thanks for the pics. nice to see option parts already on the way. The gear diff has an interesting component to use a spring for diff hardness.

Seems US distribution is delayed. Wonder if it got passed on the the Asian market due to popular demand?

So far the car is reminding me ALOT of the MicroRS4 but w/ independent rear suspension Looks to be a lot of fun.

Hmm...the tires on the Cup Racer seem smaller in width than Tamiya mini tires. I wonder if diameter is the same...

i found this part number for just the body on the european site

DATSUN 510 BODY (WB225mm.F0/R3mm)Spacer# 7209

the one you have Dark might be the kit number

and if anyone is looking for the 510 kit there are a few on ebay for $250 shipped
