Thanks for sharing your view. There you go another info. In HK, shops are calling HK$2700 - 2900 price range(not including engine). They said they will have it around 1st - 2nd week of Oct.

Mike,

Will you be racing at the Paris race in Las Vegas in three weeks? If so, will you have the MTX-4 in your possession? Will you also run 1/8th scale as well? Also, which other team members will be attending the race?

Japan sale's direct to customers here in the US we sell to distributors who in turn sell to dealers who in turn sell to customers.
Japan price structure is different no inland fee's, no shipping fee's no import taxes ect..........
Example check the price of an Associated or Losi car in Japan reverse that and check the price in the USA.
This is like pricing a Toyota using Japan price margin.
Plain and simple US market is different than Japan.............
