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

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.
