Can anyone tell me what a kyosho optima mid is worth or goes for on flee bay & can you still get the bits for them?

got an oldie Matt? I'm not sure about bits for them tbh but I once met a guy who had a warehouse full of old Kyosho stuff so there must be some kicking about. Damian Whittle might be able to sort ya out if you're looking for spares also as he knows someone with a shop I think and had a load of old kyosho bits.

Plenty of NOS spares on ebay, and a used boxed one at 75 buy it now that hasn't sold yet, so not enormous money, but not throw away either.
I have a complete roller and a new shell and undertray, must get them married sometime:D

Always wanted one to sit beside my goldpan RC-10.
But they are expensive on ebay if you find one.:yawn:

Used versions go from 15 - 50 depending on condition, I've even picked up tatty ones for spares supply for less than 10 complete. They are only worth much if they are NIB or perfect builds.

Spares are plentiful, always loads on ebay but also Kyosho still has some spares left for them - but not the bits you end up breaking:lol:

Kamtec make bodies for both long and short wheelbase versions and Marwan (http://www.tamiyaclub.com/trades.asp?id=5484) makes all 3 lwb shells and sticker sets for every Mid version.
