The ultimate revival!

Get ready for the resurgence of Kyosho’s famous Scorpion!

In the spirit of the original but with upgrades throughout!

 

The legendary Kyosho Scorpion is credited with taking the racing buggy category into the realm of pure motorsports.

Even after 30 years since it was first released in 1982, the indelible mark of the Scorpion still exists with its many fans around the world.
Kyosho is proud to renew this machine to all its former glory! While maintaining the wild and free spirit of the original baja buggy style and chassis layout, the 2014 version features the latest in performance technology and sacrifices nothing in speed and endurance on modern buggy racing tracks.

Externally it may look like the original Scorpion with its semi-trailing suspension arms, but the advanced 6061T6 forged aluminum material delivers futuristic levels of strength, rigidity and durability.

Following the original design, the Scorpion 2014 features a new two-piece die-cast aluminum gearbox with differential gears. In addition, the included slipper clutch protects the transmission as well as delivers efficient traction that takes the Scorpion’s control feel and durability to a new higher level. Precision 48 pitch gears reduce traction pulsation for direct driving control characteristics while the flat under surface of the countersunk chassis has no protruding screw heads for minimal contact resistance and scraping, resulting in higher durability. Stainless shafts combine with aluminum cylinders in the oil shocks for smooth stroke from top to bottom and running performance worthy of a true racing buggy.

Like the original Scorpion, the 2014 version is packaged as an unassembled kit, but nearly all tapping screws and nuts have been replaced with the improved lightweight and security a hex screws.

  • Revival of the famous Kyosho Scorpion.
  • High performance upgrades are featured throughout the 2014 version.
  • Kit with pre-assembled gearbox and oil shocks (to be installed).
  • Countersunk surface allows screws to be seated flat.
  • Lightweight design reduces use of nuts and tapping screws.
  • Ball diff from Ultima RB can be installed as an optional upgrade.

From expert racers who knew the magic of the original Scorpion to modern-day racers, discover for yourself why the Scorpion 2014 commands such respect!

Requires: RC system with steering servo, 540 class electric motor and ESC, stick type battery, suitable charger, paint for body shell and tools to assemble.

Very happy with this model, particularly as it's my first RC car kit in 25 years! The quality of the components (particularly the aluminium ones) is fantastic. Instructions are very clear, and parts are bagged up in a clear and logical way. A great looking car! My one slight niggle in the design is the location of the on/off switch, and that it just secured with double sided tape. Getting the bodyshell on is a bit fiddly and unless the switch is secured properly it can be easily dis-lodged.
