Subjective I know, but I am having to be really careful how many more cars I add to my collection so briefly if I could only buy one of the available RS200s (not counting the 'old' ones, which is best and why? PS, I only race for fun and do have some shelf queens...

Thanks for the opinions and expertise.

Ordinarily I'd agree. Every fibre of my being screams out that this is the right and virtuous way to slot.

And yet...

Shuffles feet and looks at the floor...

I got an NSR Ford Mk.IV and it's fantastic. Utterly and absolutely wrong, but a work of evil genius. So smooth! So fast! So sideways!

And watching MSCs honking round our track broadside is like... well... like getting a lapdance from Jennifer Aniston on the day you get back from honeymoon. You know that you shouldn't be enjoying it, but at the same time...

Exactly. That's why Brad's an SCX guy. I asked for his guidance on this one and he said 'no brainer, dude... get the prehistoric Spanish one, it'll be nice.'
Given that the reason AutoArt cars perform so badly is its insistence on using scale measurements... if you're that fussed, take the widscreen off the AutoArt Sierra and see which one it fits. The RS200 had about 40% in common with the Sierra and the windscreen was the biggest external part.
