I have been searching... the only place I found the firelap to be sold was by some Aussie on the bay... I need some of these cars... or at least find some of the old iw-02s...

Thanks

you can get them at toys east or D****** RC Mart (both are in HK). I just ordered some from D****** - the 04 Iwaver Monsters. They came this week and have the hard body shells - no more lexan cheap bodys

again, thjis has been covered many times.... firelap is a proprietary name for a rebrand of iwaver which will only be availabe to a select few asian shops likely. iwaver, the offical brand it seems, will be available worldwide thru retailers such as leon and mini-z

Toy East carries Firelaps as well...

Arch2b, does the rebranding mean mini-z will no longer carry the older style IW-02? This was my understanding, but I'd hate to give out the wrong info.

I looked on the toy east site... no ready kits for the firelap. I know it has been covered Arch, but it seems the suplies are running short... I didn't want to order from rc fart cause they were just the old 02s... the firelap had better colors and looked to be better plastic...

still on the lookout for the FIRELAP cars...


My guess is that if there is a demand for the Firelap then Mini-z will get them in for sure.

Yes, they were under $40 before they went out of stock 1-2 weeks ago. It's a shame, they're quite a deal at that price. I got mine a few days ago, and I'm impressed with it. I haven't seen any real issues with it, including the dreaded twich. I have only tested it out with one other car/transmitter on, though, so that might prove different at a GTG. On a lighter note, I noticed the following gem in the troubleshooting section of the manual, under the heading "loss of control":

"Front Wheels vibrate side to side. ------------------ Due to high performance digital servo some vibration may occur. This is not a fault"

So apparently the twich is not a bug...it's a feature. :D
