Default Don't think car prices are too high?

Then check this out:

TRF415 Refine 2

The suggested manufacturer's price is NINE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY EIGHT DOLLARS!!! That's a street price of almost $600!!! For an electric car???

Actually, if you buy it from the right place - the 415MSX is quite a bit cheaper than the Cyclone, plus the 415 comes with extra tuning parts as standard.

Where is the right place? I'm sure everyone else would like to save the money.

Street prices wise? Hell yes it is expensive. Through online Japanese retailers? Almost half the price of street (RRP) prices.

I wish it was as easy as that, but just like every other industry, as soon as you buy the latest and greatest kit they are working on the very next version that makes what you have obselete the day after you buy it! Even the MSX kit (not the conversion kit) is going to include a totally different chassis and a few other features that the 415, 415MS, and 415 MSX Conversion did not have! You could not ask for a better deal if you are an R/C vendor/manufacturer!
