mr ed for the most part its pretty stock but in mint shape other than the 2 body's i had to strip as its imposible to find a turbo ultima body .i also am in need of some new turbo ultima rear rims for it.i have the fronts.mostly ive been putting my time into my optima's really.i use my optima mid with the jg body and chassis as a runner to get my kicks as you see i installed a mamba in it and it holds up well.i love the aftermarket stuff and dont need exact box cars.this kyosho stuff is too damn addicting.and some dude fireboy just has unlimited cash scooping everything up lol is he part of this forum?my ebay handle is hand_d15 so lets be kind to each other lol

Fireboy buys low and sells high. He will eventually abandon auctions if they surpass his profit threshold. Rear Turbo Ultima rims are tough to find. Took me years to find mine.

Selling Kyosho stuff isn't consistent. I placed optima on ebay a couple months ago and it sold in a couple of hours...had tons of questions. Prior to that, I listed a mid with all new parts (except for the diff gears) and it only sold for very little (which was more than I was expecting).

Same with the ultimas...they never seem to bring the price that they're worth...probably because of the Outrage and the 15-20 other kits that share the ultima platform.

The only "high production number" car that seems to be climbing in price is the RC10.
