    The Graupner Super Speed Race Car can be considered a basic car for the racing sport. The chassis consists of an epoxy strip and two rigid axles. The non-adjustable front axle was made from an die-cast aluminium construction and integrates a caster angle of about 10 °. The uprights are also die-cast aluminum. At the rear the differential is fitted in a simple metal holder. Both parts are found incidental with the Kyosho Sonic Sports. A rheostat brake worked in conjunction with a somewhat simple speed controller.

  4. Kyosho (Graupner) Go Kart 10

    December 31, 2009 by Bart_Banaan

    Kyosho developed this 1/4 scale R/C model to accurately reproduce the design and performance of original high-performance Kart.
    The model in the pictures is the Graupner (European) version of the Kyosho Go Kart, produced in the early ’80’s and sold in Europe by Graupner as Go Kart 10. This European model did not have ‘side-pods’ and front steering cover of the Kyosho Racing Kart 10 and the driver was made of hard plastic. The steeringservo is placed under the ‘bum’ of the driver and activates the steeringwheel. With this direct steering control like a true racing kart, this machine offers a fascinating driving experience, completely different to standard R/C cars.
