Default RIDE Competition Parts

I just picked up my first Ride body, the Honda Accord, and I have a couple of questions.
What are those 2 clear tinted squares that come with the wing mounting hardware?
It probably says on the sheet somewhere, but everything is in Japanese.
Also, the body seems super light weight. Which is fine, but was wondering if anybody has run into problems on handling?

That square lexan pieces are the endplates for the wing. I think Ride is the only one including precut endplates.

You mean their meant to be painted, trimmed and mounted as end pieces?
Well that makes sense.
I thought they were some sort of weighting material.
Wow, the MI2 must have the body posts really far apart.

Yes exactly. I donīt know how are the dimensions of the endplates included with the Accord.
I just have a Ride Stratus and the endplates included are perfect in dimensions according to our rules. So you even donīt have to trim them. Just paint or not and attach them to the wing.

Yeah, my friend loves his Stratus so I though I would give one a chance.
funny thing is that, you cannot find any info on the ride bodies anywhere.
Even on the Ride website, they only show tires, glue and the Shock Vaccum pump?
Where is the company info on these things?

Speaking of which, anybody try that shock vaccum pump?

Speetech is the only US distributer I know of.
A lot of the Hong Kong companies carry them like:
http://shopping.rcmodel.com.hk/
and RC Mushroom
The stuff is super hard to find in the US.
Anybody know of anywhere else to buy in the states?

I guess thats what they mean by Lost In Translation!
Cool Google feature though, I'm going to use it more often now.
