Not So Fast

Back when Faster Than Ever wheels were a new thing, they were added to castings without any special fanfare. This Pikes Peak Tacoma was released both with FTE wheels and without.

I am a definite fan of this casting. There are a ton of variations to collect, and the detail on the model is well done as well. I love this particular car's finish even though a manufacturing flaw means the rear wheels foul on the fenders -- totally eliminating any advantage that FTE wheels would grant.


I have a bunch of these, and I like them, so we'll be seeing more of them in the future.
