i noticed that,and i was wondering too..
but the difference is about 8000Yen , about USD75.
no way it can be an engine!!
but i'm guessing tyres and bodyshell and HOPEFULLY , manifold and pipe.

Okay, so what is the price in American dollars? Will we in America be able to order it before the US release date?

Highly unlikely for US to have an earlier release.
Even now,i still cant order any from Japan.
If u were to order from Asia,yes u can get it b4 American release.
RRP at the website says Y40000 and another Y32000
that is US360 and US280.
I'm contacting some retailers , n i will let y'all know the minute it's out in the streets.

and the foams are made by GRP

the R40 looks good, but...it's HPI. I hope that it dosent break as easy ay my onld RS4 racer. That car sucked. It looks like it has the positives of both the MTx3, 705 and mixed them. I am waiting for some reviews...

what i think will also be good is that unlike the serpent which on the bodymounts has pins that you like have to hammer in, i think it will have the good old hpi mounts... but i still like my 705 better than any car..lol
