towerhobbies has it in stock for around $350..to me that's a little too much, you may want to wait a couple of month until the price come down a little..or try oversea hobby shops..

Ya, Tower is a WHOPPING $379.99...

I would really like to get an FW-05R, but for that price, I think I will have to wait. I cannot see what makes the Kyosho so much more than an HPI R40, it sells for $289.99 currently on Tower, and the NTC3 Team Kit sells for $259.99.

Is the Kyosho FW-05R worth $120.00 MORE THAN the Associated NTC3 Team Kit, and $90.00 MORE THAN the HPI R40?....

Anyone, Anyone....

That high price is mostly due to the Kyosho brand name from what I am told. It looks alot like my rs4 3 SS, but with a few upgrades, like pivot ball suspension, optimzed brake and throttle positioning, threaded shock bodies and a few other new car niceties, but for that price I'd rather consider a serpent, Trinity G4 or Mugen.
