1:12 Scale Radio Controlled Electric Powered 4WD Racing Car FANTOM EP 4WD Ext Gold 60th Anniversary limited 30644
Special limited-edition model
commemorates Kyosho’s 60th anniversary!
Of the many famous models Kyosho has produced in its glittering 60-year history, the 1/12 scale Phantom EP electric racing car is a standout. First released in 1983, the Phantom EP-4WD followed by the Phantom EP-4WD Ext in 1985 achieved outstanding results at the Japanese Championships. For fans of that spectacular era, the Phantom EP-4WD Ext was selected as the 12th model for the Kyosho Vintage Series. To commemorate Kyosho’s 60th anniversary, this limited-edition of the Phantom EP-4WD Ext features gold anodized aluminum parts and special black front and rear wheels. Performance has been further enhanced with a rear ball diff (not available in 1985) that works in perfect combination with a thicker (increased to 6mm diameter) lightweight carbon shaft that delivers smooth cornering characteristics on various surfaces from asphalt to carpet. In addition, the rear damper has been upgraded to the EFW014 adjustable rear shock (previously optional) to widen the scope of setting options and improve responsiveness for optimized running performance. Since its release in 2022, the Vintage Series Phantom EP-4WD Ext has captured the imagination of new fans as well as those who want to relive the glory days. Even if you already own the Phantom EP-4WD Ext, this limited-edition 60th anniversary commemorative model takes the Phantom experience to a whole new level.

In response to user requests, this model features the first ball differential incorporated into the FANTOM EP series. Provides stable cornering characteristics in combination with an ultra-lightweight carbon shaft reinforced to 6mm in diameter. A newly designed special wheel bolt is used to fix the right wheel.
Lightweight and high rigidity carbon rear shaft is included as standard. Diameter has been increased from 5mm to 6mm, greatly improving crash resistance.
The 6mm rear left wheel hub also features the gold finish unique to the 60th anniversary model. The double screw clamp keeps it secure and prevents loosening while driving.
Previously only sold as an option, the Rear Adjust Shock Conversion (No.EFW014) is included as standard, allowing precision adjustment and a wider range of setting options.
Kingpin coil suspension with a specially shaped spring attached to the top of the front knuckle arm achieves smooth cornering by inducing body roll with minimal stroke.
Rear section of the main chassis is extensively cut to increase flexibility and produce the suspension effect. In combination with the oil-filled shock, this simple system delivers excellent surface tracing performance characteristics.
Efficient aerodynamics of the original CRC-II body design realizes excellent cornering performance. An optional rear wing used across the Phantom EP-4WD and BW Spider can be installed for increased stability.
