    The Kyosho Optima Mid 1/10 4wd Off-Road Buggy Kit is a rerelease of the classic Optima that debuted during the 2nd World Electric Off-Road Car Championships in 1987. The prototype of this buggy was known for holding five of the ten A-Main qualifiers and finishing second place. Kyosho has faithfully recreated this buggy by following the 1987 design. This updated design allows for midship motor mounting and a more centralized weight distribution for increased performance. Get the Kyosho Optima Mid and experience a classic chassis with modern mechanics.

    The main chassis is made from 6016 T6 aluminum for added rigidity. Each component of the car has been updated to withstand a more modern power system. This recreated Optima Mid features an adjustable belt tensioner built into the rear transmission, ultimately achieving a smooth drive with minimal loss. Equipment from the Turbo Optima Mid such as the FRP front and rear shock stays, and countersunk main chassis have also been incorporated into this model. Threaded gold anodized shock bodies resemble the pressure shocks that dominated the era. The racy form of the original Optima Mid body design is faithfully reproduced in line with the popular vintage series.
