Ask him about the title of the car and the insurance cost for 6 months.......LOL (just kidding), he even kept the receipt of the car and listed the time he brought the car...? Sounds like he is selling a real car....

Anyhow, 2004 spec is a best buy.

That's a nice track run by class act people. When I raced there last, I had used AE purple all the way around and used 20/26 60/54 gear combos. Car was very hooked up. The only thing that I might change when I race there next time is to go to copper springs f/R with a lighter oil like 40wt.

Actually, I don't think that is a price drop. It's just that the dollar is stronger. I paid about $300 for my second kit when I was there back in March. With the dollar stronger (as of today) I would pay $289. Now you really can't go wrong there. Gosh..dont you just hate the middleman (or is it men?), and can't forget about customs.

Oh...and if you had paid cash at the store that I bought the car at back on the 20th of May, you would have paid about $275. The dollar was very strong mid May. I probably pick up another kit when the exchange rate hits 120 give or take a few yen(hopefully).

Yes, with the EMS (only options) and extra whatever PAYPAL % they will charge you....it should be around $350 shipped to USA....still about $30 cheaper then MAY (that was the time I emailed CHAMP in japan and they quote me $395 shipped via paypal)

Now....$350, I still think that is a good deal.....just like the cost of a Serpent S710 or Mugen MTX3.....all are equipped with options.
