Thats fairly standard 'City Hobbies' marketing tactics... can never get enough to supply demand when the car first comes out and then they will flood the market with over supply!!!

You should be able to get shrink wrap in Sham Shui Po. A lot cheaper too!

Whilst going through my RC spares today (I decided to have a tidy up!) I found a brand new KO 713 servo (0.01s). This is the FET 7.2v version of the 712 servo. As far as I know I have not seen this servo for sale in HK. I bought it when I was last in Japan. I'm prepared to let it go for the same price as a 712. Send me PM if you are interested! I really don't have much use for this servo.

You can check the specs out here;
