Hi All,

Does anyone have detailed pictures of the Takata Dome NSX's specifically? I'm trying to see the subtle differences between the 2002 vs 2003, and the 2004 vs 2005 vs 2007.

Takata Dome 2002
Takata Dome 2003
Takata Dome 2004
Takata Dome 2005
Takata Dome 2007

Here is the rest of the lineup from what i know. Am i missing any?

Mugen 2002 NSX
Castrol NSX
Loctite NSX
Gzox NSX 2003
Mobil1 NSX 2003
Epson NSX 2004
Epson NSX 2005
Arta NSX 2007
Black Test Car 2005
White Test Car 2007

Thanks.
Bill

This is the 2007 Takata Dome. I have an earlier Takata Dome, the 2003 G'Zox, the 2005 Black Test Car and one of the Epsons at home. Will try to take pics for comparison.

Great, Thanks for the pictures. The 2007 color looks so different in the picture you posted from the one in the link.

Thanks for the pictures, it helps a lot, as im trying to buy these for my collection.

Ive got an 07 arta, and an 05 takata. Ive got some good detailed pics of the takata from before I raced it. I could take some pics of them together, or just post the ones I have of them now. The pics Traveler posted are high quality, but I should have each of them from a bunch of different angles. Ill dig out the pics, or take new ones if you think it'll help you out.....

Hi Hrdrvr, Thanks very much. The ones Traveler posted are sufficient. I can see the differences in the decals.

The 2002 vs the 2003 would be helpful if anyone has those ones.

@Traveler - the g'zox nsx is an awesome autoscale.

do you guys race those bodies?

The older Takatas are Yellow and white (2002 and 2003). Here's some reference links and some details on how to quickly tell them apart.

2002 (rear window is painted, does not have the top intake)

2003 (rear window is clear, does have top intake)
http://www.kyosho.com/eng/products/rc/detail.html?product_id=100102

Your list is fairly complete but there are a few rare items missing.

Takata 2005 Signed (1 of 250)
Arta 2003 (1 of 100)
White Test Car 2007 Limited ( 1 of 500)

No way! Strictly a shelf queen. The picture I posted doesn't do it justice. Most of the body is chrome. Check your PMs. ;)

The earlier ones (02, 03) had yellow on the bodies.

How would you define collectors? Like many mini-z racer's I've met, we get a new body and are torn to run it vs display it. :)

well then thats when you have to buy 2 of that body. display one and race the other! ;)

i used to be a collector with a collection of nearly 50 or more. over the years i've thinned down to maybe a dozen. i need the space for my 80's toy collections :p

I remember a conversation many moons ago...

idiot 1: Wow, that MB Original Teile is beautiful! Almost too pretty to race.

idiot 2: Yeah, but I only bought the F40 with tonight and I think I wanna run the longer wheelbase. It's not like they're gonna stop making these anytime soon and besides they are only like $20 from *******.com right now... they probably have a ton in stock too.

idiot 1: Yeah, they're just plastic bodies anyways... I doubt they'll be very collectible.

:( kinda explains my avatar too...

Ditto on a loctite NSX for me but the upside is you get to race a kick ass unique looking body.

LOL. I guess you never know. I wonder if any of the bodies that are being released now will ever be as collectable as the teile? couldnt kyosho re-release the teile? then i'd feel pretty silly for what i paid for mine.

I just wish i had started this hobby when it first came out, then i wouldnt have to play catch up.

funny story imxlr8ed :D

even if they re release a body the original is still going to valuable. case in point the lambo was re released but the originals are stll going for a pretty penny. the only thing that will effect price will be wants and availability.

but my teile came from a readyset, so it has no papers or insert identifying the model number to prove that it was an original. if the re-release is exactly the same, whos going to trust me? lets just hope they've thrown the mould out. haha

:eek: Shhhhhh!!!! They're listening!!!

I wouldn't want any current owners of that body feeling like some of the Lambo Murch hi-payers did a little while back when they re-released that one! ;)

I do still have a raced Loctite NSX... Still in good shape but the grille pops out on those because the front clip is right behind it. Just waiting for someone to have a spec NSX race for an excuse to bring it out again!

There is one up for auction right now on the bay. item #200579290223. mint condition. the bids only at $15 right now, with 4 days to go. you can pick it up, and race the one you currently have. ;)

Appreciate the info. but the need for racing gear killed off my collection a long time ago. I have one shelf queen and it's the Mad Max... loved that Australian muscle car for some strange reason (based on the Falcon I think).

I will trade it for some PN tires though! :rolleyes:
