Any one know what Kyosho car this is?

I won this on eBay, but not really sure what model it is!

Most kyosho chain models I know of follow the Optima design.

This has a plastic chassis which makes me think it would have came after the optima, but the optima as far as I know was the last chain drive 4wd buggy.

The older kyosho chain drives ive only seen one of and looks nothing like this.

Searching the web for R/C info is almost useless since you pick up nothing but sites mirroring eBay!

Yeah, that's a Kyosho Rocky alright. It was my first RC car bought back in 1987. I still have my Tower Hobbies catalogs from back then, all dog-eared and worn. I can't remember how many times I looked through that catalog dreaming about Ultimas, Optimas, Big Brutes, etc. :)
