The suspension ideas alone are very unique and seem to work well at getting the laptimes down. They think having a $500 4wd buggy is a good idea for the world so why not an F1 that will compete with the more serious cars out there like Corally, MLP, Alpha, RCIndycars, Hyperdrive, and a couple of others? Go ahead and discuss this amongst yourselves, I have to get a Cross F1 ready for the next race.
That's a really GOOD question. I think they tried it with the F201 (whoops) but that didn't really pick up any momentum. I would love to see Tamiya throw their hat in the ring to compete with some of the more hardcore, racing developed chassis.

I'd love to see some pics of the cars from Japan. I've seen video of them racing and the cars are hooked up, but there's not allot out there about what their doing. If you come across anything please feel free to share with the rest of us.
