Anybody play with theirs?

Hi, I'm just wondering if anybody still play's with their Lite? I notice how dead this section of the forum is. I still bring mine to the track for fun. However, last time I bought it steering was weird.
Think the Dnano would bare better success?
Anybody want to post pictures of their Lite here?

First off, the Lite was expensive when it first came out, around 200 buck's. Secondly, it's not very competative. Oh, and they didn't offer a lot of bodies to choose from. So, no, not very successful. Still, some of us do have theme, and I was just wondering if anybody play's with theirs, takes theme to the track once in a while or what.

I have to say no, nobody races their Lite? The only issue with my Mini Cooper is it need's wider wheel's. It's such a top-heavy car that it like's to flip out a lot. Plus, latetly my steering's been acting funny.

I never bought one because in my opinion it was a step backward when the rest of the Z line was going forward into more pure racing bodies and styles. Sure it's "cute" to have a old school Mini but why would you want to run it when you can run almost any race car you want. Z's started out as regular cars with a few race versions of regular cars, then advanced into pure race bodies with the Super GT bodies and now the Le Mans bodies.

Lit is evolutionary dead end!

i have one i mean, how could i not!

do i ever take it out of the closet, no. it drives like an expensive peice of poo. i've said it a hundred times by now, the dnano is everything the lit should have been. it really makes the lit look like the failed product it is which is a huge shame as we all had very high hopes for the lit

biggest downfall really, price point. that alone killed it.

Do you think the Mini Cooper from the Lite could possibley fit the Dnano chassis? Or is the Dnano so much smaller?
It's just somthing nice to have in the collection. I wonder if the Lite was a secret prototype pet project to become the Dnano later on.
