    I am starting to realize that my Colony Park, bought ~8 000km from the USA, was cheaper than the ones sold there. In the country of its origin. Yay.

    My guesses would be:
    - speedo cable;
    - speedo itself;
    - a breaking down relay (the autolamp one tends to rattle like this sometimes).

    What about the undercarriage then? Is it intended to work as a replacement/enhancement of a serial injection kit from Tamiya/Revell etc, or is it expected that the buyer builds it from scratch?
