Return to the form that fought at the top of the world! The origin of Optimamid is revived

In 1987. the Kyosho team entered the 4WD class of the 2nd IFMAR (International Model Race Car Federation) Electric Off-Road Car World Championship held in England with a prototype machine that was a mid-engine version of the conventional Optima.
The prototype. tentatively named Mid-Optima at the time. was in a state close to that of the actual race. but five cars advanced to the A-main final race. where the top 10 cars from the preliminaries competed. Although it unfortunately missed out on the honorable mention. it achieved second place and showed the world its high performance. This prototype eventually received the official name Optimamid and went on the market. making it possible for anyone to experience world-class performance.
