The ultimate cure

So far I can remember, I´ve always gotten my kicks out of speed. In 2007, as I accompanied Esu in Stuttgart factory collection, I knew that that particular trip would cost me a lot - sooner or later. One could also say that the cure for a dicease called need4speed was found.

in summer 2008 with help of other carholics we found a "ready set" (in Kyosho terms) in the USA. The purchase decision was pretty much immediate.

The car is juiced and tuned for tracks - it is at it´s best at Nordschleife. However, it´s still a daily work horse - if the race-clutch does not count!

There is no substitute - who ever came up with this phrase, has earned every Deutsch Mark he/she got from inventing it.
