Default Wat is it? its made by kyosho.



i thought it was a kyosho Optima, ultima or a graupner. but every one has something different from mine.

its a chain driver 4wd kyosho buggy. i assume the shocks and the fiberglass board isnt original,along with the rims n tires.

i always wanted to restore a old kyosho ,this would be a good a start, but first i wanna know what it is ,so i can find parts , or sell it to build other projects.

if any one knows what it is, and has a pic of what its supposed to look like , plz post !!!! thanks

looks like an optima to me, with an aftermarket/home brew chassis.
the wheels and shocks are not original.
