i found on f1store.com this 1:18 2011 RB7 remote control car and it is for 37$ http://f1store.formu....aspx?pid=96731

this is half the price or less of the minichamps 1:18 car . is there a big difference between the two ?

Massive difference, the Minichamps 1:18 will have so much more detail.

I guess it depends what you would be using it for and how bothered you are about accuracy too.

Also this might help: http://www.leighsdia...=1336048295/0#0 a review about the minichamps version.

All the stuff like the underside, suspension, engine, cockpit etc will be all but non-existent on the remote control one, whereas on a minichamps model it will be a pretty decent attempt to model it. It really depends on what you want, the remote control one is a toy, the minichamps a display model.
