Any idea if the Spice wheels will hit US shores? if so, who will be distributing them?

edit: Never mind... RC Market has them... I feel stupider than normal

try this link and ebay:
http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....roducts_id=955

I also use the Team Orion Carbon 3200Mah lipo. More punch and power at less than half the weight of 4200Nimh.
