Default wow what a beauty and runner too

Thanks John and Emma. I just received my Sprite, packaged extremely well for shipping.
once un wrapped I was staring at this gorgeous little bugeye.
Beautifully finished , very impressed.
Nice paint and decal , and driver detail was excellent.
It took me awhile to stop looking at it , as the lines are so crisp and accurate.
Eventually I turned it over to inspect the dirty parts.
Another wow, what a wonderful desighn for the chassis a d the front motor design is very unique.
The wheels and tires were perfect and very well done. The geari g was smooth and no binding anywhere.
So I am still as impressed from my first glance, Only thing left is the track test.
2 lane routed with latex finish cooper tape at 10.5 volts. I thought the video was perhaps enhanced as the performance for a front engined car is normally far off of the video.
Finally enough courage to give it the test, a nice slow lap, no hop, tires round , no noise, no tip. So far so good now to pick up the pace a bit and see if I can duplicate the video performance.
No problem this little bugeye was stuck down and followed the track relentlessly .
Great balance , perfect amount of tail out slide and acceleration was impressive.
Braking equally so.
I kept getting faster and faster and finally after surpassing my other sports cars in this class I stopped pushing.
Am I impressed Most definitely, will I purchase thenothers as they come out you bet.
This is one of the prettiest and most enjoyable cars I have ran in a long long time.
Congrats to Studio 65 on a well put together iconic little beast.
Well done Emma and John
Thanks for such a great little car, and right out of the box.
Bob.

Received mine two days ago. Quite nice! Clever motor installation and simple (in the best way) chassis design. Fine finish work on a body much thinner than expected. Very pleased. Anxious to get it on a track.

Two thumbs up.
