More performance and style with improvements to each key component,
this machine is more than just a reproduction!

As the 5th model to make its return as part of the vintage series, the ever-popular Scorpion released in 1982 was re-launched 2 years ago and has undergone a detailed overhaul to match modern performance with retro styling. The new Turbo Scorpion remains true to the essence of the unique Scorpion design throughout, 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 new 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.

5 of 5 One of the best RC kits there is December 10, 2022
Reviewer: WickedFog from Terre Haute, IN United States  
The quality of the Kyosho Legendary kits is pretty amazing. I own two of these, one of which I converted to the Beetle. If you are looking for a really fun build project, this will do nicely.
