I think its gonna be like Xray kits. THey come in batches. I read somewhere that you should pre-order the next batch is coming soon. I think that was Yokomo on facebook.

Yeah second batch October 29th.

It does say Euorpe but I would assume that it would be an international second batch.

Every day that I drive my bd7 I like it a little bit more. I couldn't be happier with this car.

Hi all,

When building the shock piston I noticed that they are not the same in both sides, one side is clear and on the other side a circle dipper on the piston how should it be facing after the shocks are built.

Thanks.

The manual tells you which way it goes. Pretty sure it goes down.

Let us know if you notice a difference. It might be a good time to try 3x1.1
