You might consider posting/asking about this kit in the F1 thread that is part of the on-road section of RCTECH.net. Here is a link to that thread...

----------

I think I owned a version of that kit. The version I had was the Kyosho Target/Scotch Indycar. If it is the same version, it has a fixed front end that lacks any camber/caster adjustments. The rear uses a t-plate design that was specific to that model as the t-plate was also the bottom of the rear pod.

I raced this car on carpet oval with foam tires and it did okay. However I modified the car to use Associated king pins and a rear axles so I could use standard foam tires on the car. The only real bad thing about this car was there way to adjust the ride height. I think it was designed as a tarmac car where that wouldn't really matter. I've heard that years ago that they even raced these cars at the Indianapolis Major Taylor Velodrome.

At this point if I had this car I would treat it as a shelf queen as parts might be hard to source. If you are looking for the more adjustable version of this car, you should look for the Kyosho Impress. That car had a fully adjustable front end. I also think it came standard with rear pod side pieces that had ride height adjustments.

I did a quick search on the internet and found another forum where someone is discussing this car. There is a good pic of the rear pod without tires and you can see the custom hex that the rear wheels use...

Thanks for the info!
It would be a shelf queen. A car that old wouldn't be competitive.
