    Turbo Scorpion 1/10 Scale 4WD Buggy - KIT from Kyosho - KYO30616B

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

    As the 5th model to make its return as part of the vintage series, the ever-popular Scorpion released in 1982 was re-launched 2 years ago and has undergone a detailed overhaul to match modern performance with retro styling. The new Turbo Scorpion remains true to the essence of the unique Scorpion design throughout, but features Scorpion-style wheels in the larger 2.2 inch modern standard wheels for improved off-road performance. In addition, 12mm oil shocks based on the Optima deliver rock-solid running stability and excellent damping characteristics that work in combination with high-grip front and rear tires with a 20mm wider front tread and 10mm longer wheelbase than the original Scorpion to realize improved control and handling performance.

    With a thorough modernization, the new Turbo Scorpion is ready and willing to accept modern-day power sources and compete on modern race circuits. The standard Turbo Scorpion is a fully optioned chassis configuration and is ready to take the punishment that goes with hard driving and it is backed by Motion RC's world-renowned customer service and technical support. Drive on!
