To be honest I fell in love with this car the moment I saw it. The inboard suspension is so realistic I just had to get one...so I did. My kit came all the way from HongKong, but how it did it and survived I will never know....the packing was non-existant.

After only five hours of work I was able to stand back and admire the greatest peice of Tamiya engineering ever! The kit went together smoothly, with the only problem being the back hubs (or me puting a short one one on one side, and a long one on the other!)

There is a lot of slop in the wheels but shims would easily solve that. The turnbuckles are also quite hard to adjust so the upgrade kit would make a big difference.

This is the first time that I have bought a kit with the intention of looking good, not to race it, but it looks just as good on the track as it does on my bedroom shelf.

Highly recomended to all F1 fans!
