I just checked the Barracuda in Jet hobby's website. Did I see it wrong or is it true that the rear suspension arm is clipped on one of those ball-joint? Mmm.. .interesting~

Good God I never buy japanese kits from HK
But its the rest of the world that is getting ripped off by people like him. He should post the prices on the baracuda up front. why he is not doing this tells me he just jacking people around with the Yen to HK dollar.........to US dollar.

What you said is kind of true. Some LHS especially small shops here buy stuff from Japan RC market and jack up price here.

Just out of curiosity, how did you know those people are Hong Kong??

Thumbs down

Wow its too easy, they look like HK people and the talk like them. Its so easy to tell the difference between hk people and Japanese.
Its just way sad seeing these scum of the earth spend 500,000 yen or more at one shop and move on a see them spend another X amount of yen at another shop. There are boxes waiting to be shipped from the shops to HK address too. I just makes me sick........

ok look at this price the tamiya 414M2 is selling here from 36,800 what he is selling them for in Us $ would equal 40,000 yen or more NOT including shipping!
The baracuda sells for 28,900 at the lowest prices american 250.00, whati am trying to say is there is no reason to jack up the prices like what happening now.


OF course japanese kits are cheaper in japan then HK. They are made here in Japan. baracuda, Ova T4 etc.........
