G, have you asked around regarding the problem with the new stiff arms and the stock mounting balls having so much slop? I'm kinda hesitant about installing mine if that problem is there.

I'll ask around, since the product has been out for a couple of weeks.

As far as oil, everyone has their own little take on it. Generally, it's like 80wt upfront and then 60wt. in the back. But then again, Taka used 20wt oil with the stock damper pistons and bodies all-around. One thing I'm going to play with is the shock rebound and try to get the car to have less. The idea is to either ride the curb or die flipped upside down by the curb.

The manager at my LHS wasn't sure on the cost since they are not in yet so it might be a little higher or hopefully a little lower.

Some are predicting the car could have a street price in the low $300's.

Well the manager at the shop does give me a discount on big items. I will be paying just a little over cost for it. I bet most shops will probably sell it for around $329. Still better than buying the regular kit and all the hop ups.

RCInfinity,

I'm figuring about $279.99-$289.99 is what we'll sell it for...when ever they get them to us

Sounds even better! At Tamiya last sat, Jon mentioned that they got the first tuned kit in from Japan. He also said that all it is, is the Williams kit with the anodized parts thrown on top of the body.
