I guessing the upgrade kit will be almost the same cost since the flex motor mount, 8.5 steering plate, or the 2015 top deck won't be included.

Had the first shakedown runs today. Car feels great with a noticeable improvement in side bite and bump handling. Kit setup very close to lap times of the old car. I run on a tight low grip track so by the end of the day added a front diff. Dropped the front shock one hole and went to 450 oil and it felt awesome, running some of the fastest laps I have ever made. Very happy with the changes.

All my stuff comes through the Australian disty JPM hobbies. The first batch has been sold out but there will be another in 2 to 3 weeks.
East coast hobbies is the disty website or any shop that buys from JPM such as riverstone.

Looks like Viper is taking preorders for the 2015.

Received my new 2015 kit from Hobby Velocity yesterday. Started throwing a wrench to it last night. Absolutely loving this kit, very high quality. And the ease of throwing this together is remarkable and let's not forget it looks stunning.

I'll post up some pics when I finish it up today.

Hey Joven, Black edition would be bad ass! Any ideas on the release date? I'll wait for the black edition and use my 2013 for now
