Wouldn't dream of it. Come Sunday they'll be calling us Wasted and Basted.
Or perhaps Shiny and Whiny.
Oiled and Boiled?

I like the skyline myself, it seems to be more forgiving in the high speed sweeper and more neutral handling in the corners.
But if you like a body that will give more steering and a more aggressive feel than the Ferrari body fits that bill.
Just my 2$

thanks for inputs. Skyline is hard to find now. I may go with either F360 or NSX.

If you look at the A-main grid usually it will be mostly NSX bodies.
The GT1 winner did win with a NSX.

So, is that a TCS "legal" kit, or one of those overseas black market versions?

It's legal, per Fred. Tamiya USA says the LHS should receive them this week. As far as I can tell, this is one kit that is the same worldwide, except for the color of the handle on the kit box.

The color of the handle will be different from box to box apparently. I got a white handle when I ordered from RC-Champ and several other guys got black handles. Not sure why that is though and it affects the handling of the car exactly ZERO...but I thought I'd share.

Well maybe I'll get lucky and my LHS will get one in time for my b'day.

They have 3-4 kits on order with their distributors, and the availability date was supposed to be 4/15. However, I was going off of the latest information on the Tower site, and they've once again pushed the availability out to late April.
