Default Kyosho TF-5 RTR?

Does anyone have information with this car? I was injured in a motorcycle crash, and will be off work for a few months. I race 1/8 th scale off road in the summer, and was thinking that it may be fun to get a sedan to race on road, indoors on carpet to give me something to do while I am getting better. How is the car, anyone have any thoughts on the TF5 Readyset version??? Thanks!!

It would have to be the best value for money RTR Tourer out there. Plenty of hop-up parts are availiable for it to from Kyosho & 3Racing etc. Can't go wrong with it.

I have 3 of them. Ideal first car as the RTR comes with radio gear, body shell and a very competitive chassis for a great price. Great stock touring car, just throw on gears, silver can, rubber/foam and line up on the grid.
