I may be wrong here, but have you guys ever looked at the fujin/3racing cars? The parts similarities and compatibility with the 416 is ridiculous. Perhaps it is all chinese?
Tron, don't worry I am not too hard up for a car at the moment and a couple of close friends said I was basically stupid if I didn't get the 417 and one of them drives for Xray (the other tamiya) plus I was disappointed with the quality of the RC8 compared to say Xray or Mugen ever since Thunder Tiger took over so the brand is not the TC3 that we remember.
So the US release date is still mid January or so?
