Where did you get that fact from? I have talked to a couple of dealers that deal in them, and they have never heard or read about that number. :confused and come to think of it, 5,000 of them is not really an LE specially if it is 5K of each color.
Kyosho Ferraris are more than comparable to any AUTOart model. My 308 GTB QV has a lot of detail, especailly for a $49 USD model. It is better than any of my AutoArts for the same price. The only AUTOart I currently have that can compet with it is my Benz 190E Evo II
