Received my ASP .61 engine on Jan 27 from HK. Originally ordered it on Jan 16 via EMS. The customs declaration actually showed the full cost which I had picked when ordering. Sat in U.S. customs about a day. I figure 11 days to U.S. is pretty good.

Now on to the mods as Bruce suggested on the ASP 52.....which I'am sure will save me a few headaches. Thanks Bruce....

Here in Sweden we have to pay 25% VAT. However, despite ticking whatever checkbox they request transcript from either the credit card invoice or Paypal and have no trust what's written elsewhere. They check about 50% of the shipments.
