Default F10 ?

Hi guys I have what I think is a Kyosho F10. I thought it was 1/8th but from what I've been able to find out it is actually a Super 10. Can anybody confirm that its a F10 that I have. Any information or parts would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

Its an F10 Sports Proto. It is Super Ten size (Between 1/10 & 1/8) This was the full body version of the same chassis for the F1 car called the F10.

The car is rare and parts are even more rare. There was even an electric version of this car with a Panoz body. (Extremely rare because the electric was Japan only)

Go easy on it if you want to run it for fun. If you want something for bashing, get something else.

Thanks I bought this on a local auction site. Paid $103 for it thinking that it was 1/10th because of the single picture taken from a distance used by the seller. I could also tell it was Kyosho because of the logo on the rear wing. But couldn't find any information on it anywhere. It's missing the muffler and rear body mounts so I guess its going to be a major mission finding those parts.

Do you have any idea what year it came out?

Thanks again for your help

To my recollection it was somewhere in the early to mid 90's when Tower Hobbies (Great Planes) still had distributorship of Kyosho. You best bet is to get a manual for it and find part numbers for the things you're looking for. You might get lucky and find it as spares for another car that is not so rare.

Once again thanks for taking the time to answer my questions I really appreciate it. I don't suppose you have any idea where I'd find a manual?
Cheers
