My priority (highest to lowest):
1) Super Radi-Control
2) RC-Champ
3) F-Sangyo
4) Rakusei Model

Honestly, I don't suggest going to Rakusei Model as this's the only shop I can't buy anything!? Last year, whole shop was full of old version Yokomo 23T motors... Maybe they run business mainly not for retails?!

I can't stop sharing my 'Japan rc shopping' experience... Coz I miss there too much?!!

Fai, if I want to get lots of XRay T1 Factory Kit car + accessories + cheap price where in Tokyo ? RC Champ is good enough ?

Some local shops in USA sell XRay T1 FK US$290.

mafia: :lol I even had to buy a new backpack just so I could fit all the stuff I got for myself and friends back home! :lol I didnt see the shopping complex though. Must've missed a lot... too much focus on going to super radicon and f-sangyo.

ASW: Honestly, I think Xray is not popular in Japan... But I still remember RC Champ does have Xray parts!

I just got back from Japan today ..... and yes I went to RC Champ - Tokyo for my rc shopping needs. Anyway, the shopping experience was not good because I met two bada$$ shopkeepers: the chubby bald got B+ and the small lazy look got A- for being lousy characters

Here is my tip when shopping overseas: If you don't smile and you speak necessarily they ( the locals ) will treat you right !!!

Nothing wrong with RC Champ,..... just be firm and talk necessarily. The store has full range of Tamiya, Kyosho, Yokomo, KO Propo, Futaba, Sanwa kit & parts. The price is fair so no need to be so thrifty because otherwise you are going to pay more on taxi fares if you shop around. The taxi fares are expensive in Tokyo so plan your road trip carefully.

I think the shop have second hand cars too but very limited choice..... but are u sure u want to buy second hand after looking the inventory ? you had travel far away u know ?

JDM_DOHC : yeah , I was referring the shy guy, to be exact the sleepy lazy look. I think too much playing pachinko.
