I believe the car is Kyosho TF-5. It was a orange,white and black car with a dodge stratus body. It was a 1/10 car with a 20 turn motor. A guy at my hobby shop has a friend that worked for rc car magazine and did a review on this car. When he was done he sent to him because they knew eachother and he put it up for sale. It wasn't even out yet and he was selling a $379 car for $200. I saw the car on display and thought it was good deal and almost bought it but I am an offroad racing fan. He later took it off the sale and kept it. Put a 19 turn motor in it to run with the 19T class.
This is no lie i sware on my grave its true and the car new car you are talking about is probably this one. You can see pictures of it on kyoshos website.

I don't mean to stick my nose into someone else's business, but I do want to clear this up. I reviewed the Kyosho TF-5 Readyset with the orange, white, and black Dodge Stratus body for RC Car Magazine. We do not sell any of our cars, nor do we authorize the sale of any products given to our magazine. After our testing of the TF-5 Readyset was complete, the car was given to a friend by an employee as a gift, about two months after the car had been tested. Obviously it's out of our control by that point, but I must clarify that we do not sell our test cars or products.

Default SHIN EDITION

Is the SHIN edition a complete rolling chassis kit, or just the carbon fibre parts ?
