You haven't seen the HKS Altezza? It's a real car and it's a real monster.
Anyways, the R/C car is based on the Tamiya TA-04 chassis, which is a nice R/C tourer chassis and pretty competitive, but will cost you an arm and a leg to buy replacement/upgrade parts. In addition, the car will not accomidate side-by-side packs, which is the most common battery configuration here in the US. This is the primary reason I will not invest in this car, as nice as it seems to be spec'ed and the Tamiya bodies look.
