I really want a Kyosho Mini Z. $300? really?!?

I used to have a Kyosho Optima, loved it. Chain would lock up at times and require a rebuild, but it was leaps and bounds over Tamiya gear at the time, at least that at my LHS. Now I see this Kyosho Mini Z Optima and fell in love. Then I saw the price! Most are $300 and best I can find is $230. This thing should be $80 like a Losi microT or maybe $100. Can it be found cheaper? How can I get my Optima fix. This thing looks great in youtube vids but I can thing of vehicles with a lot more gear and go at the $230 price point.

Kyosho isn't the cheapest brand out there, especially their micro stuff. Unfortunately you won't find them under $100 unless you find a REALLY good used deal. It's probably easier and cheaper to buy a losi micro SCT and convert it to a buggy.

It's not that I want a buggy, I was feeling nostagic for the Optima since it was my first real quality RC after my Tamiya Subaru Brat, and I'd love to have it, but it's just too expensive.

You could always get a used one, just start watching the classifieds and e-bay
