That's one of those things that I've always asked myself "why don't they do this...". Fit and finish of all parts has been excellent so far.

anyone tested it on a track yet???

New to this thread from Sunny England (Not).
Have had my car for three weeks now and as previously mentioned in other threads, the car was lovely to build, every bag was numbered, and within that bag was steps which related to pages within the instructions.

I have used the car just the once at a BRCA National in England and it is far the easyest and best car I have driven.
From the set up sheet I made no adjustments and the car stuck to the track where my previous cars have let go.

Would recommend this car dispite it's inital cost, as it will pay for it's self when used.
