Conclusion

I got my Kyosho for around 70CAD and the Autoart for around 60CAD. The Autoart was recently re-released (Feb/06) so it should be easy to find everywhere. The Kyosho was recently released as well, but it seems to be quite popular and is flying off shelves. For the prices I got them for, I think both are worth the price. Both have their hits and misses, so I cannot really recommend one over the other, as it all depends on what you deem important. If you want a better exterior, go for the Kyosho. If you want the better rims/wheels combo, go for the Autoart.

Summary and Scoring :: AUTOart

 

Exterior
Older release means painted lights in some areas, but the full perforated grills are nice.

  7.0  
  Wheels and Tires
Great rims and brakes. Callipers could be more detailed. Undercarriage is boring.
  8.0  
 

Interior
Decent details, gear shifter is especially good. Hard plastic seats annoy.

Good engine.
