Do you know that a Factory Team TC3 costs Lm 250 (USD 750) from him !!!!!!!

HE SIMPLY DOES NOT ACCEPT COMPETITION

WOW 750 USD for a TC3 what is up with that

If you ever come to MALTA and visit JOHNBULL'S SHOP you will see for yourself.

TC3 Factory Team, Yokomo SD, etc. etc. top kits are all sold for this incredible figure, i.e. LM 250 (USD 750) !

Maybe this new shop will have decent prices

Competition is HEALTHY in every sport
i have to agree with this comment... competition also benefits the consumers, since they will be getting quality products at the "right" price.

i don't live in malta, so pls pardon my amazement at the price that you mentioned... but it makes me wonder, why don't you guys just order or buy over-seas, i can send you new kits, shipped at a price considerably lower than $750... and i'm just buying retail from my LHS...

anyway, if this is true, the hobby might not prosper due to the fact that prices are just too exorbitant, even though you guys can afford it, you'll always know that these are not the "true" street value of the items...

... just my $.02 worth.

does the R3 come with the gold ball studs so that you can reduce the toe in for the rear?

Im not steve .....But I would think not as they are option parts on other cudas. The only car I have seen with them in the kit was the WEB edition.

Thanks, the reason I ask is because on one web site I saw #a6710 and on another I saw #a6110, for what looked to be the same part. Just want to be sure I get the right ones.
