Honestly, despite my own interest in this car, I can see why there is not enough interest. For starters, this car needs a smooth well groomed track environment. That is something lacking here in the U.S. Of those tracks that are, they're primarily made for 1/8 or 1/10. Even watching 1/10 on the track looks small so 1/12 would be even worse.
I've heard that this car is great in Japan because there are many well groomed onroad tracks that are suitable for 1/10 touring so the 1/12 nitro would be a good fit. However, here in the states it isn't the case.
If anything the Inferno GT is the hottest thing going here in the U.S. Large scale cars with hot looking fully detailed bodies. Those have been flying off the shelves at hobby stores.
