Here is my 12e. It cleaned up really nice. I made a new radio tray. I was able to get the motor in nice running condition; it has the original Edinger in it. It's nice to see what kicked off so many people in the hobby.

Kyosho Progress. New built with electronics.
Everything working perfectly included the four wheel steering and torsion spring assisted front suspension :wink:

I've been busy this year but I'll play.

This started out as a $25 Frog parts car, then evolved into the Brat/Blackfoot hybrid you see here.

The original Frog chassis, transmission side plates, and battery holders have all been painted. The front and rear control arm mounts, MSC mount, and front body mount have all been polished.

The rear uses the middle Frog gearing, "Old Frogshot" modded diff, and re-re Blackfoot CVD's. The shocks are Duratrax with Tower springs and Frankentruck plastics.

The front is a Frog/Blackfoot hybrid, used BF carriers and uprights (modded for reduced bump-steer) with a Frog style spring system. Springs have been replaced with lighter and longer versions.

Other upgrades include AmPro center servo mounts, rear skid plate, and shock mount/body mount braces (for BF).

Electronics consist of a Tamiya receiver, Hobbico servo, Dynamite esc, and Tamiya motor.

Wheels are from a Stadium Blitzer (slightly modified fronts), with Blitzer front tires and Trenchers on the rear.

Kyosho Outrage
I completely disassembled and thoroughly cleaned this car, I'm not sure it was ever run.
