What is GunBuster XTO

To someone who doesn't read japanese, it's really weird.

It's actually called "Super Cowled Mini 4WD Super Factory" or something similar, and the GunBuster XTO part refers to the model car body that comes with the game. I think it fits some generic model RC chassis from Tamiya.

As far as I can tell (and I haven't looked that hard at it), all you do is tweak the set up of your car and maybe buy new parts for it because, as far as I can tell, all the racing involves is letting the car go and waiting for the 'race' to finish.

I might have to try to look at it again, but there's only so many times you can beat your head against a brick wall...
Yes you actually buy parts of the car to build it and then you can tune them up, buying new more powerful engines and stuff ; I had a friend who was fond of these toys...
What ?? this game is not playable like an another racing game ?? So I saved money by not buying it.
No it's not a racing game. It's truely a simulation of the real R/C car circuit race except it adds some anime chars and plot.

Ok I know how to describe this. It's a racing game. But you're not driving.
