I'm down under.. I'm sure if I pay $250 for the car and another $250 for shipping, it'll still be cheaper than the local prices.. (I might get a plane ticket instead though...)

Of course I'm open to any other ideas/advices.. Thanks..

I have just ordered the Fw-05R kit. What are the essential hop ups required?

Does it come with a front one way?
Does it come with a metal brake disk?

I think the carbon top deck is a must?

Just the bits required to make it competetive

Cheers

Try RC champ www.rc-champ.co.jp (i think) Find an email there, and then give them a mail.

The only bad thing is that you have pay quite a bit for paypal and tax (which is charged if u use paypal to pay)

And another bad thing is, if you receive a defective product, they wont help you out.

or try www.pro-s-futaba.co.jp
They got everything u ever need. Shipping is reasonable, just the prices are sometimes a bit higher. However, some other parts, such as Mugen and Kawahara, are about 25 ~30% off (VERY cheap)


I have a few more stores which I know. However, they dont have websites, and I cant remember their email addresses at the moment. PM me if interestd


Hope this helps buddy

Oh yeah, by the way, Ishiimokei was out of FW05R a few months ago already, so I wouldnt expect them to have any in stock soon.

Hi

I just ordered an FW-=05 and a friend says there are 2 version, one of which you cant run foam tyres on. Is that correct? How do I know which one I have ordered? Are there 2 different part numbers?

Cheers
