Just to try to answer some of the questions from page 16 - the car will not be released in Switzerland first, if the team guys there (most likely Orion drivers as TO has their base in Switzerland) say they will be getting the cars in mid-August then I guess that's the info they have and they'll probably be getting some pre-release kits. Meaning, the parts will be in plastic bags, no boxes or printed materials, other than a photocopied instruction manual, etc.
I'd guess that typical with most kits coming from Asia, Hong Kong, Japan, etc., will get the car first, then (because of shipping, Customs, etc.) racers on the West Coast of the US and very close to Asia (like Australia), then the East Coast very soon after, then Europe and the rest of the world (again because of shipping, Customs, etc.). Of course there's not much separation between release times, I'd guess that within a month or two of the car being officially shipped in Asia it will be available on mainland Europe. Surface shipping (cargo ship) takes about two weeks from Asia to California, then Customs and the distribution process, then another 3 or 4 weeks to ship to the UK. The HB distribution hub for the EU is in the UK so UK drivers will probably be able to get it first out of the EU racers.
I forget what is exactly included in the kit but it's a lot
So $450 isn't as much as you think when you consider all the tuning parts. I would guess that Hara is still using the black HPI springs, since IIRC he specified exactly what he wanted for the Pro 4.
