Oh crap! I want one of those! It's amazing how realistic looking it is.

I hit teh NOS when I was at like 100 and my speedo bent around like 3 times, I guess I was going like 300 mph. It felt like I was sitting still, I ran out of road but luckily I was going so fast that I hit a bump and took off. I guess the Supra wing really helped out, luckily I landed in a lake and my wheels were spinning so fastz that I scrambled across it like those crazy scandanavians with their 4x4s that walk on wata. I go off of the lake just in time to hit a dirt field right before my flux capacitor quite.[/quote]

Hey, and it's only $2,600 or so for everything!

Actually, if you check out the parts list, seems to be a very solid model that would make a great 'mini' rock crawler.

Still too steep for my wallet!

Someone should make a Lexan one that looks more realistic. It shouldn't be too hard considering how simple the body is

You could just do what they did on top gear and make full size cars and trucks radio controlled.
