I got them from RC Champ. They don't have the kit but they do have the parts.

I ordered them in a lump sum to save shipping and ask them to classify them as a gift to save custom.

did you buy from them recently? I sent them an email to order one week ago for parts for my TF6SP and no news from them!

We never get the cool cars. The Kyosho and new yokomo look killer. It's all x ray or associated :/

waiting is a bitch... shipping from Europe is expensive. I live in the netherlands and have to pay 30 euro's to ship a package to the US, basis version. I guess shipping from Germany is just as expensive. If its already in Canada in customs you should receive it in a few weeks, they have their own rules and timescedules for processing foreign package (here it's 30 days).
It will be worth the wait ;-)

Yes that is to allow the end of the sway bar to go though the cup.. Not sure if its the best way but I used a remer to generate the holes.

Another quick yet obvious thing to check the shock top type. These are from two different plastic sheets. Few people made that mistake on the build so shocks feel different

The steel CVd are about to hit the shops they will be a must
