multi diff is pretty much there oneway, i dont know alot about the fk05 but if there is just a plan ole oneway you shoudl just get the multi diff cuz it probably would only be 10 bucks more but act as a hole bunch of different diffs

Just saw on the HPI Japan site...
says: Sept. release.
so that means around Oct/Nov. for the rest of the world to get it.

Zom....did you see the price tag...? 65,000 yen... WOW....the more HARA and KARN win with that thing, the price will keep climbing....
65,000 yen, very much like $650 US shipped from Japan.....I don't think we need to wait untill TOWER to import them, just order it thru Japan stores...just need to pay the HIGH PRICE....

By comparison, Pro4 Hara or 2005 edition is 55,000 yen.....

And still, give it the street price is 10-15% lower...still, good $550 for some graphite/aluminum and plastic..........you can buy a top of the line 1/8th for that price.
