u can count them on your fingers, they are very expensive (twice the price of HK, really!) and u just can find in general kyosho or tamiya (entry level kits)
but i've been several times to the US and in the big cities it s pretty hard to find good hobbyshops , all of them are in suburbs, near a track (same ting in Taipei, in town there is no choice, prices are very high, but outside, it is very easy to find cool shops).

still "waiting for my man"!

Hi Ralf.

How did you get your SD?

Did it come through the French distributor?

Regards

Utieh,

Could you tell me what youpaid Japan and what the postage charges were?

I sell Yokomos and have one ordered through CML. But I will be happy to order one direct from Japan if it gets here quicker.

Thanks for your help.

regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Ralf, nothing special you need to do during assembly. Just try it with the stock setup first. I have my current setup posted on my website. www.mo-net.ws

icon,

when you get your new email set up, send me an email with that new address and I'll update your pre-order with it.

Guys, today will be the last day for pre-ordering on our site, some of you on this thread already got the pre-order in and the price. We are guaranteed to be able to fill our first batch

Thanks

Steve Wang

utieh, I think the easiest way would be to take some 150 grit sand paper and wrap it around a popsicle stick or something similar and use that to bevel the edges then CA them. I would recommend sanding all the edges on the chassis and upper deck so that there are no sharp edges and also CA them. This will help prevent the chassis from splitting and help reduce the chance of cutting wires or shorting the batteries.
