I’m certainly not experienced enough with true 1/64 scale models to give you guys a proper review, but in my opinion the ride height is just a tad too high. This truck isn’t meant to take to Home Depot for a weekend lumber run to build the kids a play fort. It’s a stoplight sleeper that eats unassuming Ferrari’s for lunch. I also noticed that the rubber tires seemed to be bent out of shape a little, and wouldn’t sit right on the rim. Both issues are captured in this photo here:

All in all though, I’m happy to have one of my favorite automobiles from the Radwood era represented in my collection. No one has manufactured the Syclone in 1:18 scale yet. This truck is definitely on my bucket list of cars to own one day, so if everyone could stop buying them and driving the prices up, that would be great.
