The blue body posts are from www.rainbowten.co.jp
Is that the Kai chassis on your car FUK? and where did you get it from?

thanks

Cuz i'm looking for the racy bumper brace....

Thanks
Im trying to get that also, i got this off a friend who brings racy parts to Australia. My carbon fiber bumper brace will come next week maybe ill just pass it on to you if you like.

But you know when i went to Japan there was a Racy parts in Super RC in Akihabara im preety sure they have the brace in stock because i went there to get these racy bulkheads, but they had none.

It's ok, since it's hard to come by, I don't wanna take it away from you.

I don't really need it... it's more of the "look" factor... probably will only go on one of my 414 collection and just set there look pretty. I don't think I will ever put it on a car that I race. cuz I will never want a pretty bumper brace to get damnaged in any kind of crash~!!

I ordered from a Japan hobby store before.... just don't like it the way it is done. Meaning... even though I waited on a good "currency exchange" date to purchase it... the final rate that is applied to the purchase is always a big surprise... plus the shipping fee is always kinda expensive for package out of Japan... plus... there is a bank currency exchange fee.... just too much FEE in between a single purchase.....
