Kyosho Optima restauration

There's not much to talk about these days as it's winter season and most R/C Rally activities are set to 0. Nevertheless I'm quite busy with my winter restauration project, an original Kyosho Optima. Whoever put hands on one of those back in the day, knows how sophisticated and well-engineered they were. I finshed chassis-rebuild and started doing the shell. First step was stripping old paint with nitro fuel. As it was my first time stripping a lexan shell, I was quite afraid of damaging it, but it came out excellent! It is now waiting for the hardest part: painting! More pics to follow.

Indoor Offroad results


It's winter season and I'm doing mainly indoor offroad racing with my 2WD Buggy. Due to bad light condition on indoor tracks there are no photos available, but I just need to show off results from this weekend. I made it 3rd in B-finals in Modified class, which is one of my best results ever. Click on the picture to see the full results.
