The Kyosho Gallop MKII was the 3rd and final in the progress based chassis cars from Kyosho.

Equipped with a number of improvements to both the chassis, suspension etc - it was all a little late. The time of the Progress based chassis was long gone, with the Optima finding favour because of its better overall design !

None the less - the last hurrah for this chassis was easily the best. A re-arranged chassis layout gave a better overall centre of gravity and balance. This, along with a different front end geometry including dual front shocks, made the MKII easily the best handling of the trio. 

The body was the most aggressive to adorn this chassis......and was a fantastic looking car on the track. Unfortunately, even though the handling was quite good, this car was a bit of a "porker" (i.e HEAVY), which made it even less desirable for competition.

As said above - this was the last of the Progress based cars.......real history making machines as far as racers are concerned.

More details and pictures to come soon of the Gallop MKII.
