Hey Dan, if I had some vacation days for travel where do you think I would be right now and not sitting here wishing I was there It just doesn't look like I'll be able to leave for any fly-away race anytime soon.

if the savings are that great who cares about the import tax or even the shipping cost, its still going to be far far cheaper.
but anyhow import taxs arn't that high.
i love the way rainbowten always give you the tracking number.
i live in new zealand, my order almost alway only take 3 days.
i sent a email to them telling them how much i apprecate there good service, and they sent me heaps of free stickers with my order , including a hude team orion one! these guys rock!

Default changing diffs

yes, front/rear gear boxes are the same. If sway bars are fitted they need to be loosened, then there's just three screws to remove and the diff can be removed.

Beside some practice I had my first race with the EVO3 last weekend. It was a qualification round for the Stock nationals but the difference is we“re running 17T spec motors currently instead of the 27T. It was a small and very narrow track and usually I don“t like tracks like that. Tried both my TC3 and the EVO3 in practice and the EVO seemed much faster for me so went with the EVO. Finally it payed off and I won 5 of 6 heats, also all of the 3 A-mains and fastest racelap. Was very fast from the beginning but very easy to drive also and improved from round to round. Not too bad for the first time.
Infact I never got the TC3 running like this.
Can“t await next race.
