If you are only running stock the JRXS has a good asphalt setup for it and you already said they stock parts for it. You can get a used one for a decent price and just start from there if the NIB price is too much. You may even want to ask your shop if they would be willing to deal on the kit that is in stock as well. The new car will hopefully be out next month and they may not want that still sitting there since they may want to get the Type R in for sale.
that's a good idea, but i feel that HobbyTownUSA will probably not stike me a deal. maybe if my LHS was a private enterprise, but not a franchise. maybe i can find one on eBay?
