Great Fast little Drift Car


Water pump needed replacing.

Radiator was screwed when I bought it.

Carburettor does not idle or reach the red-line on the tacho, service required on the carby.

Sunroof needed greasing because it had nearly seized.

General Comments:

The car drops a great burnout at times.

It reaches 140 km/h easy.

Hand break is sensational.

Drifts sick.

It likes corners. Was made for it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
