Talking Rear shock stay variants.

Fantastic thread that I keep coming back to. I wonder can you help clear up the mystery of the rear shock stay on the Scorpion variants, mine has the short horns (sc-13 I think) for short shocks and see that some of your buggies have taller horns. Which is which as it were and what sort of shocks can I easily get which will fit the shorter type? I'm finding replacement 10mm clamps to be very expensive.

No. I did not. I bet it was pretty neat though. I read a little bit about it. Wish I could have participated in something like that.

Thanks. Glad you like the thread.

This shock tower is custom made. It was made taller in order to fit the longer OT-43 Optima/Javelin/stinger shocks.





This car has PG-14 & PG-65 Gold Kyosho Gallop MKII shocks.



This car has a custom shock tower that is the same dimensions as the stock SC-13 part.
The Red shocks are AB-30 & AB-31 borrowed from a Kyosho Ultima/Assault/Advance.

CRP#'s 1526 & 1527 Cox/Kyosho Adjustable Coil Over - fit the original shocks that came on the Scorpion & Tomahawk.

CRP#1536 Cox/Kyosho Rear Shock (adapter) Bracket - allows you to mount CB-38 Kyosho Land Jump shocks onto a Cox/Kyosho Scorpion.

Hope this post has been helpful.
Respectfully - Arco

Talking

Wicked photos of the Tomahawk and thanks so much for the full run down of shock compatibility. Really helpful as is all this thread.

Smile Scorpion is a Beetle

Hi there, what tires would fit the yellow plastic beetle rims front and rear. Are there off the shelf items that can be used? Thanks in advance.
By the way it turns out the trashed Scorpion I bought back in 1988 was probably a beetle looking at some of the bits I got with it including a tub cover, body mounts and tall roll bar that are all knocking around with the spares.

I also am using an old Airtronics CX2P Caliber 2 ch. FM radio to control this ride.





I have been busy gathering parts to complete this buggy and here is what I have so far...

Nip SC-50 Kyosho Beetle roll bar and a reproduction front body post along with a reproduction rear body clip.



Reproduction Kyosho beetle decal sheet.


Reproduction SC-47 Radio Box Cover.


Reproduction Kyosho Beetle Driver Doll.


...and the final piece, a repro Kyosho Beetle body.



I trimmed the body but have yet to mount it on the chassis. I am still trying to decide how I should paint and decorate the thing. Box-Art or CUSTOM??

The kit tires were originally released under the Kyosho, Cox, and Graupner names. These originals are very hard to find and don't come cheap. The ones on my Beetle are #SC-90 fronts and #SC-27 on the rear.

Any tire with a 1.6 in. (40mm) bead for the rear and any tire with a 1.9 in. (50mm) bead for the front will fit. Proline, CRP, and Duratrax made some aftermarket tires for the Kyosho size wheels back in the day.

Kyosho - (5 rib) Front Tire #SC-26
Kyosho - (Block Pattern) Rear Tire #SC-27
Early versions of these say "Good Year." The later versions had "Sand Super" on them.

Kyosho - (Spiked) Rear Tire #SC-84
Kyosho - (3 rib) front tire #SC-90
These only came with the words "Sand Super" on the sidewall.

Kyosho Option House - (A) pattern tread rubber Rear Tire #1873
These say "Dunlop" on the sidewall.

Kyosho Option House - patterned tread rubber Front Tire #1875
These say "Bridgestone" on the sidewall.

Kyosho Option House - #W-5072 Ultima Pro front tires
These say "Bridgestone"

Kyosho Ultima - (3 rib) Front Tire #SC-26
These have "Bridgestone" & "Sand Super" on the side.

The new RC10 Classic tires may also fit as well but I have not tried them.
Team Associated RC10 Classic "Proline Edge" Front Tire - #6865
Team Associated RC10 Classic"Proline Champion" - #6815

Kyosho Option House - (B) spike pattern tread rubber Rear Tire #1874
These say "Sand Super" on the sidewall.

Worth to mention to is AYK, MRP and AJ’S/Twin-K tires.

Thanks HPC22.

Will anyone comment on the likelyhood of the RC10 repros fitting the yellow Beetle hubs?

What about these for the front?

The rear will fit, I don't know about the fronts, but they should be 1.9". This Kyosho OT-30 will fit even if they are 1.6"

Hey Lar, OT30's on the way but still not convinced about the SM25 (Sandmaster) I've seen, I think they're about 2" and worried they'll be loose. Seller not replying to my questions at the moment http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2910298932... 4.m1438.l2649

Thanks Lars, I've been keen to get something from within Europe but looks like I'll be talking to Glenn at CRP again, he's a good guy.

Back in the mid 80's, I had Tamiya tires and wheels mounted on my Kyosho Scorpion because they were better all-around tires when you wanted too take your Circuit 1000 Buggy to the racetrack. Pictured below are the Holiday Buggy rear & Rough Rider front tires along with all the extra hop-up parts that I used to recreate that old-school set-up.
