Another classis body marriage on the M-02 chassis. A must have for the Porsche collector. A realistic looking version of this 300+Bhp supercar. [by acprc]


Note this car comes with wider *wheels* and stickier tyres for the rear. Front and rear wheels are not interchangeable. The 996 shell is "mini" sized too, so Tamiya's scaling calculations must be rather stretchy. [by WillyChang]

The other review spells it out perfectly. Very hard to control, mainly on high speeds and corners. Has grip on the front but tends to slide over the rear, destroing rims in doing so. Loses grip on steering, choosing her own direction. Not much fun, only good to look at. Nice body, well copied from the real thing. This one is a model, let her looks do the talking. Not worth tuning.

Well after getting one of these I am disappointed. The body is as usual as nicely detailed as we are used to from Tamiya however the chassis (M0-2L) leaves much to be desired. My main complaint is the loosness of everthing in the suspention and steering of this car. Even though it is only 2WD (rear wheel) it is so wobbly it just wants to go everywhere but straight ahead. If you want a car to fill your collection this may be nice to have but as anything other than a shelf queen or blast about runner look for something else.
