My club race these kits as a box-stock spec class several years ago and they were fine with the silver can motors. We did add a wider front bumper to help reduce breakage. Lots of plastic, but they ran fine.

I think these kits are getting a bit old now and you can likely buy something more main stream for less. Have you looked at the 3Racing Sakura Zero S or the Spec-R S1 Sport sedans? Both are in the $100 range brand new.
