It is quite long in the front. And honestly its an ugly shaped car imho.
The ft86 looks totally bad @ss tho
Performance aside, the R35 reminds me of a Japanese Dodge Charger.
In the blog I mentioned he stated the FT86 body had short overhangs, meaning the nose and tail are shorter than usual. I ordered this body for my 03F, crap I wonder if it will even fit?
Detailwise all the Japanese make (Tamiya, Yokomo, ABC) bodies have no equal. HPI bodies you give up detail for price. An HPI body can be half as much as one of the other 3 mentioned. +1 on the Tamiya lightbuckets, moulded from chrome plated plastic rather than lexan like the rest of the body. Yokomo has the same thing but available separately.
