OVER PRICED...!

$150 - $175 for the entire set --- (and I'd have to "Think" about it)

$125 - $140 for the entire set --- (I'd buy NOW!)

It's a great idea, and I hope you guys make a grillion dollars for trying to do something nice (and much needed) for a great car like the RDX. That said, US $250 is obscene. Sorry. :-(

Great product. You are nuts if you think anyone is going to pay more than half the price of the kit for a set of bulkheads. $258 for a full set is way too high. Hell, $90 for the Specialized offset motor mount seems too steep.

If that is where this HOBBY is going then I am going to start selling $200 servos, $400 battery packs, and $1000 car kits right now. Any takers???

Stop complaining they seem overpriced to YOU because the exchange rate is not favourable, but for anyone in the UK this is the normal price for the bulkheads, and for knowing the cost of machining this kind of parts I can tell you they're not making a lot of money.

Just what it says slappy. Corally can make a good car even better by adding goodies / upgrades. Not like the rest of the TC world coming out with new kits evey 6 months. RDX still kicking ass every race brutha.

What's this mean - wut's???

I'll spend 75 bucks to make my car look better but not be faster, im not going to spend 275 on something that makes rebuilding diffs 2 minutes quicker. Oh and if you build them right you dont have to rebuild your diffs in the RDX for months

It's not, and neither is the offset motor mount. There's been a few people suggest that Corally is working on something similar to this for the RDX, but nothing official.

The issue with the exchange rate is unfortunate. I'm sure this will sell well around the world where people are used to the price, but it might be tough a tough sell in the US. When selling to a new market, you either meet the price the market demands, or you price yourself right out of it. It's simple economics.

Why would you even want to sell the original version? It appears that everybody with enough cash (including all the pro drivers) are getting the $90.00 dollar offset motor mount.
