i know you guys have probably talked this to death
but forgive me as a newcomer
is this any good as ive read some rather disconcerting reports that people just cant get the thing to run properly
thinking of investing just for the hell of it any just wanted to know if its worth the money and if it gives the pleasure the literature professes??

Or you can save money by trying a "do it yourself" challenger.

Take a roll of thin tape. Run your car, note your lift points, lay down some tape on one rail. With a little work you will dial in that car to a perfect lap. No brakes, but you will be amazed at how difficult it is to catch and pass with a similar car.

Roll of tape for a few pennies: pennies
Challenger: money you could buy cars with.

Learning how to race against someone who never makes a mistake and is RUDE: priceless.
