No, I was comparing the discounted prices on the mags....they are not really that cheap...except for V1RR Y24500 which comes to around HK$14xx!! But I have one already!!

There are some stuff which is a little cheaper like the Altas YM34 Type T Y34500 = HK2070...I think normal HK prices is about $2200!!!! see hardly worth it. Would be interesting to see how much 999 bought his Type T for???

Plastic hubs F/R
Pivot balls x4
Pivot ball holders x4
Hub bearings x8
RR rear wheel drive cups x2
V1 front drive cups x2
V1 Wheel hex x4 (just get the plastic ones from V1R driver who has upgraded to alloy!)
V1 front drive shaft x2

Use the normal MTX drive shafts for the front but with no O rings.
Use the V1R (normal) Front drive shaft for the rear, use 1 O ring.

I bought a new shell for the Xray today. An Altas EB110....but it does not fit. The rear damper plate for Xray is too high so the back end cannot be lowered to wheels!!!! Will have to change for RSX tomorrow!!!!
