Re: Whoa... Check out the size of this!

They look pretty good. Price is great to but as soon as i saw it I thought the item is probably cheap crap.
What's the deal with postage.. Bit weird (and expensive

Brisbane / VIC / ACT / NSW (out of Sydney)
Perth / SA / TAS / QLD (out of Brisbane)

If they post from Brisbane why don't they send the Bris ones from there instead of Sydney.(rhetorical question, no answers required).
On second thought, they probably do but still charge $80 for postage..

Congratulations. You are still alive. Most people are so ungrateful to be alive, but not you. Not anymore.

Re: Whoa... Check out the size of this!

yeah I did not notice that but it's a good point. If the RRP is correct i'd say it's not exactly cheap crap but true there's probably better quality ones in hobby shops but i've never seen any that big before...

Re: Whoa... Check out the size of this!

yeah the hobby shop ones would be better as they are proper models, these are more toys, but i bid on one a bit back, got outbid, but they would be a great fun car to drive thats for sure : )

Re: Whoa... Check out the size of this!

Yeah of course they'd be better... their RRP is 3 times as much than those on ebay

$1500 is a hell of a lot but you'd have alot of fun with it that's for sure
