so how much is the car retailing for here in the US? any finals on that yet?
This is the quote that Rc Champs gave me:
HPI Pro 4 ??28,000
HPI Pro 4 with titanium screws set ??31,500
Item total 59500YEN
Tax 3350YEN (.05% of total +shipping)
paypal 3376YEN (.047% of item, shipping & tax)
Grand total 73726YEN
With the current exchange rate of .0093188 that's $687usd.
but Paypal yen rate is at $704.00+/- $350per kit shipped
RcTech has pre-orders right now for $290.00usd. ($320.00 shipped w/CA resi tax...all other $300+/- )
Tower price is $444.00
I guess if racers are eager to get one... $30.00 more per kit is worth it... not having to wait a month or two before the US get it.
I'm still debating whether to get one now or wait...
The car look great...HPI did a great job this time.
