MMMMM....... Gold..........

You better tell us when this stuff is available asap

I may have to find some ways of "finding" the money for a special edition kit

I notice the chassis pics you posted have no way of mounting a battery strap, looks like tape only which will be a bit of a pain. Although the standard holes and allloy strap would probably get in the way of the spur gear Any chance they could add the holes a little further out and anodize an alloy strap the colour of the kit too a couple of alloy posts would be good also

Aren't Xenon basicly the same as Speedway PAL?

I just looked at that record holding cuda pic again, whats with the dark coloured rear diff?

I don't suppose you've ever tried short arms on one end of the car and long arms on the other? just a crazy idea that occured to me, maybe the steam from the stripping machine is getting to me

It`s called RIT Dye.... you can change the color of wheels and other plastic stuff with it...I don`t know if you can get it in your neck of the woods thoought ...if you need some and in a specific color hit me up..I might be able to help..

Actually..I was thinking about this this past weekend...but it might make the car very unstable....but then again I haven`t tried it ......... . . .. Yet

ah, didn't think of dying the diffs, seen it done on wheels before of course. People tend to use clothes dye, although I think it takes a little longer to get a decent amount of colour into the parts.

Rit clothes dye works fine for me, I have died just about everything you can think of. You cant just let the part sit in the dye though, you have to boil it for a few mins.

HEHE, just worked out what 58000 yen is in pounds, compared to other top spec kits it's not actually that bad for UK prices compared to a World Edition Tamiya it's very cheap

wow, I had heard you guys paid a lot for cars, 58000 yen is a lot of money to spend on an RC car here in the states, I think the average car would cost about 30000 yen, possibly less.
