Well, I figured what the heck, I'm not gonna be in Japan often, just take'em. Besides, I envy you that you can easily have access to parts and hopups. People here in the States are not that fortunate.

Sorry, I didn't bring my digi cam, but here's the info you maybe need it to figure out:

For the Rear Spring:

RED: Diam. 1.6X6.5*26.5
BLUE: Diam 1.7X6.5*26.5
GREEN: Diam 1.8X6.5*26.5

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I figure that the larger the diameter of the spring, the harder it is. Please confirm.

Do they have the credit card surcharge at Harmony? All the Japanese R/C Shops I went to in Tokyo DO charge me 5% of credit card surcharge, in addition to the 5% VAT.

Cash is surely the best, just like the old saying...

Too bad a lot of Japanese haven't been fond of the PayPal convenience. And, PayPal do charge hefty fees when dealing internationally, i.e. currency exchange fee on top of the PayPal International Fee, etc.

Well the next time I'm in Japan, the end of July, I'll make sure I bring tons of cash. It does make things a lot easier.

Does Harmony ship to the US?

If so, do they have a website /online shop?

I've heard a lot about them but never saw a link.

Thx
