Be a fun car for drifting around a parking lot I guess. Other than cone racing, I don't see much use for street RC cars. To me, it's all about the big 4x4's. I have an HPI SavageXL that I bet could give that Supra a run for its money in a straight line (engine's almost twice the size).

If I didn't have my RC Truck, I'd be going mad not driving the Supra. I recently installed a new clutch, slipper pad, and rebuilt the suspension and both diffs. Then I blew up the front diff (blew both shaft bearings apart)... that wasn't so fun. I was pretty mad about not having 4WD, so I just kept driving it (heh... only damage was excessive wear on the ring and pinion, but not a big deal), but with RWD it was hard to control, but managable in deep snow due to some tire chains I made for it. It's all fixed and almost back together for this weekend. Seems my truck spends more time as a pile of parts than as a running vehicle.

So it's kind of like owning a real Supra, only it fits in the door (barely).
