Default Ordeing my Drifter!!

Well, im about to place the order for my Ta05 Drifter. The list of all the stuff goes as follows:

towerhobbies:
Tamiya Raybirg NSX Ta05 Kit
Hitec HS-625MG high-speed servo
Futaba R303FHS 3 ch. FM 75MHz synth reciever
Trinity Co27 Monster stock motor, Pro version
Novak XRS reversible ESC

and im getting these hop-ups from one of my buddies:
3Racing Carbon fiber bumper stiffener
3Racing Carbon fiber front shock tower
3Racing Carbon Fiber Rear Shock tower
3Racing Carbon fiber front chasss stiffener
3Racing Carbon fiber rear chassis stiffener
3Racing Blue Alum. Steering block
3Racing Blue Alum. 2 deg rear hub carrier
3Racing alum Front and rear shocks
Yeah racing Blue Alum. front C-Hub
Tamiya sway bar front and rear sway bar set
Tamiya Carbon fiber battery hold down
Topcad Blue Alum. Motor mount


So, it seems like its gona be a preatty sick car, I'm probably gonna get a Yoko 180DX body for it, paint it up real nice, and keep the raybirg body for practice.

Ok, well i decided to order a body off of rcmart.com, and im having problems. I was never able to fully complete the entire ordering, and finalization process. On the last step, where they verify your credit card (after youve already typed in your information), half wya through loading the page my PC just wouldnt load any more, and i was staring at a blank white screen. i let it sit for like 1/2hour, and it didnt do anything, so ic losed the page. the order did show up in my account, and i never got an e-mail conformation, but my credit card company thought that it might be a fraudulent chrge, so they called, me asking whether it was me who ordered it, so obviously they got the charge, but did rcmart? there very very bad at replying to e-mails, so im wondering, do they have a phone number? what would you guys reccomend i do?

you should never do credit cards internationally, get an international money order. Simply select that option when you checkout

Yes, well they recieved my order, and its being processed right now. My towerhobbies order should be her in the next 2-3 days, and then my body from Rcmart probably wont show up for like 15 days. And im not gonna get all those hop-ups for about a week, the guy i getting thme from is out of town. But im gonna build up the car stock, post pics, and thn once ive got all the hop-ups installed take some more pics. The car should be sick with all the carbon fibre, and blue aluminum. Now i just gotta learn how to drift with the electrics

Man im soooo pump-ed right now. In my shipping tracking information it says that the towerhobbies order arrived in miami and was "out for delivery" at 7:00 am today. So im probablty getting it today, but definetly tommorrow. CANT WAIT!! How long would you say it would take on average to build the kit?
