Looks cool. I didnt like the handling of maxum ff, perhaps those were better? Looks like its layout is a little more like a Yok yrf2.

I wasn't in love with it at first, but after some motor/pinion changes and some good tires, I was doing well with it.

I've been digging around the net for a while now trying to find out all I can about the Ryuz FF buggy (which after reading a lot of this stuff is really called a Kanda). I found a couple of interesting Japenese websites with more pictures and details. It's a bit of a rough read even with Google Translate, but still very interesting.

Heres a link to more detailed pictures of the buggy. http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/nikonfejp/30794178.html

This one is about the Rabbit Racing Team which came up with alot of the FF buggies at the time. http://www.rabbit-racing.jp/aboutme.html

I hope somoene tries to reproduce a kit like this since I have no skills what so ever in this area. I would be in for one.

A young guy in the netherlands has made a kit to build one. You need a durango buggy as donor for the remaining parts.
Orb design. He has a thread in the "I made this" section in the forum at oople.com.
Expensive but designed and build with todays knowledge.

How about this one?

Not exactly vintage, but a Tamiya FF03 converted to offroad. I saw an old thread where a member here, Bloodclod, tried to duplicate it, but none of the pictures are working so I can't see the result.

Any idea what body that is?

Bloodclod's design was not a reproduction of this converted FF03. He made his own inspired on cars like the Kanda.
It was real nice. Pitty the pics don't work anymore.
I think he posted about the car on clodtalk or/and oople too. Maybe you can find pics there.

A wild guess on that body: something from team izarashi

I pretty much begged the guy who made that replica to make a few more and sell them (one for me of course), but he would'nt. He said it's too expensive and takes too much time. Bummer.
