Yes they are crap and off my mobile phone but I thought I'd share anyway :)

I had the opportunity to get my fingers on Simon Bettens car over the weekend at a race meet in Trier and taking it to bits and putting it all back together again.

First off the car looks and feels fantastic. The chassis material is very nice and looks tough and stiff too. All the alloy parts were finished very nicely and the diffs made a very solid impression.

On track it went like the clappers,looking very agile and seeming to have tons of grip at the front!

Now where do I find the 529....

Here's the pics:
