That's my next toy! I've been eyeing the FG's for years... keep dropping into Advance Hobby and drooling. I want the competition model with the short wheelbase (Porsche GT2). Maybe next year.. for now, i'll have to live with my HPI Nitro RS-4 with $1500 in accessories

LOL!!!only if your mini-me.....This 1/5 car will even kick some real Acura Integra's skinny decaled butts.By the way this will be the way my FG body will look like when its completed.If anyone out there want the FG E30M3 body its cost about $190 shipped but is in a VERY limited supply,I can hook you up directly with the FG sales guys but you must hurry!!!!!
