    January 1, 2010 by Bart_Banaan

    1970: The Kyosho DASH 1 is presented at an Aircraft Pageant at Harumi International Trade Center sponsored by Mitsuboshi Shoten. Three professional racing drivers were invited to run the DASH 1.

    It was in 1970 that Kyosho started selling the DASH 1. The DASH 1 is generally agreed by the industry to be the first RC car made in Japan.
    The three body styles chosen were the most popular racing machines in the Japanese Grand Prix: Porsche 917, Lola T70 and the McLaren Elba. The bodies were vacuum molded, a totally new innovation in RC at the time. Mr. H. Suzuki (then President of Kyosho) was the one who set about looking for a vacuum molding factory.

  8. 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.
