I've been strung along on this kit since 9/27/13 (the day I first saw the post over @ URC.)
http://www.ultimaterc.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=191611

And have also been strung along by a local guy saying he is going to open an indoor offroad rc track in my home town. (Trackside in Brookfield, WI, and 510 Raceway in Foley, MN are my two closet indoor off-road at about 3.5hrs away each...)

Needless to say this winter has been DRAGGING on!!!!

I want the track to open, and I want this buggy!!!

I've wanted a wheeler bad enough I bought a used b44.2...
I hope I can break-even out of that once the T.D. and HotBodies gets the kit released! (unless it is too spendy, then I'll stick with the b44.2)

Thanks, and Good Luck!

I've been running the original d4 for some time now in hopes they would make a new one...so I wouldn't complain too much ppl..it's a long process to release a new car and things don't always go as planned. Anything can happen manufacturing an rc car...it's a toy car peps...we drive toy cars for fun now just relax and Torrence will have this car released before u know it. Price shouldn't really matter because of all the upgrades the car comes with out of the box. The buggy is going to b amazing and we all know it. Just take a chill pill guys.

Their price for a 22 2.0 is $377.65 at the current exchange rate of $1.64 usd to the Pound. http://www.xe.com/ Which is $27 more than US MAP. And the Schumacher SV2 is an equivalent $20 more than the US price.

Their D413 price is 10 Pound higher than the Yoko B-Max 4 III which is $500 at Amain....yea this kit could be spendy.
You can't look at UK prices, we pay fairly heavy import tax and then Value Added Tax of 20% on everything on top of that. This is why so many UK racers order from abroad and private import .... then whinge like bitches when they occassionally get "STUNG" by the duty charges they were trying to avoid paying over the counter.

It is also why so many UK shops have closed down in recent years.

My guess is the car will be comparable with the other quality brands out there (Kyosho / Yokomo / Xray)

Quick question for Torrance, will the be a spur available for stock at first release, I imagine because it's a centre gear diff that no other spurs will be compatible, I'll be running 17.5 stock, what will be the best spur/pinion combo and what is the FDR?

Cheers Justin

Most people are guessing it will price in near the 22-4 or the x-ray. It is nicely dressed so it may come in that high, but until it is listed somewhere in the US all we can do is guess.
