TOPIC: Kyosho ff peugeot 205

Kyosho ff peugeot 205 1 month 54 minutes ago #57046

So I had the opportunity to buy an old kyosho 205 ff. Especially because I already have a new body.
(I didn't know from wich rc it comes when I bought it). I bought it because the body had its accessories and looks in relatively good condition and a good description of what need cares.
The chassis is a spaghetti but could be fixed (I hope)
I miss steering arms, the save servo, a dogbone and the front.lower arm support. The diff is ok.

The original body has light buckets, side mirrors and brocken wipers. The motor plate has a rest of brocken screw but should be easy to fix. The original msc is missing to but could be replace by a vintage msc. I am thinking about ball bearings
Wheeles are abused to. But it is a good base IMO.
Any advices and missing spares are welcome buddies. ;)

So! I worked on the 205 tonight.
I still need some spares but it was in good state. Tomorrow it should receive radio gears.
I only relined the chassis, puted bearings in wheeles, and replace some screws.
The steering rod is only for «shelf»
I want to try it . It is so tiny.

Now rear arm support is brocken, steering rods and servo saver, and a red shock tower are missing / brocken. And a full set of wheeles (too exploded worn for my resto skill)

Looking good so far Flo.
This will look cool when it’s finished.
I like the white body shell.
I’m assuming that’s the new one ?
I like the wheels on it.

Sorry I can’t help you with spares, Tamiya is enough for me. I’ve never owned another brand.

Very nice build! I have to leave my Tamiya comfort zone once in a while and do something just like this! :)

Great Job

I'm really glad to see a Kyosho 205 again.

It was my first car I bought new in 91'
Mine needs many many parts, but I will rebuild it some day.

Mine back in 91' :)
