Any local shop worth its salt should be able to order one through Much-More Racing UK, or may have one on the shelf already.

I have the 3.5 mm US version and yes, it is LIPO friendly....

It would help to know where you located !!!

In the US www.topracingusa.com they can refer you to a possible dealer or you can buy direct.
In the UK from Much More UK

Contact TOP USA and they will refer you to a dealer.
There list price is a suggested retail but not teh street price you would get from dealers.

brand new Top Scythe kits are on eBay for $269 shipped. That is the best way to get into a high end electric touring car. Im referring my freind to this car because of its low intro cost and it uses Pro 4 parts!

I should have taken a pic of mine for you... It all fits fine, just between the battery tape holes. It hangs out over the edge of the chassis by about 3mm. This shouldn't be a problem cause you should be using a hardcase lipo anyway.
