never tried there diffs, but I did try there Turbo sliding Clutch, and it rocks! Easiest clutch ever to install, and it worked great, wore well, and total set-up was about $75. The only thing I didnt like was the flywheel. Its like the size of a quarter, and very difficult for the starter box to grab

Sounds like a gem of a shoe. I really like the no washer idea and the extra sets of springs. I run the Ofna Purple shoes with the Gold springs and they are $22 bones. Purchase Two sets of those shoes from answer to include shipping and the price comes out to $38.80, sounds like a bargain to me!

The USA distributor is a small organiz(s for the UK ;-)ation whom are very excited to get things moving. The hold up is our end as we are waiting for bearing stock to arrive.

We have been shipping to the US at very good pricing to get the shoes out there and in your hands trying them.

I'm now the US Distributor for Answer-RC products. I will be fully stocked soon and will be ready to fill orders as soon as Pete gets the remaining bearings in. At this point you can back order anything on the site, but will update again when stock is in hand. I'm also looking for and would prefer to sell the products to dealers/lhs, so please spread the word. I've created a coupon for rctech called 'rctech' worth 20% off from the site. Please excuse the site... While I'm a long time IT professional this is my first real attempt at web based work.

Sylvain,

Thanks for the excellent review of the product! YGPM

Got mine yesterday! Peter shipped them from UK. I'll post my opinions once I run em. My shoes now are new in my Truggy/buggy, so it may be a few weeks till i need to change em, but if you take care of people like Peter does, you'll do OK

Thanks to the guys who went direct with us initially and got the product out there - I think pretty much all of you have had good experiences.
I now hand over to Mike for your side of the pond who will look after you just as well!

Pete
