Hahah, nice. You can probably just get the body of the mk5 or even get the coveted W12-650 GTI body. But, the Mk6 will be out soon, and I think it's oh so yummy :yum:

I wonder if it's FWD, RWD, or even AWD :whoa:

I once ran an 11 cell FWD Tamiya car and smoked my friend's 7 cell AWD HPI car...was fun lighting up the tires and just taking off, but taking turns, not so much....dorifto city! :rofl:

I use to race r/c cars all the time. havent for some time but I'm going start again. Got me a Tamiya TRF415 MSXXX MRE and the newer brushlees/lipo stuff. First race here locally starts Friday at Ripon. I also want to start going up to Roseville and race there again.

Is the Ripon permanent track still open? I've raced there for many weekends and events. Raced the paved on road championships there even. Love that track. Dan, eh, I could live without. Red-headed guy who owns the body shop and track. :thumbsdow

Says it's a TA01 4WD on-road car.

edit: Found a pick of the kit...it's a poor imitation of the Team Associated TC3, shaft drive and all. Ought to be a CRAP load of fun though!
