The Kyosho Turbo Scorpion 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy Kit remains true to the essence of the unique Scorpion design, but features Scorpion-style wheels in the larger 2.2 inch modern standard wheels for improved off-road performance. In addition, 12mm oil shocks based on the Optima deliver rock-solid running stability and excellent damping characteristics that work in combination with high-grip front and rear tires with a 20mm wider front tread and 10mm longer wheelbase than the original Scorpion to realize improved control and handling performance. With a thorough modernization, the Turbo Scorpion is ready and willing to accept modern-day power sources and compete on modern race circuits. The standard Turbo Scorpion is a fully optioned chassis configuration and is ready to take the punishment that goes with hard driving.

Kyosho Turbo Scorpion 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy Kit
Typical kyosho quality.
Not much else to say.
Amain prices while not the most competitive are ok with discounted shipping and promo code for international buyers when kits are out off stock with other suppliers.

Kyosho Turbo Scorpion 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy Kit
A Kyosho Le Mans 240S 15.5T 4WD brushless motor, a Kyosho 60 amp ESC and a 3S Lipo are pushing this buggy to a top speed of about 37mph (60km/h). Setting the ESC's Max Break Force to 50% limits the breaking energy on the rear tires enough to control deceleration. Fitted with self-made front and rear sway bars, cornering is heavily improved. The stock Gear Box Mount aluminum plate (SC254) bents quickly under heavy use, it's carbon counterpart (SCW022) is a possible solution.
On rainy days it's fun to step down to 2S, use M4 Positron tires front and rear and fit the side light buckets with LEDs when its getting dark.
Snowy conditions are not ideal: whatever tires are used, the treads of the front tires are clogged up rapidly, hence loosing most of their grip...

Kyosho Turbo Scorpion 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy Kit
I'll be honest, I built this kit to have as a shelf queen. Having said that, the quality is top notch and the build was really fun and went together quite easily. I have installed a brushless motor and a Savöx servo and it drives really well but I put her back on the shelf before accumulating too many scratches. What else can I say? She looks really good on display!

When I was ready to purchase my next Kyosho kit I knew exactly where to buy it, Amain Hobbies. Can't go wrong with a Kyosho kit, and you definitely can't go wrong with Amain. They had just what I wanted, when I wanted. Their service was excellent with quick shipping. My order took no time at all to reach my front door. Thanks Amain for making this hobby so enjoyable and affordable.

I truly love this Retro Re-release of the Kyosho Turbo Scorpion Kit. It was super fun to build and you learn plenty along the way. Also with the upgraded components provided in this kit, It is capable of handling today's 2s & 3s Lipo batteries.
