Tamiya USA prices are always crazy... figure RCmart or someone in the EU may have a better deal going.

...even if they do have it in stock and ready to ship prior to the ship date, I still would not order it. Their shipping price is $72 USD~!

Rcjaz is in general more expensive but somehow gets everything early

A lot of places have them we just are not allowed to sell them YET! , they just may chose to not follow the rules of the worldwide release date

RCJAZ is expensive with everything... they cater to the "must have it now crowd".

In other news has anyone else had issues with the arms being fragile... like to know before my TB 06 evo gets a rebuild over the winter, to decide if im going back to 419 arms (which seems to be a 99% chance anyway).

So far the new suspension parts have held up fine for me, even in crashes where I'd expect something to break had it been the 419 parts. But there are people who have broken them (419 or Evo 5 thread), the new arms are the weakest around the area of the bushing insert, when the chub bends it may crack that area of the arm.
