as for the best place to preorder in Australia, our website shows Hobbies Australia as our distributor. www.hobbiesaustralia.com.au

Here ya go

They haven't yet no, maybe if you ring them they will have now, it's been a cpl of days since I spoke with them, yes the serpent mid is nice.

I've preorder mine from Towerhobbies just incase Rippit don't come through.

Snoopin around... found this pic of a stock body. I know we've seen them, but this is just a little different angle.

I really like how it hugs back under.

Getting pretty stoked!

It looks awesome! I can't really paint where I am at, and I'm not moving till June, so I am going to have to do a simple spray bomb on the kit body

turnbuckles done. the plastic feels soft. but the turnbuckles go in way deep, you will not rip one out is my guess. It even comes with spare ballcups

I would suggest you e-mail Lunsford Titanium and get a set of Ti rods on the way. Mr. Tessman put the lengths he uses a few pages back. The steel will bend over time and can wreck the ballcups as well. Here is the contact page link.

A few guys at my track have been snapping Lundford TI turnbuckles like they are twigs, I'm not sold on their performance.

Holy cow, really? I don't think I have ever seen one break, and I know I have never broken one myself. I am going to run the kit turnbuckles on my D413 and upgrade them all if any of them bend/break.
