the net price of this car here is high comparing with its brother V1RR as it doesnt come with oneway and any graphite parts.

I actually ordered it from Japan. Bought it for $295 USD including shipping. Not that bad.

Add the optional Carbon Fiber parts plus one way, it is more expensive than the MTX-3.

Yea I know. I owned and sold a VIRR and I have a MTX-3 already. Just thought I try something different. Didn't like the NTC3 so I gave the FW05R a shot.
