I had someone bring it back for me from Italy about 5/6 years ago as none was available in the UK.
Where to actually get them from now I don't know, I only see the cheap flimsy boxes available now..

Try looking again at the carbon deck and front suspension fittings.
Also just because it's on show does not mean it's on release, look what happened to the last Electric car, it vanished without seeing the light of day, now they show the TF-5.

So, do these look like parts that are already in production for other kits (rrr hubs, etc.)?

I sure hope that the conversion helps the handling of the FW05R. While my FW is great when there is traction, it turns into a pig at low traction conditions, mainly I think due to its weight. I just did a day of testing back to back between the FW and the RRR and while the FW seem smoother and more stable, the RRR has tons of steering and is much more nimble than the FW. The stock RRR with steel screws is much lighter than my FW with all titanium screws.
