I don't have many models made by Ninco but their Lotus Exige model has always tempted me because (a) the NSCC selected it as their Club Car in 2009, and (b) it's a Lotus. And one of the online stores had it half-price last week so I grabbed one. It looks delicate with the long mirror stalks and high spoiler, but the mirrors and the struts for the spoiler are rubber not plastic, so should provide some flexibility if/when the Lotus goes rolling at one of the tight bends.
This model has a fast anglewinder motor as you can see in the last picture - the motor is mounted on a slant and engages directly with a gear next to the right rear wheel. A great little car.
