They came with very highly detailed gt bodies such as the two above and they have five different versions available including unpainted versions. They also had RTR versions available as well slicks and treaded tires. It's a really great concept and it's very popular in Japan

Man, those bodies are killer. I'll definitely pick up one of these for a fun stint between races.

I've run the Yokomo tires on asphalt and they work the same as TC tires. The SJT tires are too short and don't have enough 'give' to make grip.

The wheelbase is longer than regular 1/12 so the bodies won't fit on a standard car.

would be faster than the 30.5T motor I think they are pitching these as a class with and probably a bit more common motor type to find and spec on, or whatever would work for your area.

Looks like Amain has the RTR version in, too bad its only brushed motor, been cool if they had it setup with this spec motor they want to have a class going with out of the box. Just buy and go.

Looks like Amain has gotten in parts for these cars now.

Anyone use these in the USA?
