Treat the FRP just the same a graphite. ITs fiber glass chassis or a fiber type chassis that can fray so seal it

Oh absolutely. I'm just glad to see prices that aren't out of this world. I remember I bought my Pro 4 new for $275 a couple od years ago...I've been looking for a good car at that price ever since

129.00 British Pound = 243.909 US Dollar

Saw that modelsport uk was selling them for this much (129.00). If the car sells in the 240-250 range then good deal. These things are going to fly of the shell I can tell you that much, no doubt at all.

I would expect the price in the US to be much cheaper than this as it usually is. You can't really do a straight currency conversion as the US always seems to get things for cheaper than in the UK.

The 139.99 is the list price and includes sales tax, so the net price is 119.15 GBP which is around $220.

$199.00 sound to low to be true. They will fly off the shelfs at that price.

If it is a lie than that would be false advertising and that is against the law. I think that is the right price.
