There were a few crashes! but the impacts arn't that strong, because the car slides around like if it was on ice, impact is minor!
Dunno about you guys, but I noticed two instances in the video where the driver must have goofed.

1) The blue s13 seems to have driven into the inside of the hairpin once.

2) The panda 86 seems to have driffed too wide in the indoor track at least once too, in the video.

Hmm Asimo, any idea whether they are going to be releasing a body kit only set of the cars? I plan to pension off my MR4SP to a life of dori dori fun , dun want to spend unnessary money on another SD, just want the FC3S shell, the GT-wings and those darn wheels and fake brakes... and a fat exhaust!!!

You're lucky Asimo!
I'm not so tempted by the hard Yokomo shells and the chrome wheels
I would look more into the PAL stuff, like the body, carbon wing and exhaust (which I already ordered for my Mini cooper ), for wheels I prefer the plastic but realistic from Tamiya So I would just get the tires and disc brake from Yokomo....

Default yokomo video

As you can see in the yokomo video they used very little countersteer which is not needed in our AWD cars. Those cars are awesone. THe calipers, disc brakes, exhaust, wheels, decals. Its just like D1. And extremely "showy" for our cars. Man I'm gonna put up videos of my x-ray when i get home.

I'm really not that impressed with the video... I think they should have provoked the car a bit more, and set it up to use more counter steer... And that just because it looks cooler and more realistic....
