Default Honda ATC

I have just got this and fallen in love. I can't decide to repaint it or keep as is. Those logos doesn't look like stickers and I can't paint them.
Now it's my first thing to rescue from a house fire.











Thanks for looking

Honda ATC 250 Kyosho Cox tri-max

Kyosho sure did make some silly crap back then. Man, those were the days.

Wow, thats awesome. Great find. I didn't know an RC version of these existed. I used to have a real one as a kid. The little ATC 70 model. Great fun indeed.

I still prefer the original vintage ATC or Big Red. They are symbols for old school for me
I believe that Honda is not making them because they are dangerous for many people. I heard that so many got injured with them, even Mahoney almost fallen from it in Police Academy. But it must be extremely fun when you drive it in sand and snow carefully.

Kyosho should embrace this and re-release this stuff. They had blow up tires, chain drive 4x4's, ect. I would be all over it!

ScaleXtreme: I love this! I never knew that these existed either. This is truly a rare RC that few have.

Although I never owned one, I rode 3 Wheeled ATV's a lot when I was younger. I grew up riding motocross and enduro's, so my friends had all the famous 3 wheelers. The 'Big Red' was a load of fun. I had a friend who had a little Honda 110 which we used in the snow. The craziest one was the Honda 250R, which was 2 stroke, basically un-controllable, and you could not turn if you were on the throttle at all. I remember some crashes on that one. Nice blue and white color scheme though...

The crazy thing about them (3 wheelers) was when they would tip, you would instinctivily put your foot down, and then your foot/leg would get run over by the rear tire. Good times...

Thanks, I heard that these were dangerous in wrong hands. I wish I will have a chance to ride a real one in the future.

Today I tried to run this but failed. I put batteries in the radio but it didn't work.
Looks like old batteries had sex party in it.
Than I disassembled the chassis but everything was historic in it. My battery didn't fit that esc. I have to save it for the future, maybe one day someone can make it run.

Very cool find , I wish it was mine .

I raced an 86 Honda 250R when I was 17. It was stupid fast. I had it when the first Suzuki Quadzilla 500 first came out, 88 I think. I watched a grown man cry when I whipped his *** on a 250R ( of coursse it wasn't stock....Paul turner 300 kit with piston pipe reeds and carb upgrade ) I think before that I owned one of every model made, but the Honda was definitly the fastest.
You just had to lean to make em turn...and never put your foot down , lol.

Hmmm , maybe a neat project.

Maybe you should just remove all the electronics exept for the steering servo and motor? I doubt those are bad. Just solder on a new connector to the motor if needed, and the same for the servo. Then you can any speed controller and receiver/transmitter? Just to get it running any whoz...

Chris at Rogue Element might go nuts for this thing. You should send him the link to this...

And too make it more scale, give the driver a cast on his leg.

That's exactly it. These 3 wheelers were crazy-popular, and almost everyone had one. This included people who never rode anything besides a bicycle. My neighbor purchased one for him and his daughter to run around his 200+ acre farm. The first day he was climbing a hill, flipped over backwards and broke his collar-bone. This was not uncommon, as you know!

I rode motocross/enduro motorcycles every day, and when things got hairy, I would do all the wrong things on a 3 wheeler. If you rode them every day, you were all set, and fully knowledgeable. They simply got discontinued because so many people got hurt on them, and I can only imagine the lawsuits Honda must have had...

I bet there are quite a few in the back of some garages, covered with a tarp. Used a few times until Johnny got hurt and it got put away forever. I should start to put my feelers out! Hehe...

There are come crazy guys out where I ride my quad that rip around on some restored 3 wheelers. Saw them jumping off a coal slag pile - just crazy, could not imagine jumping with a 3 wheeler, but they were making it look easy.

ScaleXtreme, I believe I saw quite a few of these on Jeffro's shelf, he might have some more info on restoring these. Pretty sure it came up in a thread of his a while ago.

Dwane; Thanks the real ones look like becoming a collectors item.

Timmy; I think I can solve it by soldering the colorful tamiya motor ends to the original motor and put some modern tamiya electronics. I wish I could use the original vintage radio, it has some great buttons on it which I don't know what they are for.

OldSchool; Thank you, I will contact Jeffro. Maybe he has some spare parts too
