Top Secret info....I will have to shoot you if I tell you..

Getting it from RcChamps in Japan.

Contact them at: champ_international@yahoo.co.jp

The best thing though...is that they take PayPal but with a fee of 540YEN+4%...so the STD. kit is about $252usd + shipping.
I don't have a final price yet for shipping... still in the process of finalizing the order.... but from my past orders on kits...I estimate about $30.00 for EMS priority shipping

still cheaper than Tower price of $444.00++++

**Note: I have ordered 2 kits.... if my bro doesn't take the other...than it's up for grabs. or go on ebay.

So are these shipping now then? I don't see the point of using paypal unless you don't have a credit card... What will the street price be from regular online retailers (not tower, they're crooks).

The kits starts shipping yesterday. RcChamps has them already in stock. US street price around $300.00+/- RcTech has them for $290. estimated price.

if you don't have a credit card..you're pretty much out of luck in trying to order overseas. They will also do a bank transfer but that will delay your order for over a week and pay bank fees as well.

HPI Japan wherehouse truck loads of Pro4's ready to be shipped:

RC Zombie,

Do you have the web address for RC Champs. I would like to make an order also.

Does anyone else know of where I can place an overseas order for the PRO4. I am living in the UK where the kit will not be out until January and will be around 290 (not US$).

Thanks,
Yorkie

How is rc champ able to sell them at 238 when street price is around 300 everywhere else? Seems like a great deal though... even with shipping you're coming out ahead.

Racers are demanding more and more things to be included in the kits. Majority of the high priced kits are marketed toward serious competative racing. A sport version may come out later on next year..... take a look at the SD... the Pro level kit was released first...and followed up with a sport version that is coming out soon.

Financing is avialable on the Pro4... put it on your Visa, MC or Amex...

According to speedtech, the release date has been pushed back to sometime in Jan. Gives me time to save up a few more bucks I guess but I hate when things get pushed back.
