Not true. They will charge you if you order direct from their websites unless if you ask them not to. Been there done that... Just email them that you want to purchase a kit with out tax and live in (xxx) and they'll set it up for you. Otherwise you'll be charged tax.

?

European shops include tax in the price. If an American buys a kit from Europe they could ask for the tax to be taken off but they would still be liable for import tax.

I never understood why American shops don't show the true price of goods (inc. tax), it doesn't make sense.

Tax is different in each state and you only have to pay tax if you live in that state. Since I live in North Carolina I do not have to pay tax on an RC car if I order it from a California hobby shop. Tax free for me even though both states are in the United States.

I believe 'legally' it's no taxes collected by the seller at the time of purchase since they can not collect taxes for other states, but the buyer is responsible to report said purchase to their home state come tax time and make retribution then,

I know that's how I always do it

The good part of the european tax, is that I, living in sweden, can order from (for example) Tonisport in Germany, without paying anything more than the price for the goods + shipping.
Shipment between Ger - Swe costs the same as Swe - Swe, and the parts ordered are cheaper in Germany than here in Sweden due to (among other things) currencies and exchange rates.

If I order from US or Asia, 25%(!!!) of the total (items + shipping) is added on plus toll fees at 100sek (approx. $15) plus Postal handling fees at approx $10-20. That's sick.

However, I almost always support my favorite LHS. And that makes me feel guuuuuud.

I've had a good look at the pics and videos of the new car - after all, Yokomo are the only manufacturer taking the belt-drive concept forward at the moment so it is a good preview of what the 2016 cars will be...

Some interesting refinements. Bulkhead braces are a surprise. Forward motor conversion is interesting.

Yokomo being stingy with DCJs and servo mount which is why the European cars are being offered with some Roche options.
