Gallop 4wds

Anyone know of any other kyosho buggies that have the same or similar rear gearbox as the gallop or progress? Any cars have parts that will work or interchange? Thanks

Only progress and gallop, and gallop mk2. They are distant related to scorpion, but not sure how much.

Not very much relation to the Scorpion, as the 4WDS was designed by Shigeru Hino/Hidenori Tsuno and the Syuwa Kogyo Co., while the Scorpion was designed by Akira Kogawa and the Auto Model Co.

Yeah, I was just grasping at straws there.

I have a plan as to making a Gallop into a runner, and I'd like to replace the gear diffs with ball diffs.

Happy to get any suggestions as to what might fit (with modifications)!

I would suggest trying a thorp diff for old scorpion,, but its a long shot,, and a very expensive 1. As above, the cars are not much related, but its possible a common gear was used.

Ok so we've found out that an Ultima ball diff can be fitted. One shorter dogbone and correct bearings (or adapters) are needed.

Does it have to be assembled inside the gear box?
