All I know is that it is from Kyosho maybe early 80's

I'd appreciate any info or clues. Thanks

Looks like a BMT

I think one or two of the guys here still have cars and spares etc. Mint condition (Nostalgia)
They has 3-speed gearbox as well.

I may be able to get a copy of the manual.

I know Picco had some kind of deal with Kyosho for a while. It looks like the 1/10th Picco-Kyosho car to me. Maybe 1992 or 93.

It does resemble a old Picco/Kyosho.

Turns out it is a Picco RS-600 Compact.

There is a Picco RS-600 1/8 version and the Picco RS-400 Compact which is the 1/10 235 mm version.

I found this picture in an auction for the same car. the upper deck is slightly different but I think whoever owned my car changed the upper deck to carbon fiber.

Now I need to get some unmounted 1/8 scale foam tires.

Any sources or contacts out there please post... Thanks for all the help!

These two threads lead me to believe it was a Picco. Thats how I eventually found the picture you posted.
