My only "complaint" in there was the lack of floppy body mount thingies. I'm sure Xray, Tamiya, AE, or someone else's will fit for under $10. And it comes with the long ones in the rear to support the back end.

I'm soooo tempted to pre-order, but I'm a bit too heavily invested in my current cars at the moment.

Yeah, the Spec R XRAY body post set retails for $5.30. Maybe, they are looking at the screw body post thingies as aftermarket options for it.

I am also tempted in getting one for myself, however it is a bit counterproductive when the RSD6 is an ever-evolving platform.

But you'd be able to provide much better support to your Spec-R customers if you were familiar with the car.

How about you guys buy the car first and then start giving ideas what does not work or has to be improved before shouting for tuning options

I am so close to pulling the trigger on this thing but I just can't justify the expense right now! AHHH!!! I was about to check out and Paypal had some hiccup and I thought I'd better wait and quit the process.

Kensei, do a google search, I am sure you can find a bunch of info on Xenon spurs.

Pulled the trigger on this finally, enough procrastinating! I'd like to thank Christian Tabush for being Ta-Man and helping me out with my order and being VERY responsive in my purchase from him. Great guy! Can't wait to get it and see what all I can break during assembly! Reflex Racing will be my source for all my parts in the future with service like what I received (I'm a problem customer but he worked with me to get my issues handled.)(sorry for the Pun on your name!)

David, no problem.

Now for the good news. The Spec-R R1's are on the way to stores as we speak!

Nice when a company can hit the date for a release!

Actually cristian, priority is expensive for international postage. It's like 40$ but standard is around 10-20$ . You have the ems price about right tho. I'm just basing it off my last visit to the USPS store. Either way I should be pre ordering the r1 either tonight or tomorrow from your site. Btw I like your work on your current product offerings. Haven't purchased any myself but I have seen it and I like what I have seen. Keep up the good work.
