The ultimate revival! Get ready for the resurgence of Kyosho’s famous Scorpion!
In the spirit of the original but with upgrades throughout!
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. 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!
