Before you get one make sure you can get spare chassis parts from your lhs. I had my lhs become a dealer for Hotbodies just to get the parts, and it has been 2 months approxiamtely since the parts have been on order for the car. It is a great car, but parts are limited in what you can get unless you buy another conversion kit just to have spare chassis parts. Which I find rediculous to do. he chassis is thin and flexible. This makes the car great for stock asphalt racing but in mod it is alot more easier to break if you loose control of the car due to an electronic problem.
However it is a great car and fun to drive knowing that their is no t-plate to worry about to break, but parts availability is limited. So it is up to you make the deciding chose considering their are other well off 1/12th scale cars out there.

I to know more go to the 1/12 scale thread here in rctech. Their is alot of knowledgeable peolpe that can help in that department. I am running a Hyperform, but it is a carpet car. The Associated car rc12l4 seems to be the best all around car to get as far as getting parts and it has also won major titles. But again go to that thread and ask them on there.
