Yes please stop asking the same question about every car you find. I'm a huge Tamiya person and the Dyna Storm is a good car and has HVAC25000 ever raced a Storm? Well to tell you the truth, Tamiya started the entire off road craze back in the 70's and they are barely now starting to play catch up. Look what they did when they thru some cash into touring cars. Worlds twice in a row. If you must buy a Tamiya, get an Avante. But if you want a car to compete with, get either a RC10, Losi, Yokomo, or a Tamiya. You the driver can make any car win if you have the skill. Why does it matter which car will be faster? You can throw money into anything and make a Old Tyco beat any car in a straight line but why waste the money? You are giving Tamiya's a bad name. Just shut up and buy a car and go from there. Get a Rising Storm.
