Looks great, 1/12 budget racing. Reminds me indeed on the time I had a mardave stockcar. Does this one has a diff or not cause the Mardaves didn't.

I wonder how " budget " these cars actually are ( this includes Mardaves).

It seems by the time you've bought all the hop ups needed to make it decent handling wise, you're way over what a good, clean used, "true" 1/12 would have cost you. Not to mention the performance gap between these two approaches.

Now maybe with a super restrictive set of rules it makes sense.
