I want to ask: I bought one new (I know it has some years) but around the frontal and back lights there's a yellow pot...someone told me it's the kind of glue used! Do your cars have this problem? thanks
I had the exact same experience with 2 of the Monte Carlo cars that I bought new about 2 years ago. I returned the first one and the replacement had the same problem. I contacted the seller and he checked the rest of his stock and they all had the same problem. I don't know what causes it but I can confirm that it is a problem.
It is quite common on them, I've been looking at ads for them for a long time now & a lot of sellers mention the discolouration - that would bug the hell out of me, I really want one but that's putting me off.
I'm surprised that polishing doesn't cure it, it's one weird reaction. Has anyone contacted Kyosho about it? (I only skimmed the other thread from two years ago)
