Default MP9 with Sirio Evo IV BK

As some would know, I'm not getting the MP9 from ebay already posted "Is this too good to be true?" thread. Does the attached link look like a good deal. I'm not sure about the model sirio it comes with. I think it's just a standard, not STI, but for approx $720USD, it looks pretty good to me, I just wont get the GO 7 port i was after just yet.

It should be a good deal. Part number should be 31782S21. I think it comes with the exhaust, but I'm not 100% sure though. From what I have looked over on this kit on several sites, it looks like the exhaust is included.

Yeah doesn't look like it has the exhaust, but still looks a good deal to me.

it doesn't say pipe in the list of equipment required so it may well be included

you could always send them an email and find out

I think the pipe is actually included, checked out the Kyosho website, and it is definately shown in all the pics, Ordered it anyway, and if it needs a pipe when it gets here, then I'll chase one up through my LHS. (My LHS couldn't match this deal, so he said just order it) I'm getting my servo's and reciever locally though

If your worried about paying the money and getting your kit it's always a safe bet to deal with main stream shops like amain or carolinas rc.

I was looking and found this:

http://www.carolinasrc.com/Webstore/Scripts/default.asp

If you look down the kit is $799 and they have the "holiday" 10% off special that should get ya down to $719.

I have always delt with Amain(in the past) and now carolinas without any issues ever.

I do know carolinas ships international all the time and I would think it would not be to high for your kit.

$720 USD for a new MP9 wih a new Sirio .21? Looks like a screaming deal to me, and without any risk/stress. That Sirio will be a great performer. I seriously doubt you will win any fewer races with it than you'd have with that Go motor.

$1199 Australian (Including engine, check link above) = $730ish US @ current exchange rates. To get the MP9 kit from amain was gonna cost me $1300 Australian shipped
