I ordered my TKI 2 from Japan on Friday July 23rd and recieved it on Tuesday July 27th. I paid $893.00 in U.S. currency shipped. But I paid for the fastest shipping which cost like $100.00 in U.S. I could of got it cheaper if I wasnt so impatient.

7 gallons on the original set of bearings in my TKI and still in the car

Original Clutch bell bearings lasted 3 1/2 gallons.

My only issue is their statement that it was going to be less.

After that yes still one of the best cars you can buy

In this case I will have to respectfully disagree, But If your willing to pay that for it I hope you will feel it was worth it to you.

I feel paying for quality is just fine , do u go to a nice restaurant , let's say 60$/plate and expect to get low quality? Or a cheaper deal ?

I do Wish the price was a lil lower but it is What it is

$770 for the tki2, is the quality that much better than whats out there now? By quality, I mean fit/finish and durability, the whole package.

I love my MP9's yes the quality of the kit in every category is spot on. Once you run the buggy the price tag won't mean much. ( not rich just saying)
