    Turbo Optima Gold 1/10 Scale 4WD Buggy - KIT from Kyosho - KYO30619

    Version Info: This buggy is a KIT, and as such will require electronics, paint, tires and other equipment (see Requires below for details).

    After the dynamic impact of the Optima was felt across the R/C racing scene, the Turbo Optima launched in 1986 as the strongest machine in the series. Until now. In addition to larger diameter tires, large capacity pressure shocks, front & rear stabilizers and Le Mans 240S motor, the immortal Turbo Optima was modernized for 8.4V power and makes its debut as the 7th model of the vintage series. Key components of the Turbo Optima chassis have been redesigned to meet the demands of modern racing conditions and power sources, and share DNA with the Optima and Javelin.

    The new Turbo Optima is not simply a reproduction of the original and includes gold anodized parts that were optional upgrades on the original, gold shocks with dial adjustment of chassis height and new modern block pattern tires. Higher specs and design features deliver modern performance standards and visual impact that captures the magic of the original and it is backed by Motion RC's world-renowned customer service and technical support. Drive on!
    Wider Body Design

    The Turbo Optima’s wider body design (than the Optima) for compatibility with the 8.4V battery of 1986 has been accurately recreated. The packaging color scheme can be reproduced with the masking sheet & Decals included.
    New Chassis Design

    Simple design of the aluminum backbone-style chassis realizes high rigidity. 6061T6 aluminum alloy is used on the main chassis, shock towers and plates for superior strength and corrosion resistance. Countersunk screws reduce the number of nuts used and produce a flat finish.
    Load Change Protection

    The gearbox is equipped with a slipper clutch that protects the drive system from sudden load changes and is easily adjustable for compatibility with various surface conditions. Sintered alloy 48 pitch gears combined with high impact nylon gears can deal with the current power technologies.
    Modernized Aluminum Oil Shocks

    Aluminum oil shocks modernized with threaded bodies for dial adjustment of ride height while recreating the style of the originals.
    Gold Anodized Aluminum Components

    A total of 15 key gold anodized aluminum components that were "Option House" upgrades in the original such as main chassis, shock stays, side plates, and motor guard are included as standard.
    Improved Performance

    Stabilizers are equipped on front and rear to deliver improved performance through reducing chassis roll in the corners.
    Modern Block Pattern Tires

    While still following the style of the original, the new Turbo Optima features modern block pattern tires for evolved running performance. Stylish large diameter (50mm/2-inch) wheels have evolved into a one-piece design and are included as standard.
    Adjustable Rear Toe Settings

    Rear toe settings can be adjusted to 0°, 1°, 2° by changing out the bushings supplied. 12mm wheel hexes are secured with innovative set screw pins for reliable running.
