Ooh, how much is the pre-order for that then?
Do you have to be in Japan to buy it?
I really want one for my blue cuda, indoors is coming and there'll be a few more crashes to survive....
is the pre-order going to be for a very limited number of them and is it filling quickly?

Hehe, look at the pic, there is a different motor mount, top deck and chassis this is a Xenon conversion which allows much easier spur gear replacement and holds the spur so it will be wobble free.

Thats not Dave's car
Plus you can buy diodes for a fraction of that price
I've seen motor caps for sale by TrickBits for 2, I can go to an electronics store and get them for about 7pence each
You can get suitable diodes for about 50pence.
This is an area where RC companies like to make a lot of cash for a bit of packaging, like their 15 ESC capacitors, about 1000% profit there

Thats great news Steve
Two web editions I'll count the minutes until they're snapped up shouldn't be long, if only I had the money for the one with the tool kit

Macky,

I only got one email from you. If you sent a second one, then I didn't get it, please send it again.
