Selling on ebay you do not need to have a license or a store to sell anything. That's the difference. But if you have it in a retail store and then sell it to the public, that's a whole different story. Some people call it grey or black market. Understand? No one is telling on anybody, I just hate to see what will happen if some U.S. Kyosho reps just happen to drop by and wonder how are you stocking the Kyosho parts in a retail store while not purchasing it from the legal provider.

Well in general we have a tight track and i like a set up that i can get on the power early some times right at or before the apex of a turn with out the rear breaking loose too fast and hooking into a spining out before i get a chance to correct and get the rear in check. our tracks are so small most in the in field you stay in first gear. this year i want to get an early start our first race is the 28th. I will go out and try some more stuff and i will post back in a few thanks for responding ALL

I am not saying the grey or black market is the way to go but sometimes it has to be this way. Since (not so)Great Plains is not providing us with the "RR" then heck, I'll be there at the LHS buying and doesn't matter to me how they got it
