I'd be very interested to hear your thoughts on the S1 Vs. the Sakura! Keep us posted!

This car costs half the price of the tamiya and that's why this car is so interesting
Jeff said it best, the R1 is all the pluses of the Tamiya, xray, etc at half the cost but you get fantastic quality and durability along with a superb handling car that leaves very little room for complaints. (layshaft not having flanged bearings Is my only complaint. and it's less than $10USD to correct so even that is a stretch)
