This is the Cheetah I bought last week after seeing my friends yellow one ,  and boy is it nice !  This one has all of the racing goodies plus the blue line tires . :)

 

I was able to compare it to my Cox Cheetah body and they are the exact same size and shape ,  but the Carrera body definitely has been reworked and is better detailed .  The embarrassing thing is that I paid more for the Cox body ! :blink:

 

I'm planning a build with opening front and a fully detailed engine ,  so now I have to decide which one to cut up .  The Carrera looks great the way it is and came in a very nice display case to boot !

It's going to be my detailed build ,  the silver Cheetah is in my display case !

 

Do they sell the body without the chassis?

 

No ,  but they've been around long enough that parts might start showing up online .

Yes they are ,  but to me they are like diecasts . . .  nice looking but not a model !

I'm still going to build the Cox body and I'm looking forward to seeing yours too !
