hey rob too early to ask. :lol:

Yokomo said this kit released by August but I don't think so. :lol:

But I got good news. they developed CS setup pulley ( I don’t get any info what teeth ) and belt, that mean we can make it easy to CS setup ! |O|

Yes!

This is only for the person who made preorder by July 29th.
Yokomo say releases this kit in the end of August. ???

As for the order after July 29, Yokomo ships blue and silver version only.
And Yokomo release the that things as a spare part.

I still waiting for some info about counter steer kit.

ahhh i get it... i could only quickly skim through it before... dont know why they wouldn't release them all in the colour combos tho, instead of the first few - not like it's gonna be 'exclusive' if you can get the parts later...

Looks like only a silver or black bridge is available, and either the blue or red other alum parts... the red and black would look sweet =)

Wonder if a BD is easy enough to DIY, and cheap enough to convert with spares when they are released?

I wonder if their counter pull kit will work with the VDF, but i suppose the VDF will just use the TA05 stuff to counter.
