Hi Guys,

The TRF417 pre-order link is now online at Speedtech RC. The kits should arrive in the US and be ready to ship by Dec. 17, possibly sooner. We'll ship all pre-orders the same day the kits arrive.

Happy Holidays,
Jeff

Bonus parts are 1 pair of white springs and 1 pair of blue springs (both white coloured) "for carpet tracks".

Standard springs are blue and yellow so you get the complete set. Suspension blocks are 1C x 2 (front), 1AX and 1E. HL cylinders for the dampers. Anything more you wanna know?

Will start building and post build pics tomorrow. Carbon prep night tonight

If they really wanted to include bonus parts, they should have thrown some HPI springs in the box.

Yeah, everytime Jilles is with them, they are right on the money and all the way in the front. But they are lacking behind Ronald when Jilles is not there. Sad, but true.

I really don't know why it haven't reached the shops all over the world yet. It has arrived in Denmark and is on sale already. Is Denmark really the only country to have recieved kits?

I think the release date is the same, around the 17th/18th Dec. RC Market are taking pre-orders and also RC Champ.

It does look really good, and maybe this has more to do with my current situation than anything else... but I'm not rushing out to get one!!
