AUD$450.
Ouch.
Although it does come with body and the dollar has dropped a fair bit, so not really surprising.

Will F103 rims/tyres fit the front of the X1 or only the larger diameter F104 rims? Has anyone tried fitting F103 rims/tyres to the front?

Rob after reading the manual the front suspension width isn't adjustable so you are limited to 104 rubber, (or a really silly looking narrow front end with 103 tyres) getting ride height with 103 wheels will probably also be an issue.

It's all about the law of supply and demand. Xray products are in high demand, thus the price.

Correct, but we anticipated on that & still have some in stock & ship worldwide.

We'll do some more extensive writing & pictures of it after the holidays, perhaps a video of it, check out the video we posted earlier to see it in action.

Has anyone weighed the car all in ready to run with rubber tires and hard front wing? If so, please post up, and indicate what electrics used.

Cheers

Considering your picture a few pages back showed roughly 2,340 kits, this would have to be astronomical sales or somebody was doing some cropping.

I'll go with the second guess.

I'm gonna go on a limb and assume that the spur and pinion gears are 64P?
