RC150 or 200 I believe. The chicken hopper tank was stock, that one has a different cap than I have seen tho. Usually a spring loaded flip up mechanism.

Yes, it is spring loaded, but no flip. But when stock then it is ok.

They sure look like Kyosho Platinums.

The platinum shocks came on the Turbo Ultima, Turbo Optima Mid SE and the Turbo Rocky.
They were also sold as upgrades under the Kyosho Option House parts.
There are at least 2 members, and maybe the only ones :D , that believe "Kyosho platinums are best performing, and looking of all time"
Sorry but I'm not in that camp.
If you rebuild them they can be quite nice however.
Parts are hard to find but it looks like you have most all of them.

The shock design is uncommon.
There is an inner as well as an outer shock shaft.
This may help visualize how they are built.
The two tiny o-rings that seal the inner and outer shafts can be prone to leakage. Hard to find also.
The condition of the oil will probably tell the story of overall wear.
The shock bladders can be hard to find as well.
The shock is 11mm ID which makes it harder to find parts.

That's a perfect diagram thank you. I have yet to disassemble them but fingers crossed lol. Maybe just listing them as parts is a better option for me. I am a Losi guy so Kyosho parts are really of no use too me

Don't know much about the 4wd Nitro On Road scene.
Belts say Kyosho. But couldn't find anything close while searching Kyosho.
Any guesses?
