Ford RS200 In Lexan 1/10 Scale Beauty

The Ford RS200. I knew nothing about this car. Back in those days we did not get World Rally broadcasts and there was no internet video. Then Kyosho dropped this animal . I fell in lust and wanted the body for my Ultima but I never found it in the Tower Hobbies catalog. Now this new company called Controlfreax (I'm sick of the x's too) has a really nice one at a great price, did I mention it was also available in carbon? I have been itching to build a tarmac rally car with a bank of lights across the front, actually I want to do that in real life too. I'll do the math on which one is cheaper, the RC or making lights for my 240sx. I have also included a video of awesomeness. As a child my mother bought me the raddest Darda set in the store. Yup, the one with the upside down jump. This thing is like that one times infinity. Check it out.

That's one bad a** video!! Wish they'd slowed down more of it, of course then it'd be ten minutes long.
