Well 58000 yen works out to about Ł310, a Losi G+ is Ł260, like a lot of other top kits. A Tamiya 414 world edition costs over Ł500 and I don't know how they sell any of them. The new Corrally is Ł400, compared to those the Cuda isn't bad at all. If it was sold in the UK wouldn't be suprised if the limited edition versions would be priced in the Tamiya range
I know there is a lot of tax and import costs on kits but sometimes you really can't justify a 300% price increase

Not bad for a car that quality, less than the Web Edition, but nothing like orange

Although this is way off topic, i thought i should share...

Some info concerning the new G5 by Apple...

"The Power Mac G5 is the world’s fastest personal computer and the first with a 64-bit processor — which means it breaks the 4 gigabyte barrier and can use up to 8 gigabytes of main memory. The new G5 processor — available at speeds up to dual 2GHz with a new ultrahigh-bandwidth system architecture featuring AGP 8X and PCI-X"

Help me?
