Kyosho Blizzard ID and Info Please

Post by nvxwax »

Ok so i got this Blizzard from a member at ClodTalk, I was shocked when it arrived in such good shape, Looks to have only been run once or twice.

Can anybody tell me what version it is? I know its nitro but is it like a DF...

Id also like to convert it to brushless, anybody ever done this? Any help would be appreciated

I think its a DF300 if that sounds right. Does it have a GS11x in it? I would love to have one of those they look just plain cool. I would leave it nitro but thats just me. Of course if it was brushless and it had a plow on the front that would be awesome.
Those are my toys and no I will not share!

It was listed as a GS11R, I have not looked at the motor yet, I have never had any luck with nitro lol, I might give it a try again, maybe this one will work out for me, I had a Revo 2.5r and it was nothing but problems, then i got an OS TZ motor for it and it was better but still a pain in the butt lol

When traxxas went to a composite carberator they were asking for trouble. Just ain't right. The OS TZ motor is a very hard to hurt motor. Newer carbs don't seem as user friendly as the older ones (think cv-r and before).

Those blizzards have always been one of those 'must have' oddities I seem to be drawn to. A brushless conversion in there would be simple enuf. Not sure about the 2 speed but the rest looks like it would be pretty straight forward. Nice example of an old nitro blizzard though. Keep us posted on what you do with it NVX.

Thanks guys,

I might give the nitro a shot lol, I have been watching the Blizzards on eBay for the past 2 months, They all went for around 250 and up in good condition, I got this one RTR for 185 shipped from Hawaii, and the condition just makes the deal that much sweeter lol

You got a nice deal. That's a pretty clean Nitro Blizzard. They are a lot of fun in the snow. I have a Blizzard DF300 and run the crap out that thing when I can.

It's not a DF. Yours is the version that came right before the DF. I think it was just called the Nitro Blizzard. The electric version of the time was the Blizzard EV.
