Blimey! Enjoy yourself out there bud. I'd recommend onroad, I've become hooked on it (Again). The 417 is such a quick car, I've really enjoyed racing it.

They certainly are, bought from their store many times, they just seem to be out of stock on a number of parts. Maybe they are waiting for the new car before they do an inventory refil.

Will the new servo mount be a direct swap to the existing 417X chassis, or is it a different hole pattern?

It wont fit. The hole pattern looks the same but it has an additional pin at the front which there is no hole for on the X chassis

lol welcome to inflation and the weak dollar.

Correction, the MSRP went up on the car according to RC Champ:
83,790yen ⇒ sale price 50,274yen = $636.86
with the intl transfer fee and S/h we are looking at a $700 car
