I think you have a Yankee 1/5 scale with a turn force servo. They still make them but expensive.

if it has 2 shocks mounted so they are laying flat on the rear and agian on front of the vehicle, it s a yankee as noted above. you can occasionally find parts on the Bay, right now there are 2 Yankees on the bay, one is a rtr Truck with the F7 motor, and the other is a RTR Porche. maybe if you seach ebay for yankee in the rc area, you ll see these 2, and they can confirm or help see if its the same.


Kawasaki USED to make small motors like these, but im not sure if they still do.

i remember a friend of my dads has a Kawaski powered String Trimmer back in the late 70s.

Solloway, Your car is not FG, it is Yankee models model 1996, Yankee was a French manufacturer for 1:4 and 1:5 scale models, he was well known by 1:4 scale on road models and F1 cars since 1977, he use to manufacture very high quality models, in 1995 he produced buggy but he had no great success.

Yankee is the only company produced control box steering named TURN FORCE, I believe this is the one you have is your description is accurate.

Let us figure out with you what you have

1-Is the color of body is dark violet or dark blue
2-body made of PVC not polycarbonate
3-Fuel tank in the back of the car, down to wing.
4-Is on top of front wheels plastic cover separated from wheel
5-what is the color of pull start, it is big silver pull start and engine push stop in install on it.

the only thing that matches the yankee is the turn force servo but the fuel tank is in the middle of the buggy the pullstart matches your description but did yankee ever fit kawasaki engines or is that just something somebody has done to it over the years
