100 pound VAT would had to have been a large order, VAT is what 20% so you had a 500 pound order.

Most parts places will only put 30% of the value of the item on the customs declarations. Find a better shop to buy from, one that wont screw you for VAT on the customs declaration.

rcMart usually under values the contents on the declaration to about 10% of the price

I thought I still have the box I recieved my tekin 8.5T motor ($130rrp) a savox sc-1251mg servo($60rrp) and a PowerHD 1207TG servo ($40rrp) approx. The declaration says US$10

Nice! Thx for posting that...a while back, I had ordered a set of the arms from skr8pn but havent heard from him.

And I saw your post about him being MIA at DM...any news? I hope he is ok

Square 13T aluminum pulleys are in stock at rc-race-and-drift-japan. I couldn't find my 3rd pulley. So just ordered a new one so I can get back to 2.14 CS ratio

A friend made them for me after he tried my KPI mod and designed these arms for it, so far about 5 people are running their D3's with the KPI mod using cut down front arms. eunique and exita are two on this forum

these are my first arms cut down for the KPI mod with plastic MST knuckles and yokomo upper arms


and with the Square R31 CVD's although I hadn't had the ackerman angle sorted out at this stage


this is how it is now and this isn't full lock

do you only look at the pictures? you have to make it yourself there's more info on how it's done on the Drift Mission forums under guides/suspension tuning 101.
I don't think anyone will be able to get the arms I've got now, atleast while skr8pn is MIA and that also depends on whether he wants to make any more?
