Default My Kyosho Turbo Scorpion

Hi!
Some friends gave me their Kyosho Turbo Scoprion as a gift, or go to the garbadge...so i taked it as a gift!




-I removed the 1985 eletrics and kept only the servo for steering, and brushed motor!

Installed a cheap GoolRC esc and some tx/rx i have laying around the house...
It moves...


-Did a 2 hours maintenance on the front, cause it as ugly and out of balance/maybe crashed a few times...and shocks were not working proprely!


-Painted the front bumper in black!

And grease everything like a mad man...and nows suspension works, actually dam GOOD!

Also made a first video...

I also cooked that ESC (not on video), my fault...lol (inserted plasticine on the rear diff to have some lock action, but the dam diff is open and works with the motor) puted to much stress on ESC and she gave up!

Well...excuse for better eletronics now!
I have the body...but don't know if going to paint it or keep it as it is! Actually is very stock, just needs a clean up!

Later!
