Someone who works at Tamiya corporate had one at the track Saturday and put a Red Bull theme paints scheme. it looked and appeared to handle very well. So, this may be the new body of choice. The majority of the FF03's are running the Integra body, so that getting old, oh yeah I'm running one also. I just might have to get one also!
