I was wondering about this also, I'm assuming its the same Fast Traxx only with a differnt paint job and modern insides. Thing is nothing can replace the old school Fast Traxx. And the remote that comes with his new Fast Traxx looks silly.

Old tycos were made by taiyo. This because it has lights is probably a bit slower. Look on any fast traxx chasis and you will find taiyo on it somewhere.

they look to be slower from the youtube vids ive seen, i dont think the shipping cost really makes this much a candidate for fixing an original unless ya got lots money to burn
