for anyone interested, i was at mr toy's today and i noticed they have some new R/C cars for sale
BA V8 supercar (blue with silver "falcon" like dick johnson drove atBathurst in 02')
Phantom (well dark purple not shure if it really is phantom) XR8 ute
They have petrol engines and retail for $599 they do look good.
for more information you could visit you local MR Toys toyworld store.
(btw i am not in anyway affiliated with mr toys)
i really liked them and wish i had a spare 600 big ones.
i'll see if they have any pics on their website.
