Yes it uses the Tamtech RC car body on a curbside chassis. For this reason the radiator intakes in the door are very shallow. I love this car. Looking forward to your build.

Oh, it makes sense to me now! I always wondered why those radiators inlets were like that - the Hasegawa 962 inlets are much better.

Yes that's about the only thing better about the Hasegawa kit in my opinion.

What's always been a head scratcher for me is the inclusion of the rear brake cooler hoses on the 962 with the sealed rear body and the omission of them from the "full detail" 956 kit.

I do have a full detail one in my stash never noticed the omission when I opened it up.  Very odd
