A post on the Lamley Group Facebook Group (affectionately known as the Group Group or LGG) reminded me that I took photos of the TLV and Kyosho 787B’s back when TLV released their first.
So I am going to post them here. I originally had the #55 replica by Kyosho, but that is now sitting in the office of a fairly well-known JDM-restoration shop here in SLC. I replaced it with the #202, which Kyosho made with the matching 5-spoked wheels.
But there are not very many differences after that. So, instead of pitting these two against each other, here they are as a pair, representing two different cars. Maybe TLV has the 202 coming at some point. For now, these two look great together.
