Re: Kyosho Javelin re-re cage on original chassis?

In order to fit the wing on the rere roll cage, you need a custom soon to be made adaptor. Minsu Cho on Facebook is currently in the process of making it. Join my Facebook group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/optimaseries/

You will see the Javelin from the cover pictures has those custom mounts.

Re: Ultima Pro XL wheelbase?

Hey Buddy,

Just measured a Ultima MK1 vs an XL, and I can confirm the XL is 13 mm longer.

260mm MK1 vs 273mm XL.

Cheers!

Re: Javelin or Schumacher Cat XLS re re?

Javelin for bashing and small vintage races, but if you plan on racing it, and want to learn about how to dial it in, then the CAT. But for a novice, the Javelin is so much more precise and fun to built and drive. I would be scared to get a CAT for bashing, as you might bashing with it 2 or 3 times,...

Re: Javelin or Schumacher Cat XLS re re?

What makes a car a "racer" vs a "basher? Shouldn't a durable, fast, race-ready car also be great for bashing about? Bashing, I think means more of a carefree driving around without the worry of having to adjust many parameters for the car to run correctly. And I also think the Javeli...

Re: Turbo Optima Mid SE ?

Hello,

Nice find, and yes its a Turbo Optima Mid SE with Andy's arms and bumper.

Not 100% sure, but I think The Kyosho Optima Mid SE did not come with any motors...

Re: Turbo Optima mid SE

Hey Chuck,

What an awesome thread you got there, congratulations on a super detailed build!

I have build many Mids and Optimas, but never to that level! Then again, I have never tried anodizing parts.

Lots of great tips as well.

I cannot wait to see the end result!

Tintin.
