Why not support your local model shop, or one of the many UK based shops that are doing these cars for under 200?

$255/130 may seem cheap, however by the time you factor in the cost of shipping (another $40/20), and the cost of import tax (which you are likely to be charged on a big parcel - expect another 40), and you are paying 200 for a car that you will have NO SUPPORT for when you have a problem.

This advice normally falls on deaf ears of course. Too many people in the internet age think only of their wallets when they buy, and for some reason are surprised when they get no after-sales service.

Mirage racing are the UK distributor and won't sell direct, talk to your local shop.

The RTR version comes with the controller - all RTR's come with a controller.

Don't get the RTR. Get the kit, build it yourself, and learn!
