Herminator,

The $550 MSRP is worked out for the US market. The US discount rate is really strange, but if you look at the Associated FT TC3, it's over $500 as well (I think as is with all pro-level touring cars). It's just a math formula really, and it is mainly for the dealers.

Thought it was something like that, when you convert that price to Pounds though for most kits we won't be paying much less Even though I'm getting one shipped overseas I'm sure it's considerably cheaper than the R2 would be sold for in the UK, if it ever makes to the shops here.

I might just have you do that...I got hooked up with hi sponser, ADC and they are great people. I painted his car that he ran last year and have a lot of pics. They are supposed to put them up on his race site soon but haven't heard from him in a week. And you've got to be kidding me about the green and orange aluminum R2s... aren't you???
