Kyosho Ultima Time-Capsule by Michael Neblett [READER’S RIDE]

When Michael Neblett wrote in with pics of his original Kyosho Ultima circa 1988, he said he was moved to submit it before Kyosho went and re-released it.

V8-Powered Race Cars Should Be A Racing Class

V8-Powered Race Cars Should Be A Racing Class

These hand built Conley V8 engines are definitely awesome, but right away visions of one of these firing up on a big racetrack come to mind.
