Highly reminiscent of the old smartech clone of the fg sportline.

Great another clone or a clone of a clone of a clone.....Just what we need.

All these jerks do is rename the same piece of crap to call it there own piece of crap.

Is this car still made? I have seen something similar in a different brand a while back but is it still made today?

I don't know,it looks cheap to me.The brakes look like a very weak system there,meaning the materials used.I run the baja ss and it sure looks more rugged.

The Carson is known to be a decent car, so no reason to think this wouldn't be. At the end of the day, what do you want for the money?

IMO, that's an apples to oranges comparison...different class of vehicles and the Baja ain't all that for onroad racing.

Seems like it comes with the Smartech engine though, not compatible with CY/Zen, I would not recommend that engine..

Thank you! Cool site. If I can't find a Mustang in 1/4 or 1/5 scale, I just might go with that Ford GT.
