I think that is what TOURING CAR suppose to be..........realistic body, along with simple 12th scale like chassis......
How many ppl think this thing will just as fast and easy to handle like typical touring car?

I hope this class will take off like they did 14-15 years ago when they released the TA01.....

It's nice to see direct drive making a comeback. Someone need to make a nice set of wide rubbers for the rear now....

Can anyone tell me if it will use only stick packs? I know in Asia they mostly used stick packs but is there a way to use saddle packs?

Anyone have a USA release date?
