Is this body new ??
This is my personal viewpoint so take it for it's worth. Autoscales are a crapshoot as far as future worth. At today's prices I'm more inclined to buy a white body and paint it myself in a reasonable race scheme rather than do damage to my autoscales. For me half the fun of Mini-Z's is that I can collect something so well done and presentable.
That being said...in a perfect world I'd be able to buy duplicates of the cars I really would like to race so I could race 1 body and display the other. My problem is that I love to race a bunch of different cars ! :D (Like most Z racers I'm sure)

What is the part number for the body you are referring to? MZN- what? I have been told by Kyosho USA that the white bodies would no longer be available but the ASC's would continue.

I think he is talking about the Sauber LM car.

That is totally up to you. You will be able to see it but remember that the dark color will make it difficult for everybody else to see.
