I'm from Europe, so pleas help me find a good offer!? I doubt you can

Kamikaze is offering the car for $599,99 is this with tax? If i try to buy from US I pay for shipment, import tax, customs ... bla bla bla plus better not to mention the waiting and all the procedures.

That's how it is Europe is way more expensive then US.

Has anyone heard from the guys that have the car (factory test drivers that is) how easy the car is to set up and what it drives like? Someone that have spoken to Rick V has said that he has found the car has a small sweet spot, which is not like Mugens cars in the past.

I'm looking into getting back to racing. Is this car out yet? I used to run another brand in the past, but this car looks really good. Is the performance also good? How it compares to the previous version?
The durability of the MRX4 was superb (specially for not so expert drivers like me). Is this new car at the same level in that area?.

Thanks for the feedback

If you read the previous posts / pages, you will find that the new car is not out yet.

Let's hope the new car is as good as the model it replaces.

Thanks OCC, i follow your suggestion and went back and read the thread. It took some time to read it all......LOL
Wow there is a lot of hype, high hopes and expectations on this car. Makes me feel good about the car even if most of the people like me, have this hopes for the reputation of the MRX4 i guess, since the car is not in the hands of the end users.
I am only kind of surprised that at the US debut, with all the top US drivers, the car was not able to TQ or Win the race.

Also the durability is till something that worries me. That front end looks killer, but for sure not as robust as the previous car. I hope i'm wrong
