Aaaargh, I am so full of envy every time I see that Nissan R89-C. Its one of my grail cars but I have never dared ordering one because they are always so far away physically, and my Exoto XJR9 came with a collapsed rear corner and I broke the front suspension by turning the wheels once(!). So, so fragile.
