The R2 'should' be quicker due to the lighter base weight

Good point Steve ...also the Yen to Dollar varies from week to week also..
I'm sure Steve will do his best to get you all the best prices

Hi Guys,

I was told that the car was shipped out last Friday, so everything is on schedule to arrive this week. I will check the tracking number tomorrow morning and give you guys an update.

Also, we are doing the best we can on prices, some of you might be able to find the parts cheaper else where internationally (like HK, which is a lot closer to Japan) but we are trying to distribute the car to other shops so it becomes more widely available, so please if you can, support your local shops I was working on a preliminary price list last night and so far the prices looks very good compare to other brands of cars, so we are looking in good shape.

Thanks

Fastburn,

We are trying hard to keep this kit no more than $300...and it looks like we will hit our target price. Also, shipping to canada for a car kit is around $29.99 by USPS EMS I believe. I don't like shipping regular air mail (as they have a chance of getting lost) EMS is fast, with tracking number and insurance.

If you planning on pre-ordering one, it is time to do it now, because I believe our first batch is down to just 3-4 kits.

Speedtech, when the kit arrives, will I have the opportunity to buy some spares and have them shipped with the kit?

Thats great news, price still seems very competitive to me, especially against our rip off UK prices, even after what I'm estimating import to cost

3-4 kits me thinks Alex Racing will have to start building a bigger factory
