Introduction

American Joel Johnson won his first 2WD class world title at the 2nd Electric Off-Road World Championship in England in 1987 driving a modified Kyosho ULTIMA. Also, TQ’ed this event and finished 1st and 2nd and 3rd. This became known as the ‘JJ Spec’ and was popular with its custom suspension, main chassis and front-rear shock stays that enhanced performance and styling. Only third-party conversion kits were available at the time and even then, it was extremely difficult to completely reproduce the JJ specifications. Now the ‘JJ Spec’ is honored as the 13th model in the Vintage Series to commemorate Kyosho’s 60th anniversary.

Joel Johnson

In 1981, at just 13 years of age, Joel Johnson won the 1:12-scale U.S. National Championship, and in 1987 he won the IFMAR World Championship in the 1:10-scale 2WD Buggy class.This was the first time a Kyosho machine won a world championship, and is still a legendary accomplishment that is talked about to this day. As the years went by, this world champion machine came to be known as the “JJ Ultima.” With numerous additional National and World Championships to his credit since 1987, Joel Johnson is still racing 1:8-scale cars at the very top level, some 36 years later.

FRP shock stays flexibly absorb impact from the shock units and follow the original design in shape and color. Standard gold shocks combine with newly developed medium soft (MS) front springs.

 

Rear Shocks

Rear shocks are also the same gold type as on the original. Medium Hard (MH) rear springs work in combination with the MS front springs to deliver exceptional maneuverability and performance over surface gaps.
