Vintage Kyosho Turbo Burns 4WD
 
Hi all

I'm currently restoring a 1990 Kyosho Turbo Burns and am struggling to find some parts. I was wondering if anyone out there new of anywhere that might have some old stock kicking about.

I'm after:


BS-65 Fuel Tank
BS-10 Bumper
BS 58 & 59 Wheels
BS 31 &32 Tyres
Front propshaft (unsure of BS number)
Gearbox cover (small plastic sheet with bulge in for large gear)

I've tried Ebay but not had any luck. Cheers!

We used to write about our old Kyosho Landmaxs over at rc car action. There is a thread there about your car: http://radiocontrolzone.com/showthread.php?t=35901
Granted it is a year old, and you may have to wait some time for a reply, I am sure there will be plenty of people that would have parts laying around.
I have the fuel tank BS-65, used? I assume you are in US?

Hey Ben Ebay can be a good source for parts but it hit or miss when they are available. keep checking. I have that car as well. Sorry no extra parts though. Check and see if the first generation Inferno parts are available. I know thew wheels will fit.

The OEM tank has been replaced by a newer verson.
The bumper is impossible to find
OEM Tires and wheels are impossible to fine new
Forget about the gear box covers. It is easier to make your own or replace the gearboxes to the first gen Inferno Dx.

I had one of those that I sold recently and regret doing. I would look at this one but the shipping to the US is over $200 usd.. Is that a mistake?
