Oh, ok. Do they have the same "straight line distance" as the stock Berg links, or will they alter the wheelbase slightly?

Thanks TDC57! My order shipped yesterday, so it wont be long now!

I do have R6V2 (awesome). I'm looking at either Fallout 3 or COD 5 as my next purchase...

Lucky they have been out of stock for a couple fo days... I wanted to get one with the coupon... Instead I just read on rccrawler hopefully trying to figure how to wire the dig so when the do come in stock I will be able to figure it out..

What radio are you going to run? I have been reading about the 4pk and dual esc/dig setup.. it may be a little much for my first build... but will see Muahahaha

I think they extend the WB a few MM depending on how the shocks are set up.

I have been looking everywhere to get the same price Amain was selling those kits for, and they are all sold out or over 350..

but I found this place.. think they are legit? I wonder how much shipping is.. http://www.ridestoys.com/index.php?p...emart&Itemid=3

I sent them an email.. we will see what they say..

That is less than wholesale- same for every other crawler kit there. Seems very fishy to me. Why would somebody want to lose money on such an expensive kit?

They want you to do a wire transfer, to make the purchase... Hmm let me think about that....

Hahahahhaa! NO. They're in Indonesia... WTH? The least they could do to seem legit would be to get a PP account.

Well I have been emailing them and they said they would do PayPal but they never have... Do you think it is worth a shot? Just might take a while to get my money back.. I called my credit card company and asked if I bought something online and if it fraud I am protected.. so if I went through paypal and my credit card I should have double protection..

I also double checked the prices are US currency..

Do you think it is worth a shot?

So they have a PP account but never used it? I think it's worth a shot. You would have "double protection" in that case. Those prices are too awesome not to at least give them a chance.

You can give it a shot, but there is no way that it isn't a total sham. Just about everything there is below wholesale prices, so they couldn't even buy the kits for as cheap as they are selling them. On top of this, prices are in USD and not rupiah. Why would an Indonesian hobby shop sell in USD?


I say you will be wasting time, and thus money.
