Kyosho Javelin re-re cage on original chassis?

Post by mtbkym01 »

Hey experts

I’m currently in the process of rebuilding an Original Turbo Optima, and between that and my original Optima, I basically have another chassis in parts that I’m thinking could be used to assemble what would resemble a Javelin.

Now my question is, will the parts from the re-re Javelin fit onto my original parts. From what I can gather I probably won’t be able to fit a rear wing, as the mounts attach to the top of the gearcases, which will impede the side plates. Is there any other issues or maybe even a work around to fit a wing?

I look forward to any info and insights that anyone can provide

Cheers

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.

Ok that sounds great, my problem is I’m not on Facebook :shock: so can’t join your group.

So other than that, the re-re cage fits on the original?

**edit - just clicked the link and saw the pic, that’s awesome and exactly what I’d need, how long before they are available?

Yes, the rere cage fits just fine, but you also need to buy the OT-251 in addition to the cage.

The wing mount should be available in 2 to 3 weeks.

+1 on the re-re cage fit. I've dropped one on a vintage Turbo Optima. Still haven't sorted out the wing so could we please post info on the "adapter" here? (sorry, I don't facebook either).

Contact this seller on Ebay: pmg828

He is the one making the wing mounts. I have bought some from him. This guy is Minsu Cho from ParguStore.
