Yes they are good cars. However, if you were entertaining getting one I would advise against it. Although a decent amount of 1/5 parts can be retrofitted to other 1/5 manufacturers cars proprietary stuff would be a bit tough to come if your only option is to get it directly from Italy. If you can readily source parts locally, then sure, go for it.

BTW even if you're just playing with it in front of your house don't take parts availability for granted. I've seen more people break and bend aluminum parts on their streets than at an actual race.

If you want a 1/5 I would suggest FG's. Lots of used and new cars on the market and parts availability is plentiful. Staying mainstream is always safe.

like modelfan said parts availability is always gonna be an issue so make sure before u get a car check around to see who carries it or if anybody could place the parts on order for you and if you are going to be racing check around to see what the locals are running cause most of the time the track rats know best for those types of things
