Default Restore Or Not

Well, I have an old 1980ish Radio Shack Lamborghini on hand. The thing really doesn't run, and is in need of a complete tear down. I personally think that it would make a great Winter project and restoration. Vote and tell me what you guys think.

If you need a winter project and parts and whatnot are cheap, then go for it. Restoring things can be great fun.

No Not yet, but it's in this old Radio Shack commercial.

Keep an eye out for the Lamborghini Countach in the beginning, at 14 sec, and at 20 sec.

How does it handle? I'll assume nothing like our hobby grade R/C's but is it fun to drive?

Not bad, and yes, it's pretty fun. Although right now it doesn't even run. You know what, I have the 1/10 scale if I need speed anyway.

Does this really have that many parts to it.. Looks like something that is just molded from plastic (walmart style??).
