Default My Old Kyosho USA-1 Nitro truck.

I use to work part-time for a Hobby store. I build this about 20 yrs ago.

18 tooth bells largest I could find, 2 case hardened center diff 1/8 inferno gears butted together. Too damn fast! Has all the upgrades.

PCM with fail safe, 3rd channel operate headlamps for night driving.

Currently Ron Paris RXB.21's, Ron Paris AL650 tuned pipes, one-way center diff. Built like a tank I hit a few on the track they ended up in pieces. I'm so sorry!


Would a pair of lrp z.30 bolt right in?

Thats cool

reminds me of the MOAR POWER!!!! craze with T-maxxes when they first came out, one or two peeps ended up making dual-engined trucks.

There aren't many USA-1's left in that condition, but the dual-motor triple shock mod really makes it incredible.

What axles? The factory axles were plastic, no?

It Screams! LOL!

The rest of my car collection, bad thing about working in a hobby store, The 1st week was the only time I got paid in cash, the rest went into the hobby, He said I could order anything I wanted at his cost.



After some cleaning.
My early racing days I believe in early to mid 90's.





Back in day's if you wanted an RC10 gas this was the only way Duratrax Conversion kit.




Finally RC10GT.





Remember The NitroHawk it was one of my favorites at the track.




Been Modified.

Kyosho Lazer ZX

Kyosho Triumph

Kyosho Stinger MKII, race in the early 90's as sideway car dirt oval I used .21 18tooth bell cut down to fit the .12, est top speed 45-50 mph.


My old Bolink eliminator added Titanium shaft still need to be put back together.
How about the RC12 onroad

BMT 931's 2 speed onroad awesome handling, top speed was 75mph.




I won this roller on Ebay got it cheap and in new condition. I had an extra new Picco15 and some spare parts I could almost build another.


This is the 1st Ofna 1/10 scale 4 wd gas called the cobra. lol pos!


Oop's found one more in my rubble pile. My RC10T I butchered to build the Conversion. I'm rebuilding her back!

A&L Lethal Weapon.

Composite craft RC10T Graphite Chassis.

All these cars are in mint or better condition alittle dusty for being stored under the house lol. Well that's how far I got with the cleaning.
