Default Kyosho Lancia Delta Integrale 16V

Last year i was searching online for bodies for my HPI Super Rallys when I found out that Kyosho made some rally cars with a 280mm wheelbase. Apparently this was in the early '90s....they made the Lancia Delta, Peugeot 405 and a Ford RS200 ! I also saw a Citroen Rally car from them as well!
I came across a guy selling a Kyosho Lancia body that was partially trimmed and the overspray film removed, so I snagged it up! Now, even though the wheelbase (280 mm) matches the Super Rally, the body itself is at least 1 inch wider than the Super Rally. So I figured I would mod some Nitro MT arms to fit and see how it works...I mentioned this to the guy and he said he had a chassis for the Kyosho as well as some parts....so I snagged those as well!
Well, when the package arrived, I saw that the chassis was partially assembled as well the diffs and bulkheads. The other parts were still in the original Kyosho parts bags! When I finally located some manuals, I found out that the chassis and drive train were partially assembled by the manufacturer for these kits! So it looks like i scored a new kit! Well almost...it didn't come with the GS engine, which was fine as I am no longer in nitro and the way the chassis is laid out, an electric conversion should be relatively painless! Also didn't get wheels or tires for it...but I got something stashed away that will bring out the beast! Lol!

Any who...sorry for the ramblings....let's get to the pics!

The first order of business was replace all the bushings with bearings....then crack open the diffs and re-grease! This chassis is based on the Nitro Thrasher chassis, therefore it's got 3 diffs! The front and rear diffs are connected via belts to the main drive shaft!
I haven't located a Delta manual, but I do have the RS200 and the Peugeot 405, so was able to get a grasp on the setup...
Once all the bearings were installed and the diffs greased up, I got the front and rear bulkheads bolted in. Then installed the arms, hub carriers and hubs, and all the relevant link rods. The suspension arms carry a set screw that allows you to adjust the ride height! Also got the shocks built and installed. The shocks also carry spring adjusters....

Some more pics!

And this is where it's been at since! Just haven't had the time to do more....
Planning an electric conversion, but more than likely a brushed motor as parts are hard to find....would also love to do an interior for it...

Ps..I was so eager to take the pics that I put the wheels on backwards! Lol!
